Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When touring the country, there are only so many times one can stomach Taco Bell, Burger King and KFC; no one knows this better than touring musicians, as journalist Zuaro proves in this winning collection of on-tour favorites that run the gamut from simple (Death Cab for Cutie's Veggie Sausage and Peanut Butter Sandwich) to upscale (Patrick Phelan's Swanky Mac N Cheese, featuring lobster and white truffles) to no-scale (the secret to Strung Out's Rock 'N' Ramen is using two Ramen flavors, not one). There's a band for just about every facet of the indie rock world, a diversity of taste reflected in recipes ranging from Battles's Roasted Bone Marrow "Battles Style" to Camera Obscura's Vegetarian Paella. Naturally, there's a fair number of meals that won't sound like a good idea until after 3 a.m., such as a combination of onions, peppers, cheese, eggs and refried beans that Silkworm calls a Cheesy Sleazy. Covering all the bases, including drinks (They Might Be Giants offer up a Countrypolitan with cranberry and pomegranate juice), each recipe also includes comments from the submitting musicians-some more coherent than others (quoth NOFX's El Hefe, "make some mac and cheese, then mix in a can of nelly chilly ... word")-making this a fun, faithful look at what rockers eat when they're not rocking out.

Format: Paperback
"I Like Food, Food Tastes Good: In the Kitchen with your Favorite Bands" is an indie-rock cookbook that features recipes from groups like the Violent Femmes, They Might Be Giants, Calexico and Death Cab For Cutie. (These four bands also happen to be the only contributors I'd heard of, but people much cooler than I will likely recognize the other musicians.) The 105 recipes in this book are varied and range from "Big Apple Quiche Muffins" in the "Breakfast" chapter to "Wild Boar Ragu" in the "Main Courses for Carnivores" chapter. I've had the book for a little over two weeks and have made an adapted version of the <a href="[...]">"Asian Stir-Fry for Vegetarians Who Hate Vegetables,"</a> the oatmeal cake pictured above, a pear and goat cheese panini, and eggplant parmesan, which I baked instead of frying as the recipe recommends. I was pleased with how these meals turned out and was especially grateful for their "easy on the effort" approach. Other recipes range from down-home comfort food like mac and cheese, to playfully titled drinks like "Patriot Act Mojitos," made with fresh mint, sparkling water, Cuban rum and sugar, among other things. For the health-conscious there are several 'healthy alternative' recipes, for instance, cookies made with powdered green tea and vegan chocolate chip cookies. And for the adventurous, the "Strawberry Pop Cake," which is made with strawberry soda and Jell-O, promises an interesting afternoon in the kitchen. Overall this is a good little cookbook with recipes that can be made when you're short on time and that can easily be modified to suit your tastes. It also begins to answer the question: What do musicians eat when they're on the road?

There are two things about this book that I wasn't too thrilled about.

What do our music stars eat? Good question. This book features over 100 recipes with clever notes about the food (and drink) preferences of some of our favorite cutting edge music types.

My Morning Jacket offers up their "You can care if ya wanna" sandwich. The Long Winters show us Alaska-style macaroni soup al carne. Mojave 3 has a nifty recipe for leek and potato soup.

I'll confess, I hadn't heard of half these bands, they are that trendy. The food is good and the notes are so precious. Worth checking out.

Format: Paperback
This cookbook has something for everyone. It combines the best aspects of cookbooks and album liner notes, with the emphasis on wide-ranging foods for every occasion, with recipes easy enough for me, challenging enough for my auntie, and tasty enough for anyone you care to cook for. Above all, it's very broad, both in the breadth of musicians and the types of food represented. I wish it had an accompanying CD, but that's what iTunes is for. Buy it for me for christmas! Yummy!

This book includes a comprehensive selection of vegetarian, flexitarian, vegan, and other dishes. I love the selection an creativity of recipes. This is defiantly a good buy if you love food just as much as music.

Also, seller was prompt and honest.
