What Music Do James Beard Nominated Chefs Like to Cook To?

The James Beard Awards (the “Oscars of the food world”) are tonight and last week Bon Appetit interviewed almost every single one of the nominated chefs, asking them a variety of interesting questions.  One of them being “What’s your favorite music to cook to?”  Here are their answers:

  • Michael Cimarusti, Los Angeles (Providence) - Levon Helm Electric Dirt
  • Cathal Armstrong, Alexandria VA (Restaurant Eve) - Silence of the Lambs SDTK
  • Johnny Monis, D.C. (Komi) - If I have the entire kitchen to myself, M Ward Transistor Radio. If I need to pick up the pace just a half step, Bright Eyes Digital Ash In a Digital Urn
  • Maricel Presilla, Hoboken NJ (Chucharamama) - Esteban Salas Cuban baroque music by Cathedral choir of my hometown, Santiago de Cuba, when I am creating new dishes; loud Brazilian Timbalada or fast-paced Vallenato from Colombia when I am wrapping tamales.
  • Krista Kern Desjarlais, Portland, ME (Bresca) - Lou Reed American Poet
  • Matt Jennings, Providence RI (La Laiterie) - It’s a tie between Sun Kil Moon’s Ghosts Of The Great Highway, The Pianist Soundtrack, and Bad Brain’s self-titled 1982 album.

RS Guide to Eating Nashville (via Jack White, KOL and more)

The latest issue of Rolling Stone (Best of Rock 2011) crowns Nashville, TN the best music scene in the country and part of it is the restaurants:

There are plenty of amazing cheap eats in town: [Black Keys’ Patrick] Carney suggests the fried avocado tacos at Mas Tacos, while Ke$ha recommends the meat and three platter at Arnold’s - “unless you don’t want to suffer a heart attack”. The Kings [of Leon’s] Nathan Followill swears by “the bison burger with truffle fries” at Burger Up.  Jack White and wife Karen Elson are brunch regulars at Marche; for fine dining, hit City House, a farm to table haunt that serves moonshine and hosts the Kings, Gillian Welch and Mumford & Sons. Taylor Swift prefers a lighter snack: “I love the Blue Chair granola yogurt parfait at Fido.”
