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.

Cindy’s Music Pick for Bill:

Brandi Carlisle will be performing Monday night in Pittsburgh at Stage AE, so Cindy goes with a classic Bryan Adams song she covered on a previous EP called “Heaven”.

Bill’s Menu for “Heaven” by Brandi Carlisle:

Bill throws together a smaller menu for a long, romantic, summer day off that includes champagne (of course), camembert, salami, a baguette, and “a whole bunch of pitas”.

Champagne

Camembert

Salami

Baguette

A Whole Bunch of Pitas

Bill’s Menu for Cindy:

Bill explains that there are certain foods that often show up in “summer”-y meals – tomatoes, zucchinis, corn, peppers, etc. – he takes a few of those and turns them into his own delicious summer creation.

Bacon-Avocado-Tomato Sandwich

Zucchini-Corn-Pepper Pasta Salad

White Wine Spritzers

Cindy’s Music Pick for Bill’s “Summer” Menu:

Cindy picks a mellower version of “Down Under” from Man at Work by Colin Hay to go with Bill’s sunny menu.

The tune reminds Bill of the “ol’ Nashville music machine”, so he put together a delicious barbecue menu complete with a “whole hog barbecue”.

Cindy’s Music Pick for Bill’s “Tomato-fest” Menu:

Cindy went with a song as bright and sunny as the aforementioned fruit – “Tightrope” by Janelle Monae.
