Friday mornings on WYEP, Chef Bill Fuller (Corporate Chef for big Burrito) joins Cindy Howes at 7:30am for Pairings! Bill & Cindy challenge each other to pair up your favorite music with matching menus. Let’s see what they came up with this week.
Listen to the audio:
Cindy’s Music Pick for the Week:
Cindy learned recently that her former high school band director, Mr. Michael Falker, had passed away. ”He was just this giant force,” Cindy says, “He was a big guy, he had big hair, he had a big heart, he had a big soul, big voice, and a big influence on everybody that he taught.” In honor of her teacher’s legacy, Cindy decided to go with an old Cab Calloway tune this week called “Minnie the Moocher”.
Bill Fuller’s Pick for “Minnie the Moocher”:
Bill sees a big old-fashioned jazz club, “Everybody’s sitting around at tables having just a big ol’ jazz-time dinner. It should be a big ol’ meal.” He immediately thinks that the biggest meal you could have in that situation would be a nice steak and some lobster tail – classic surf’n'turf. The sides, baked potato and asparagus, are big enough to have their own plate.
Bill’s Menu for Cindy:
Tomorrow is Bill’s wife’s birthday. She enjoys Indian food, particularly the Northern India fare with lots of curry. ”When we order takeout, she orders like way more things than two people could ever eat,” Bill says, “Mary, order as much Indian food as you want. I’ll eat it with you and will not complain.”
Cindy’s Music Pick For Bill’s Menu:
For a musical pick, Cindy went with a band with some Eastern influences, Cornershop. She played their song “Brimful of Asha”.
