For me, the holy trinity is cooking, a glass of wine & some good music. I typically listen to blues/rock when cooking. Susan Tedeschi, Jackie Greene, Springsteen, Coltrane, Robert Cray Band. Sometimes some Aretha Franklin, Prince, Earth, Wind & Fire, etc. And occasionally some old school rap like Eric B & Rakim, Dr. Dre & Snoop, Sugarhill Gang, etc.
What music inspires you in the kitchen?
Also, know any songs about food? Here's a link to a wacky list of 500 food songs. Interesting how many are by Jimmy Buffett (margaritaville, cheeseburger in paradise, I Wil Play For Gumbo, I Wish Lunch Would Last Forever, etc. - ugh) & funny enough Adam Sandler (The Thanksgiving Song, Lunch Lady Land & Food Innuendo Guy).
