Music in the kitchen makes all the difference while preparing a meal. The right tunes, whether carefully chosen or played in a whim, add to the fun of cooking and the pride in the finished product. Here are a few of the different ways I enjoy music while cooking.
Internet Radio For Dishes From Around The World
A great way to enjoy music in the kitchen is to use Internet radio sites. I use Last Fm or Pandora to play wonderful music suited to the food I am cooking. It may be my imagination, but authentic music seems to bring out the flavors and scents of food! One of my favorite meal/food combos is some delicious Indian food and the warm sounds of Mohammed Rafi.
Compiling Your Own Kitchen Mixes
Another great way to spend time in the kitchen is with personalized mix cds or playlists. Kitchen and cooking themed songs are perfect for this project.
