It is no question that 2016 has been a fantastic, I repeat, a fantastic year for music from literally the beginning of the year and trickling down to what’s soon to come during these final weeks. I am thoroughly impressed by what I’ve come across thus far and I could sit here and bask in all of this greatness, but I must say there’s one thing that I love a bit more than music and writing, and that’s devouring delicious foods; I think that’s something we can all agree on. I mean, totally indulging in fancy pictures of meals via instagram or whatever? C’mon! Who doesn’t love to eat right?
Throughout the years, the combination of food and music has proven to be the perfect pair. From metaphors to dance crazes, even a few of our favorite albums were inspired by some good ole’ grubbin’. It’s sort of a favorite pastime of mine. So, with far more artists choosing to embrace their culinary side outside of their musical career, I am LOVING it, okay!? Here’s a few of my favorite food moments from my faves:
The Powamekka Cafe
Sam Hansen and Take 3 Burgers decided to Honor Tupac’s 20th anniversary after his death by opening a one-night only pop up diner in California on September 13th. They gathered a few of Tupac’s actual recipes, and other’s that were inspired by his ideas, to put together a fire menu AND an art show while local artist performed the classics.
Action Bronson and his “Fuck, That’s Delicious” series.
As much as I enjoy hearing Bronson randomly rap about good eats, I find it even more entertaining to watch him enjoy them. From 2014 to earlier this year, Viceland presented a series where Acton Bronson and a few friends travel the world but, unlike your average Food Network television show where we watch people eat bugs and taste what seems like the same wine over and over, this is a pretty legit experience.
