A Blog to Set the Musical Mood for Any Meal – GOOD

 

This is actually a really cool website, Turntable Kitchen combines music and food into one MEGA blog.

 

 

“In case you were wondering what music to listen to when eating a polenta cake with olive oil and rosemary, try the electronic-infused songs of James Blake. What food goes with the sultry tunes of soul singer Raphael Saadiq? Bolognese.

So advises the San Francisco blog Turntable Kitchen, which fuses founders Kasey and Matthew Hickey’s twin loves of food and music by suggesting the perfect tracks for every meal to accentuate the experience of both, the Hickeys say. “I rely on the textures and flavors in the food to find an appropriate pairing,” Matthew says. “For example, is the dish smoky? Then it will pair well with an artist with a smoky croon.”

Turntable Kitchen’s latest project is the Pairings Box, a monthly subscription service that lets the blog’s faithful receive a “hand-assembled box of goodies” in the mail each month. “We wanted to give people an opportunity not only to discover new foods and music, but to create a unique experience that they could share with friends and family,” said Kasey. Boxes include a limited-edition record (they’re pressing their own) with Matt’s favorite tracks of the moment, several of Kasey’s themed and seasonal recipes, plus dried ingredients and other special treats.

The first box will debut this fall, but it’s limited edition. Sign up here to be notified when the first one comes out.

Go to This Library and You’ll Get a Human Being with Your Book

Go to This Library and You’ll Get a Human Being with Your Book.

Here is an interesting take on how to get more involved when researching and learning about a topic. When you check out a book at a library in Surrey, British Columbia you also get a free human being to discuss any questions or extra information you want to know. I wonder if there will be any late fees regarding the return of the human.. haha

beet cake

here is a beautiful video on the process of making a beet cake.

the process of creating a meal is one of the most beautiful and rewarding things we can do everyday. the slow, methodic combination of ingredients and the handling of their unique textures can be a theraputic release. we like to capture all the beauty and emotion that cooking can bring.”
