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 Bill:
Grimes and Bleachers collaborated on a song this year called “Entropy” that was featured on the most recent season of HBO’s Girls. It’s a really cool song, and it’s also the tune that Cindy picked this week to open the segment.
Bill’s Menu for “Entropy” by Grimes and Bleachers:
The word “entropy” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “a process of degradation or running down or a trend to disorder”. Bill has some thoughts on how the word relates to cooking. ”Entropy is the ultimate enemy of the chef. Chefs like things to be lined up, organized,” he says. The word makes him think of a salad he makes called the Rainbow Salad, which features over twenty ingredients arranged on a plate in a certain order. The customer then takes the ingredients themselves and mixes them up when the dish is served to them – a delicious entropy.
Bill’s Menu for Cindy:
Bill is having a pig roast down in the Strip District this Sunday, and he lays out a menu that’s both portable and delicious.
Cindy’s Pick for Bill’s Pig Roast Menu:
At Bill’s request, Cindy goes with a song that captures the spirit of the pig roast mixed with the vibes coming from the yoga going on simultaneously in the early morning: ”Follow You, Follow Me” – Genesis. ”I would think that if you were doing a yoga class and could smell a pig roast, it would sort of be like, ‘Ugh. That smells delicious, but it’s not exactly what you wanna think about when you’re doing the class.’” Cindy says, relating the situation to her own internal struggle between Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel.
