Audible Edible: This Week on Heritage Radio Network, Music Meets Food, and Vice Versa

Today at 3 p.m. on his Heritage Radio Network program our photo editor Michael Harlan Turkell interviews Leigh Newman of Black Balloon Publishing and her author Michael Hearst, who, with the help of his band One Ring Zero, just published a cookbook/album called The Recipe Project. Hearst asked some of the country’s best chefs (Tom Colicchio, David Chang,Michael Symon, Aarón Sanchez, Chris Cosentino and Mario Batali, for starters) to send him a recipe, and suggest a style of music: Then he turned the cooking how-tos into songs.

Cook, listen, learn.

(One of the recipes in the book/songs on the album is actually Harlan Turkell’s: Tunisian Tinged (Chicken) Drumsticks set to Art Blakey’s “A Night in Tunisia.”

Also check out the most recent episode of the Matt & Rachel Show, where guest (and sandwich maker) Jenn de la Vega competed against the co-hosts in a game we like to call the Mind Kitchen. De la Vega and myself had to create a three course meal (in our minds) using only goat, raspberries, lentils, seaweed and lobster mushrooms. Good stuff; plus De La Vega filled us in on her plans for hoagie domination in years to come. (Hint: She wants to use mainly Filipino ingredients, as yet rarely seen on a sandwich.)
