Even if a band like, say, Pelican doesn't sound like my cup of tea, I'm happy to try their recipe for oatmeal cake. This may be a source of consternation for outlets like Spin magazine, who can be seen whining about the death of larger-than-life rock icons, something that seems to happen more or less annually.

cook better, trying more things and experimenting in the kitchen

He’s all over movies, and books, and art, and yes, both music and food probably beat out everything else. With health and budget goals in mind, he’s also been learning to cook better, trying more things and experimenting in the kitchen. Taking its title from punk rock pioneers The Descendents, I Like Food, Food Tastes Good is a fantastic compilation of recipes contributed by various bands.

1 large spanish onion (chopped), 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 pounds boneless wild boar meat (cut for stew), 1 can chopped tomatoes, 3 bay leaves, 1 cup red wine, 5 cloves garlic, crushed, 3 dried chili peppers (crushed), 1 cinnamon stick, 5 cloves, 3 sun-dried tomatoes.

272 pp. LESS reverent, but no less joyful, is the attitude of the rockers in Kara Zuaro’s cookbook for indie music fans, I Like Food, Food Tastes Good. Reading her table of contents is like scanning an iPod playlist: Death Cab for Cutie, Dr. Dog, Interpol, the Decemberists, Belle & Sebastian, My Morning Jacket, Franz Ferdinand and 100 others.

My old friends The Walkmen are in it too, which is fitting because they used to have recipe section on their web site. That’s where I first learned about their Foreign Chicken Dinner, the recipe they’ve contributed to the book.

What happens when indie bands hit the road They get hungry!

Food writer Kara Zuaro knows a lot of musicians, and she's found they all share one obsession (besides music, of course): eating. Whether theyre on the tour bus reminiscing about meals past or at home in their own kitchens, theyve all got favorite recipes -- and theyre willing to share. This uniquely irresistible cookbook collects contributions from more than 100 artists, including indie icons like the Violent Femmes, Belle & Sebastian, and They Might Be Giants; current favorites like Franz Ferdinand and My Morning Jacket; and up-and-coming acts like Catfish Haven and Voxtrot.

Some recipes are inspired by a particular song in the band's repertoire, others are taken from real-life experience. Each one bears the often quirky stamp of its source -- while these are thoroughly tested, cook-from-me recipes, Zuaro has left the musicians wording and instructions intact, which makes for a collection that's as much fun to read as it is to use. For example, from Devendra Banhart's contribution:

RIGHT ON!!!!!!here is my favorite recipe for: AFRICANAS RICAS! you shall require! many bananas! a box of graham crackers!!! two eggs!!! SOUR CREAM!! HONEY!

You get the idea. Part indie music discovery guide, part foodie fantasy, and all fun, I Like Food, Food Tastes Good is a cookbook for anyone whose iPod is always on.

Would only be better if there were pictures.
Xava
This book includes a comprehensive selection of vegetarian, flexitarian, vegan, and other dishes. I love the selection an creativity of recipes. This is defiantly a good buy if you love food just as much as music.

Also, seller was prompt and honest.

"I Like Food, Food Tastes Good: In the Kitchen with your Favorite Bands" is an indie-rock cookbook that features recipes from groups like the Violent Femmes, They Might Be Giants, Calexico and Death Cab For Cutie. (These four bands also happen to be the only contributors I'd heard of, but people much cooler than I will likely recognize the other musicians.) The 105 recipes in this book are varied and range from "Big Apple Quiche Muffins" in the "Breakfast" chapter to "Wild Boar Ragu" in the "Main Courses for Carnivores" chapter. I've had the book for a little over two weeks and have made an adapted version of the <a href="[...]">"Asian Stir-Fry for Vegetarians Who Hate Vegetables,"</a> the oatmeal cake pictured above, a pear and goat cheese panini, and eggplant parmesan, which I baked instead of frying as the recipe recommends. I was pleased with how these meals turned out and was especially grateful for their "easy on the effort" approach. Other recipes range from down-home comfort food like mac and cheese, to playfully titled drinks like "Patriot Act Mojitos," made with fresh mint, sparkling water, Cuban rum and sugar, among other things. For the health-conscious there are several 'healthy alternative' recipes, for instance, cookies made with powdered green tea and vegan chocolate chip cookies. And for the adventurous, the "Strawberry Pop Cake," which is made with strawberry soda and Jell-O, promises an interesting afternoon in the kitchen. Overall this is a good little cookbook with recipes that can be made when you're short on time and that can easily be modified to suit your tastes. It also begins to answer the question: What do musicians eat when they're on the road?

