I’m making a pizza (not the one pictured, although DON’T I WISH!), and I don’t have any music playing. This is most unusual. As I wander over to the laptop to remedy this situation, I thought I’d ask those of you who are music lovers and foodies: do you always have music playing while you cook, sometimes, never, or what? How does your music enjoyment interact with and overlap with your food enjoyment?

Music and food: do they go together for you?

    My kids have me so desperate for quiet of any kind that my love of music has utterly disappeared. I suppose it’s sad, but I’ve reached a point where music just makes my nerves all jangly. I suppose that will change when the kids are older and actual exit the house once in a while without me two steps behind.

    I prefer the voices in my head.

    That’s what SHE… er, no, that doesn’t really work here, does it?

    When does that not work? That’s what he and she said! Viva la TWSS!

    iTunes playlists streamed from my desktop to the living room stereo via the “squeezebox classic” (slimdevices.com) — there will be no cooking without a soundtrack. Raphael (age 4) gets a steady diet of classic and progressive rock, funk, fusion, and whatever else is in the mix. A couple days ago he was singing along to Dream Theater. Good times!

    We made pizza tonight, too: smoked salmon, roasted corn, red onion, creme fraiche, and fresh mint. (Not entirely vegan, no. Don’t tell my colon.)

    Okay, that pizza looks like a stuffed spinach pizza from Eduardo’s on Dearborn in Chicago. I love that stuff!

    As for music, Tim’s really the cook in our house and the food’s always better when he picks the playlist!!
