As the holiday season approaches, and you are inundated with pumpkin recipes and all the DIY projects for gifts and decorations, here is something unique. If you are already know about Turntable Kitchen, you are cool and ahead of the game, so own it. If not, then continue.
In my searching for ideas for writing, life and otherwise, I stumbled across a wonderful site which has already been covered by the Huffington Post. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/25/food-and-music_n_936173.html
Turntable Kitchen http://www.turntablekitchen.com/ (Connecting food and music) overflows with hipster-ness. It is a blog that pairs food with music. The site has not only recipes listed but music reviews and not to mention articles like “Turntable Kitchen’s Top 6 Recommended Turntable Systems” which is what I would qualify as a high-end discussion.
The recipes are unique as well http://www.turntablekitchen.com/recipes/herbed-parmesan-beans-with-tomatoes-and-figs/ but nothing so esoteric you can’t make it. The Herbed Parmesan Beans with Tomatoes and Figs is paired with Salt Cathedral-Oom Velt EP just to give you a taste of both.
Pairings Box is one of my favorite little headers. You can subscribe to this or give as a gift what are you giving and receiving? Exclusive 7” vinyl, Digital Mixtape, 1-2 premium ingredients, 3 seasonal recipes and tasting notes.
The October Box is a Bistro Dinner with recipes that include Warm Olives and Feta with Citrus Zest and Oregano, Fall Minestrone with Fennel, so far so good. The featured Artist is Army Navy. http://www.turntablekitchen.com/2013/10/tk025-army-navy-crushed-like-the-car-bw-pack-of-dogs/ I know nothing about them, so I had read up and listen. Turntable provides not only the reviews, but also listening which will expand your music palate for sure.
Now, the music is rising artists and what I would call hip alternative. I like some of this, but if you are looking for say a mix tape of the brat pack to go with martini evening, it doesn’t appear this will be for you.
I like the idea of this site, although I feel like it is way cooler than I am, but that doesn’t take too much. The site was “born in a foggy Inner Sunset, San Francisco apartment and run by an inspired couple: Kasey (also known as Ksenya) and Matthew.” http://www.turntablekitchen.com/about/
A refreshing site or as they say, “Turntable Kitchen is a place to come home to, travel with and turn up the volume on.”
