Good Morning, Here Is Some ‘Coffee’ From Our New Favorite Band Sylvan Esso

You like Feist? You like beats? You like coffee?
Mar 26, 2014 8:30 am

Amelia Meath, of Vermont folk trip Mountain Man, and producer Nick Sanborn (called Made of Oak when playing on stages) formed a side project called Sylvan Esso. Their standout single — “Coffee” — doesn’t really have much to do with Kalita or Aeropress. But who cares, it’s a pretty (and pretty interesting) mashup of styles and what we are listening to this morning.

Video: Justin Warner Shows Us Why He’s Still On Top Of The Chef-Rap Game

With shouts to the cronut, Morton Salt girl
Feb 3, 2014 11:00 am

Justin Warner is the winner of the competition cooking/media show The Next Food Network Star and is working on developing a series that we hope incorporates his rapping skills.

Singer Kelis Gets Into The Asian Sauce Game

Avoids the obvious dairy-forward foodstuff
Nov 19, 2013 12:00 pm

During our annual DJ Week, we like to ask members of the turntable generation if they have any friends in music who have particular skills in the kitchen. When we posed the question to DJ M.O.S., he did not flinch. “Kelis is an amazing cook. She actually went to culinary school and can seriously throw down,” he said in a 2011 interview. More on Kelis' new product line, right this way.

Superstar DJ Sander van Doorn is consistently ranked among the top DJs in the world. From his award-winning debut album, Supernaturalistic, to the never-ending global EDM festivals he headlines, it's clear that van Doorn's career knows no boundaries.

Ludo Lefebvre Will Play His Vulgar French Rap Music, Thank You Very Much

At Trois Mec, the chef plugs the jukebox
Jul 2, 2013 12:01 pm

“I want to play the music that I play in my house, and if you come to my house, I put on rap. And it’s French rap.” I’ve called Los Angeles chef Ludo Lefebvre to not necessarily talk about Trois Mec, his new Hancock Park restaurant with the guys from Animal. I’ve not dined there, but I've read some pretty promising reviews. I've also read that the music is totally nasty. Ludo fills us in.
