Artist’s Cookbook: Bangin Shepherd Pie Courtesy of The Cold Start

I’ve spent the last few hours scouring my rock and roll thesaurus looking for words that accurately describe The Cold Start and their brand of music. Sure I could’ve just pulled from the band’s Facebook page and explained that their music is a bit of “pop, indie and rock hooks infused with emotion, fire and fragility” but that would just be pure laziness. So here is what I’ve […]

Cook: Tomate El Pan and Cream of Roasted Bell Pepper Soup

Have you seen that commercial for a major insurance company where a guy is chatting with an agent early in the morning and his wife comes down from bed and thinks she catches him getting his hanky panky on? Well something very similar happened to me last week. I was flipping through Village Voice’s Hundred Favorite Dishes and came across the Pan Con Tomate from Casa Mono. It was […]

Cook: Firecracker Tofu Over Vegetable Fried Rice

Firecracker Tofu. I’d like to say that this dish came from somewhere cool like a llama raising shepherd I met at Chuck E. Cheese or a Vegan glass blower making stained glass windows for St. Micheal’s Cathedral. Unfortunately it came from somewhere darker. An absolute obsession that nearly broke J-Fur and I up. The story goes like this: After graduating from college and hanging around Chicago […]

Cook: Radish and Pesto Crostini

I don’t mean to be such a humble bragger but I was contacted a few week’s ago by the National Radish Council for a bit of an impossible mission. The council had mistakenly been commissioned by the United States government to try and improve relationships between Mexico and the US. They tried to give the money back insisting that they were just a vegetable and […]

Food Flavored Song of the Day: Turnip by Baby Baby

Behind every worthwhile band there are a couple of suits willing to do whatever it takes to make a buck or two. The suits who serve Baby Baby pulled them aside earlier this year and suggested a bit “more cowbell.” Baby Baby knew exactly what they meant. They also knew that when a suit suggests something you try to make it happen. Enter “Turnip”, the band’s newest single. […]

Cook: Tamari-Lime Tempeh and Rice with Edmame and Corn

“…the whole shebang owes less to Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem than to Vampire Weekend, from whom Win Butler and co. most likely learned to use their passport stamps as musical inspiration without coming across (well, to most people, anyway) as craven imperialist marauders. (You gotta admit that syncing their full-album, pre-release-stream lyric video to the 1959 Brazilian flick Black Orpheus is some impressively zealous trolling.)” -Rob […]

Cook: Artichoke Po’ Girl Sandwich with Roasted Red Pepper Remoulade

Z-Bot curled up on my lap the other night, turned her little blue eyes towards my face and gave me the look. Anyone who is a parent knows exactly what I’m talking about when I say the look. It is that moment when your child asks, without uttering a sound, for you to tell them a good story. I bit into my latest creation, a […]
