What was the food highlight of your year?
My personal food highlight is getting a chance to eat Rice and Bread co-founder and food editor Megan Cole's amazing meals almost every night. She loves cooking and makes some killer dishes. Just recently, she made a chicken mole that was to die for. Another food highlight was hearing about all of the different Hometown Scenes on Rice and Bread from musicians and foodies all over the world. Every time we talk to someone about their city's food scene, we immediately want to go there and check it out! Where's that transportation device when we need it!?
What was the music highlight of your year?
Getting a chance to see Rocket from the Crypt again at Calgary, AB's Sled Island Music Festival (and, for Megan, a chance to see them for the first time). One of rock and roll's all-time best bands, sounding just as good as they did when I saw them in the '90s. RFTC!
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
When Chef John Hurkes from Minneapolis, MN created The Slayer Pizza for our regular RIce and Bread feature, Perfect Pairings, it was like a perfect moment of heavy metal and heavy metal's signature dish (pizza). Cut into a pentagram with a crust made from communion wafers, this was one EVIL PIZZA!
