Snacky Tunes: Music is the Main Ingredient
Founded in 2009 by Darin and Greg Bresnitz, the podcast Snacky Tunes served as the first platform to discuss food and music, creating a space for chefs, restaurateurs, musicians, and bands to share their stories and creative processes.
In this unique flexibound book with playful graphic design and typography throughout, the Bresnitz brothers present Snacky Tunes – a collection of 77 all-new candid interviews from the world's most acclaimed chefs – showcasing these soul-sustaining exchanges, in which food and music seamlessly intertwine.
The chefs share personal stories about how music plays a pivotal role in their careers-shaping identities, igniting creativity, and influencing the restaurants they build and the food they serve. Organized alphabetically, individual entries are also accompanied by a previously unpublished recipe and custom playlist crafted by each chef, showcasing how a soundtrack both sets the tone for their kitchens, restaurants and fuels their creative process.
Includes forewords by acclaimed Food & Drinks editor of Esquire Jeff Gordinier and Grammy-nominated musician Jaime 'EL-P' Meline from Run the Jewels.
