Michelle Davis is the co-creator of the badass blog and namesake cookbooks, Thug Kitchen. A self-taught cook, Davis is responsible for the award-winning recipes and co-writes the site and books with fellow creator Matt Holloway. She cashiered in a grocery store for 8 years and grew tired of how healthy brands never targeted people who live on a budget. She started TK with Matt in 2012 to fix that.
After winning Saveur’s Best New Food Blog in 2013, the duo decided to make it official and write a book. Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give a F*ck was an instant #1 NY Times bestseller and remained on the list for 48 straight weeks (and counting). Their second book and third books, TK: Party Grub and Thug Kitchen 101, were also all instant NY Times bestseller. Their books have been translated into over 7 different languages and their cookbook trailers have amassed over 20 million views. When Michelle isn’t working, she enjoys naps and watching cat videos. Her favorite food is anything with carbs.
