What was the food highlight of your year?
I think my meal at Atera is the hightlight although I spent a few weeks in Maine this Summer and the produce there was amazing. As far as a bottle, I was quite impressed with the sparkling water selection at Bazaar by Jose Andres.
What was the music highlight of your year?
I have to say getting back together for some recording and a few shows with Texas Is The Reason is it. It even inspired us to play a few more shows in 2013. Our “secret” show at Saint Vitus was one of my favorite shows I ever played.
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
There was a point where I was playing in a band and I quit because I wanted to just work in a kitchen. It wasn’t only until recently that I accepted that I actually am a chef and a musician. As much as I always say I like the food more, it seems that I can never stay away from playing some music with friends. I feel really lucky to be able to do both.
