|A picture of me with southern food. Now there's something you don't see everyday.|
I have a cooking playlist on my Mac. I switch it up depending on what I'm cooking. If it's southern, I'm "Patsy-Clining" it all the way through. Holiday meal? Christmas music. If you haven't ever done this, I would encourage you to start. It is a great tool in the craft of cooking. In my mind it ranks right up there with tempering and tasting. It energizes you and sometimes makes you feel more confident if you're trying a new recipe. It's the background music that ends in a drumroll to a perfect dish.
If you don't already have one, I encourage a SPOTIFY account. It's a free app download for any techno device. You can listen to any music you want for free. You just can't "take it with you," i.e. make a cd. It's ITunes minus the $.99. You can follow social media friends to see what they listen to or, share your favorite songs with the social media world. Feel free to look me up if you decide on one.
I love to cook. I love music. Musical cooking, genius.
