I Like Food, Food Tastes Good: In the Kitchen with Your Favorite Bands by Kara Zuaro

What happens when indie bands hit the road They get hungry!

Food writer Kara Zuaro knows a lot of musicians, and she's found they all share one obsession (besides music, of course): eating. Whether theyre on the tour bus reminiscing about meals past or at home in their own kitchens, theyve all got favorite recipes — and theyre willing to share. This uniquely irresistible cookbook collects contributions from more than 100 artists, including indie icons like the Violent Femmes, Belle & Sebastian, and They Might Be Giants; current favorites like Franz Ferdinand and My Morning Jacket; and up-and-coming acts like Catfish Haven and Voxtrot.

Some recipes are inspired by a particular song in the band's repertoire, others are taken from real-life experience. Each one bears the often quirky stamp of its source — while these are thoroughly tested, cook-from-me recipes, Zuaro has left the musicians wording and instructions intact, which makes for a collection that's as much fun to read as it is to use. For example, from Devendra Banhart's contribution:

RIGHT ON!!!!!!
here is my favorite recipe for:
AFRICANAS RICAS!
you shall require!
many bananas!
a box of graham crackers!!!
two eggs!!!
SOUR CREAM!!
HONEY!

You get the idea. Part indie music discovery guide, part foodie fantasy, and all fun, I Like Food, Food Tastes Good is a cookbook for anyone whose iPod is always on.
