Cooking and Rock Music
Posted 10 June 2002 - 04:16 PM
Do you see any congruence between cooking and rock music? The two seem to intersect at least conceptually in KC and CT, unless, in my quest for relevancy, I'm reading too much in there. Could happen.
The nuts-and-bolts Les Halles cookbook you describe in the Cookbook topic sounds beyond fantastic. I'm imagining, I'm hoping for, an elaboration of the short list in KC about how to restaurantify one's home cookery, which included e.g. not stinting on the use of butter, and the importance of shallots.

Rock and roll in the kitchen? Sure. Necessary for prep--and post-work break-down. You'll notice a lot of overlap in the personnel between rock and rollers and cooks. I do have a few rules, though--when it comes to kitchen listening:
NO Billy Joel
NO Elton John
NO Dave Matthews, Phish, Grateful Dead or hippie shit...
Fans of the Dead Boys, Curtis Mayfield, Bootsie Collins, Parlaiment, Ramones, Snoop, Clash, Voidoids, Johnny Thunders, Hole, Chili Peppers, Modern Lovers, Cramps, Elvis Costello, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi, Stooges, early pre-punk, Mersey Beat, NY or London Punk, pre-disco funk, early Roxy (okay, I'm a sap), Jorge Ben, Gato Barbieri, the Apocalypse Now or Reservoir Dogs or any Sergio Leone soundtrack and the Pistols song, Bodies-will enjoy favored nation status and rapid promotion. Soca salsa, mariachi, tropicale, reggae, zouk, dub, dance-hall all welcome.
Fans of Billy Joel will be terminated immediately.

R.I.P. Dee Dee - we'll miss you...
And don't you think a raft of B.J. fans is too good?
How about turning them into charcoal for use in BBQing a big ole pig...
