We’re always inspired by the smart food and music pairings made by Kasey and Matthew Hickey from Turntable Kitchen (and are especially fans of their new Turntable Kitchen Pairings Box — what could be better?). Take a listen to their Playlist—and a look at the workspace in their San Francisco apartment—in our latest post.
What do you listen to while you work? Matthew: That is a hard question for me to answer, because I listen to a really diverse range of music while working: lo-fi garage rock, French chanson, hip hop, 60′s Motown, indie rock, electronica, chillwave, cumbia, Argentinian folklorica, classic rock, and really just about anything else I get my hands on. I love discovering new music and that includes delving into genres that aren’t really contemporary. It just depends on my mood and what I’m doing. I think the diversity of our Musical Pairings speaks to the wide range of music we listen to while working in the kitchen. But to be honest, when I’m writing a post or working on stuff for the box (as opposed to when we are actually working in the kitchen), I’ll listen to an even wider range of music including stuff that just doesn’t create the right ambiance for a meal. Kasey: I listen to a lot of Pandora while I work mostly because, unlike Matt, I don’t collect music (I just mooch off of him!) I have a couple of favorite channels, based on some of my favorite artists – The Cults, Florence and the Machine, Beirut, MIA (when I need to wake up!), Sufjan Stevens, Feist, and Bon Iver.
