What was the food highlight of your year?
This is such a hard question, because I’ve eaten so much great food this year. Being from Asheville, NC, the food game is on a new level, and it takes a lot for other places to meet the bar. Even after mentioning that though, my food highlight of the year was homemade.
I recently had to cut dairy out of my diet which meant that I couldn’t eat pizza like a college slob anymore (because what is pizza without pounds of cheese). My girlfriend helped me in the woe process by convincing me that we could make homemade pizza. It ended up being delicious! We crammed so much stuff on there. I never would have thought that chorizo on pizza would be amazing!
What was the music highlight of your year?
I would say the music highlight of my year would be around the release of our new singles. My band worked really hard to write a string of songs that we would release on 3 different 7”s. It meant that we had to push ourselves and I was nervous about where our music would land after our first LP. Getting to play FEST 12 was a close 2nd though. It was quite possibly the best show I’ve ever played in my life.
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
I once did an acoustic show at Cook Out, a local fast food chain in the south - kind of like IN-N-OUT. It was myself and the glorious PJ BOND. If you’ve never eaten at Cook Out then you should and if you’ve never listened to PJ BOND then you definitely should.
