Format: Paperback
This cookbook is the best thing to happen to foodie culture since Julia Child was outed as a spy. The authors have: a) great taste in music; and b) great taste in taste. Recognizing that the longstanding punk rock tradition of DIY did not stop at the kitchen door (or the motel dinette microwave), the authors have culled great recipes from great rock bands on the rise. Most are healthy, many are family traditions, and all will make you feel a little more connected to your favorite band.

The food network should stop with the soap operatics and start rockin' with Kay & Lynn Owens.

This was a unique, fun read with some great recipes. The book has a recipe for an awesome chocolate zucchini cake. Even a recipe for a Spicey Cold Celery, YUM. This would be a great gift idea for all those hard to buy for people on your list.

Format: Paperback
I am totally enamoured of some of the bands that contributed to this book, and that makes the food all the more alluring. I've thus far enjoyed the recipes that I've tried (a few soups, the chocolate zucchini bread), and this is a book I like to flip through for inspiration sometimes when I'm planning menus for the week.

That being said, I'm not so crazy about the layout. The recipes aren't necessarily organized into coherant sections, which is cumbersome. I'm kind of a simpleton, so I would have definitely appreciated more pictures. I also wasn't crazy about the intros/band bios by the authors; they were generally sort of dry and not as funny as I think they were intended to be.

In all, yay for a good variety of good foods, boo for disorganization and rambling prose.

... and the prose is fun. Kay and Lynn Owens' book really struck a nerve with me: I literally read it in one sitting, and am inspired to cook! They have a great sense of humor and do an incredible job capturing the DIY passion that inspires both the interesting variety of music they touch upon and the recipes that look to tantalize our taste buds. I will do as they suggest and begin to cook for myself with more frequency and ingenuity. With their book, I've got my three (+100 or so) recipes (chords)- I'm off to create dinner and expand my musical tastes! Thanks, Kay and Lynn!

This book will not increase either your indie or culinary "cred." Most of the recipes are idiosyncratic, bordering on the pointless, and the book does not appear to be anything more than a sociologist's indie-rock vanity project. I've tried a selection of the recipes, and few taste better than diner fare. A notable exception in this regard is the recipe from Sonic Youth, which is quite delicious. Really, though? Unless you're getting this used, at a steep discount, it's nothing more than a novelty cookbook/read.

Format: Paperback
This was a good book- I'd be tempted to give it a 4.5 stars if possible- I was kind of hoping this book would be a little more clever. Pretty standard cookbook. Not really a lot of super healthy or super delicous sounding recipes. Still worth the low cost, but not exactly going to be my go-to cookbook
