Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Sadnecessary by Milky Chance?

In the last eleven months I don’t think there’s an album I’ve enjoyed as much as I’ve enjoyed German folk-pop duo Milky Chance’s Sadnecessary. From start to finish, I’ve eaten that shit up. I love the way the band takes low key, mid-tempo acoustic pop, shoves it into an espresso machine and steams it with a side of DJ production. You know that former dance club kid that now […]

Cook: Black Beans Ain’t No Thang Burgers

Here I am, blogging away in the wee hours of the morning. This is partially because I passed out so early putting the little one to sleep and partially because of the weird dream that stirred me awake. The dream went like this: I was on some alien planet battling this creature which had the power of disconnectivity (the ability to avoid my sword by […]

Cook: Vegan Loose Meat Sandwiches

Nell Frizzel, a UK contributor for munchies (VICE’s food channel), recently spoke to Essex-born artist Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau about his “Communal Juicing” exhibit. The idea behind the exhibit is that juicing takes a piece of food, extracts juice from it leaving behind a “shitty pulp”. Mathew questions why anyone would do this? It makes no difference to the world or to your life if you […]

Cook: Apple and Sausage Casserole

It was just after midnight on Halloween night when I heard a rap, rap, rapping at my front door. Only thirty seconds before I had clicked the off button on my television effectively erasing all signs of the blood, guts and senseless acts of violence that had been swimming before my eyes for the last hour and a half. I feared the unknown in a way […]

Kid Tested, Father Approved: Butternut Squash and Apple Stew

“Wallace spent the rest of his life trying to explain away his racist past and in 1982 he won his last term in office with over 90% of the black vote, such is the duality of the southern thing.” -Drive-By Truckers “The Three Great Alabama Icons” Toddlers are rather funny eaters. You make up a batch of sweet, cranberry laced, granola bars and think they will […]

Where We Eat: Little Greek Restaurant

I strolled into Little Greek last weekend like a lover rekindling with an old flame at the scene of one of their most sensuous jaunts. You see, a couple of months previous Yelp held an event at the restaurant. Head honcho Nick was led the event and he made sure that everything was done right. When he realized I was a vegan, he adjusted on the fly and […]

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 […]
