We kick off Life is Beautiful month on Food is the New Rock w/ Top Chef’s… 

TOM COLICCHIO


We met Tom in Vegas last weekend at his restuarant Heritage Steak in the Mirage to talk music, guitars, and fishing with Perry Farrell.  We even got Tom to sing a bit of Three Dog Night and he admits that he probably did his best work in his 20s, just like most bands.  And he possibly has the best first concert we’ve ever heard on this podcast.

Match The Chef to Their Hand Picked Entrance Music

(If you listened to our podcast w/ Marcus Samulsson, that one should be super easy.)

A few weeks ago we talked to Philly Chef Jose Garces on the podcast… this week, we got a signed copy of his new cookbook in the mail complete with some music recs from the chef himself.

Dessert Island Discs: Michael Psilakis Likes it Loud & Fast

Welcome to the first installment of “Dessert Island Discs”, a new FitnR feature which has us asking chefs about the music in their restaurants and on their iPods. This week it’s Michael Psilakis, Executive Chef & Owner of Kefi, Fish Tag (NYC) & Eos (Miami) and the recently announced MP Tavern on Long Island.


Song (or album) we’re likely to hear playing in your restaurant? 

You will likely hear something by Led Zeppelin playing. I grew up listening to them. The other band you are likely to hear in the restaurant is AC/DC. I grew up listening to Greek music, and these two bands were my introduction to American music.

Song (or album) we’re likely to hear playing in your restaurant’s kitchen?

We play anything fast and hard, to motivate the kitchen. Metallica, Guns & Roses—pretty much anything that’s loud, fast, and makes you want to throw your fists up.

First love? Food or Music…

Food, in general, reminds me of bringing family together. My mother always used food as the most important vehicle for getting everyone into the same space to spend quality time with each other. She was really successful at it for over 20 years. Her meatballs were my first favorite food. She would always cook them at family dinners, and even today, the taste of Greek meatballs always brings me back to fond memories with family.

Musician you’d most like to cook for (alive or dead) and what would you serve them?

I would cook for Jim Morrison because I’ve always found his work to be deeply profound and poetic. If I had the chance, I would prepare a 10-course lamb tasting, using every part of the lamb in order to stimulate a philosophical conversation about the importance of the sacrifice an animal life.

5 Albums on Your Desert Island iPod

  • AC/DC “Back in Black” — This was the very first album I ever bought myself.
  • Led Zeppelin “Led Zeppelin I” — I love this album because of its bluesy, soulful, rock vibe. I can still listen to it every day and not get tired of it. It has everything you need.
  • Metallica “The Black Album” — Even though it’s played out, it’s still an oldie but goodie.
  • Guns N Roses — One of my favorite bands of all time, so any of their albums will do.
  • Nirvana “Nevermind” — This album was the beginning of my grunge years.