There are two things about this book that I wasn't too thrilled about. First, a handful of recipes are plagued by some of the worst writing I have ever seen - ever. I understand that the musicians who wrote them are artists and infinitely more hip than I will ever be, but I ask you, who publishes instructions like this: "...add a little bit of cream!! And STIRRRRRR!!!!... SIR LAWRENCE OF ARABIA!... THEN, put it on the frying pan!!!! let it get GOLDEN!!!" I mean, seriously, either this guy was on something or the recipe is so out-of-this-world that <a href="[...]" target="blank">T. E. Lawrence</a> came back from the dead to try it. (That's the only way I could get my head round the Arabia connection.) Thankfully recipes like this are few and far between, and the one quoted above, for "Africanitas Ricas," was the worst offender. The only other thing I wasn't too keen on was the inclusion of a recipe for a bologna sandwich, but if part of this book's purpose is bringing the artists to the people then I suppose it isn't so bad. "Rock can get complicated," the text reads, "but this sandwich isn't. Feed to those who are living the dream." I can dig that.

In addition to the aforementioned chapters, sections include: "Soups, Sides and Starters," "Sandwiches," "Main Courses for Vegetarians," "Drinks" and "Desserts." Whatever your musical tastes this book has something for everyone and is worth checking out. And if you happen to be an indie-music lover? All the better.

I naturally haven't tried every recipe in this book, but those that I have, I've enjoyed. Pear and brie sandwich was great, gourmet mac and cheese was too. I think my favorite thing so far though are the seven layer bars! They're incredibly sweet but suuuch a good dessert and really simple to throw together and shove in the oven. They really melt in your mouth (and all over your hands, haha) if you eat them warm too.

My complaints? Many of the dishes which have meat seem to rely on heat (as in spiciness, not physical temperature), and as a beginning cook who doesn't always know what to edit out to tone down spice without completely destroying the taste of the dish, I really would have liked to see more meat options with different flavor styles. Actually, I would have liked to see more meat in general--the book was very heavy in vegetarian fare, it seemed like. But I suppose that's what I get when I buy a cookbook featuring recipes from a bunch of bands who tend towards the vegetarian or vegan lifestyles.

What do our music stars eat? Good question. This book features over 100 recipes with clever notes about the food (and drink) preferences of some of our favorite cutting edge music types.

My Morning Jacket offers up their "You can care if ya wanna" sandwich. The Long Winters show us Alaska-style macaroni soup al carne. Mojave 3 has a nifty recipe for leek and potato soup.

I'll confess, I hadn't heard of half these bands, they are that trendy. The food is good and the notes are so precious. Worth checking out.
Although I have to confess that I've only made one recipe in this book since I got it several months back, its an incredibly entertaining read. Kara Zuaro is a really great writer and has clearly done her homework on the bands she includes here. The beauty of this collection is that it can be functional if you want it to be, but purely entertaining if you're not one that spends alot of time in the kitchen. It unfolds much like a series of shortstories or band interviews, allowing the reader a glimpse into any artist's idiosyncratic eating habits - usually much more interesting conversation than that of a band's obscure influences. On the other hand, if indie rock's not your bag, this would also fit nicely on the bookshelf next to your other treasured culinary guides.
