|"Mmmmmm, Cake!"--The Beatles|
I love the idea. I think that music (and any art, to some extent) and good food are real comrades. To truly enjoy both, you have to appreciate what goes into creating it. You can see the artistry that leads from taking the raw ingredients and creating something amazing out of them. Both, when done right, can stir the senses and create an emotional experience.
In so many places, food and music are paired--bars and restaurants almost always have some sort of background music going on. Food is almost as integral a part of a music festival as the music. Unless there's a Phillies game on, we almost always have music playing while we eat dinner.
What about you? Does pairing music and food make sense to you?
In the article, they mention that Blair Warsham, chef and co-founder of "Covers" dinner and music program, pairs Bob Dylan with Aged Beef, Soy & Seaweed because
...the beef represents Dylan’s leathery exterior — the man is 70, after all — and the seaweed and soy provide heavy notes that pair well with his raspy voice.

How about the Beatles? Rufus Wainwright? Ben Folds? The Cranberries? (That should be too hard.) Louis Armstrong? The Quakertown Band?
Do you have any music/food pairings? Let me know--it could be fun!
