TIME to Sing For Your Supper: Feature Fridays

TIME One of the great things about the internet is stumbling upon something you never knew existed, which can also be one of the down sides.  This is one I’m not sure about, so I thought I’d share to get your opinion.  I love food and I appreciate many music genres, but this had me scratching my head a little.  TIME Video featured a new book and CD called The Recipe Project  by Brooklyn band One Ring Zero.  The band turned recipes from famous chefs into songs, featuring recipes from Mario Batali, Michael Symon, David Chang, John Beck, and others.
Yep, you heard me right, you can sing a recipe, each one produced to the tune of the chef’s choosing.  It certainly puts a whole new twist on ‘sing for your supper’.  Is this one of those times when the words don’t matter as long as it’s a catchy tune?  Is this something you could listen to long enough to memorize the recipes?  Interesting … sort of … I think.

What say you?

    This is an interesting idea. I don’t see it making me a better cook but I could see where it might help me to remember a recipe. At this stage, my memory can use all of the help it can get.

    Oh I’ve heard some of those on NPR. The one I heard was a punk version, and surprisingly catchy. It was an uncommon ingredient too, like brains.

    If anything helps me remember what I need at the market for the recipe I’m going to make, I’ll try it. I can hum my way thru the aisles.
