Ask a Chef: What Music Is Playing in Your Kitchen?

We are really freaking excited for the first annual Bottle Rock Festival, coming to Napa Valley this week. Featuring an absolutely stellar lineup of musical acts (have I mentioned that The Black Keys are one of my favorite things?) and an equally kick-ass roster of food and drink, Bottle Rock is bringing together the best of the music and Bay Area food worlds. For this special edition of Ask a Chef, we asked some chefs who will be at the festival what tunes get them going in the kitchen. More

7 Great Bites and Sips From Newport Folk Festival 2012

This weekend, we jammed out at the Newport Folk Festival. And in between soaking up Alabama Shakes and Jackson Browne (er, plus 25 gallons of rainwater), we searched for some serious food. Choosing lunch was almost as stressful as realizing we couldn't be at three stages at once (The Head and the Heart! vs Of Monsters and Men! vs Tune-Yards!)—but such challenges are ones we'll gladly take on.

'Our Evening Began in Peter Sichel's Comfortable Study in His New York Townhouse'

If you've ever wondered about the origin of the wine-talk sample in the Beastie Boys' "Blue Nun" (Check Your Head), look no further. It's from an audio guide to wine titled On Wine: How to Select and Serve by wine merchant Peter M.F. Sichel, who was responsible for popularizing the Blue Nun wine brand throughout the world. Sichel tells the Beastie Boys story in a video after the jump. More

Snapshots from the Sweetlife Food and Music Festival

We had a blast over the weekend feeding muffulettas to a bunch of happy people at the Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. We drove down in the Salumeria Biellese truck with all of our muffuletta supplies: sopressata, capicola, mortadella, provolone, olive salad (eight gallons of it!) and 250 round loaves of bread from Parisi Bakery, fresh-baked just before our 4 a.m. departure Saturday morning (that fresh). Here are some snapshots from the festival, including close-ups of the mighty muffuletta. More

'Pizza Slice,' Sung to the Tune of Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face'

An email from a BRILLIANT Slice'r: "Singing along to Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face' one evening while making pizza I absentmindedly changed the chorus to 'Pizza Face.' The image brought me up short with disgust, as you can imagine, but there seemed potential in the idea of a pizza parody of the song.... Here it is; I hope you like it. —drbubbles" More

Best Food You've Had at a Music Festival?

Earlier today we brought you a photo gallery of all the bites we had at Outside Lands in San Francisco over the weekend. But the weekend prior to that, we were actually jamming at Lollapalooza. Though people don't attend the festival for the food, the selections are getting better and better. Chicago chef Graham Elliot, who also just opened Grahamwich, was in charge of the festival's Chow Town for the second year in a row. More

What to Eat at Coachella this Weekend

While most people are busy sorting through the schedule of set times for Coachella, the three-day musical festivalarama that kicks off tomorrow, Zach Brooks of Food is the New Rock (and Midtown Lunch of course!) has a complete list of food vendors for you to hit up here. "Kogi, Coolahus, crab fries, doughnuts, egg rolls and a corn dog have already been penciled in... with a little music squeezed in, I suppose," he says. More
