I Like Food, Food Tastes Good

In the Kitchen with Your Favorite Bands

Overview

From the publisher

Food writer Kara Zuaro knows a lot of musicians, and she’s found they all share one obsession (besides music, of course): eating. Whether they’re on the tour bus reminiscing about meals past or at home in their own kitchens, they’ve all got favorite recipes — and they’re willing to share.

This uniquely irresistible cookbook collects contributions from more than 100 artists, including indie icons like the Violent Femmes, Belle & Sebastian, and They Might Be Giants; current favorites like Franz Ferdinand and My Morning Jacket; and up-and-coming acts like Catfish Haven and Voxtrot.

Some recipes are inspired by a particular song in the band’s repertoire, while others are taken from real-life experience. Each one bears the often quirky stamp of its source; while these are thoroughly tested, cook-from-me recipes, Zuaro has left the musicians’ wording and instructions intact, which makes for a collection that’s as much fun to read as it is to use.

Devendra Banhart’s contribution, for example, reads like this:

RIGHT ON!!!!!!
here is my favorite recipe for:
AFRICANAS RICAS!
you shall require!
many bananas!
a box of graham crackers!!!

SOUR CREAM!!

Part indie music discovery guide, part foodie fantasy, and all fun, I Like Food, Food Tastes Good is a cookbook for anyone whose iPod is always on.
