I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT COOK WITHOUT MUSIC. The music I choose is the soundtrack to my culinary experience. It shapes how I compose my concoctions. I opt for beats that keep me moving around the kitchen.
I find most of my tunes on Hype Machine. It’s a streaming app that tracks music blogs around the world, featuring remixes that are rare elsewhere. My brother introduced me to it, and I’m addicted. Download it if you can — it’s free!! Meanwhile, click on each of the track lists under each recipe. Here’s a flavor of the type of music you’ll hear.
I used to list different music every month, but now I listen to music based on my moods. So below are a few. I’m constantly updating them, and I’m always looking for new music. I love getting your feedback! Let me know what you think and share your fave tunes!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I try to share a song with you every Monday. Here’s a compilation of my “Monday Music” recommendations.
If you’re looking for classic R&B and Hip-hop, this one’s for you. From Run DMC and Biggie to newer tunes.
This is a bit mellower, but still has beats. It’s a good one to play in the background of a dinner.
This is exactly what it sounds like: music you might hear in a club. Frankly, I listen to this the most when I’m cooking. I need the base and beats to get around the kitchen!
