Food is the New Rock

Ep 121 - Punk rocker turned chef Terri Wahl joins us for year's Thanksgiving episode.  She tells us about how her band The Red Aunts got wined and dined by Epitaph, and how she left it all behind to open Auntie Em's Kitchen in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles.  We talk Thanksgiving too, including the perfect music to listen to while you cook (which we posted as a Spotify playlist on www.foodisthenewrock.com)  

Her cookbook "The Auntie Em's Cookbook: A Musician's Guide to Breakfast and Brunch" is out now (and would make the perfect holiday gift- hint hint.)

Ep. 120 - On November 9th we helped Castle Gourmet and Mack Sennett Studios put on the Eastside Food Festival here in Los Angeles to benefit PATH. There was great food, beer and wine from Angel City Beer and Silverlake Wine, and Zach podcasted live on stage in front of a standing room only crowd w/ Stella Mozgawa from the L.A. band Warpaint, Morgan Kibby from M83 and The White Sea, chefs Jessica Koslow from Sqirl, Ari Taymor from Alma, Craig Thornton from Wolvesmouth, and special guest host Evan Kleiman from Good Food on KCRW.  We recorded the talk and are releasing as this week's podcast.  Enjoy!

Ep. 119 - This week we bring you the final episode recorded at Life is Beautiful is Las Vegas. You may know our guest this week from Top Chef Masters, his New York restaurant Barbuto, or his famous roasted chicken.  But what many people may not know about Jonathan Waxman (the Obi Won Kenobi of the food world) is that he had a whole life as a professional trombone player before becoming a chef.  He tells us about seeing Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding in concert together, and the band he was in with Lenny Pickett called Lynks.  Plus at the end we talk about Music City Eats, the festival he started with the guys from Kings of Leon.  

This week's podcast is sponsored by our friends at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, who made it possible for us to go to Life is Beautiful this year and record all these great episodes.

Ep. 118 - This week's episode is a two for one special! Recorded at the Life is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, we crossed a major guest off the bucket list in the first half of the podcast when we got to sit down with Questlove, the legendary drummer of The Roots.  We talked about the food he ate growing up, cereal (a lot about cereal, actually) and how he's turned his New York City apartment into a food salon.  In the second half of the episode our guest is Gus from the UK band Alt-J.  We talked to him about American junk food, his secret restaurant notebook, and the magic of a chip butty (naturally.)  

This week's podcast is brought to you by The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas ( http://www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com), who made it possible for us to go to Life is Beautiful and record these podcasts.  And UE Boom, who just comissioned us to create a series of posts featuring 5 music inspired family meal recipes from 5 amazing Los Angeles chefs. The first, featuring Chef Jeremy Fox from Rustic Canyon, is up now at http://www.makemusicsocial.com
