Keith Richards' Favorite Pre-Show Ritual Was to Eat a Shepherd's Pie

The Rolling Stones concert in Toronto promised to be a dazzling affair, the stage filled with fog machines, flame-throwers and a 100ft scaffold from which Mick Jagger would belt out the opening lines of Sympathy For The Devil.

There was just one problem. Some of the roadies who had set up this rock ’n’ roll spectacular had finished off all the shepherd’s pie in the backstage canteen.

Hardly a matter of life and death, you might think, but this was Keith Richards’ favourite pre-show treat and he flatly refused to go on until a replacement was cooked and brought to the venue.

Last Thursday, the Chicago Public Radio show Sound Opinions hosted a special fund-raising dinner at Nellcôte, the soon-to-open West Loop restaurant helmed by Old Town Social chef Jared Van Camp. Sound Opinions, the WBEZ rock ‘n’ roll talk show hosted by music critics Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis, invited Van Camp and Girl and the Goat chef Stephanie Izard to collaborate on a seven-course menu that reflected one of rock’s greatest rivalries, the Beatles versus the Rolling Stones.

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.
