Music for cooking to.


If music be the food of love: Little Sonny – Eli’s Pork Chop

Here’s a funky slice of harmonica grooving goodness for you. Little sonny has a mean set of pipe on him and this tune is helping us work our way through a deep December afternoon in the kitchen. If they ask you what’s cooking then tell em’ “Pork Chops!”


If music be the food of love: Junior Wells – Chitlin Con Carne

So here’s another food related track. I like the vibe of this one – I listened to it whilst making a nice “three alarm” chilli con carne as well… how apposite! I went deep into the umami cave and developed a pretty tasty batch with chipotle, birdseye and habenero peppers as well as some sweet pointed and bell peppers. Throw in some of my colleague’s husbands smoky paprika and chilli mix and some other wee flavour bombs and I’m half way to heaven.

Wish I had some of The Tempest Brewery’s Cascadia Blonde beer to wash it down!  Another favorite of mine. Whilst on that note a big well done to them and their brewery tap The Cobbles  on yet more CAMRA award success!

If Music be the food of Love: Soul Kitchen – The Doors

“Soul Kitchen” by The Doors from their self titled debut album The Doors is a tribute to the soul food restaurant Olivia’s in Venice Beach, LA, where Jim Morrison often ate as it reminded him of his home.

We love this ditty in the office, it’s lunch time now so we’re off to sample some of our home cured gravadlax.


If music be the food of Love: Champion Jack Dupree, Cabbage Greens

Champion Jack Dupree, an inspiring figure who sets up this friday for us in just the right tone.

If Music Be the Food of Love: What’s Cookin? by LRG

Conventional wisdom tells us not to talk with our mouth full, but no one ever said anything about pieces of food rapping along to some of the best culinary lines in hip-hop history. The latest short from production duo BankShot with music by DJ Nick Castle finds a stop-motion film that shows everything from pancakes and bacon to a green pepper with a platinum grill lip-synching along to classic lines from Biggie Smalls, Guru, Raekwon, Q-Tip, Action Bronson, Method Man and a whole lot more notable emcees. Dinner is served.

If music be the food of Love: Mr Scruff – Jazz Potato

Daaaammmmmn! It’s been a minute since I put some info up here. We’ve been super busy down here in the Borders catering for all manner of events, not to mention preparing our wedding brochure for 2011. We’ve also been rejigging our wine lists and sending our chefs out to all manner of private functions catering for some well heeled visitors to our lovely corner of the World.

I thought I’d get back into the swing of blogging by posting up a food related tune from the Tea loving DJ genius of Mr Scruff. Like us he brings plenty of flavour and is a purveyor of fine taste, and aural epicure… if you will allow me yet another bombast flourish.

If you are free later on in the month of October come and visit us at the Borders Wedding Show.

Later on in November I’ll be holding a wine tasting event at our Catering Unit so get in touch if that’s something your interested in. There will be the chance to buy some very fine Wine and Malt Whiskey and even a few Craft Ales! Watch this space.
