Cindy’s Song Pick: Parliament “Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off The Sucker)

George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic is bringing the party to Pittsburgh this weekend and Cindy’s first song “Give up the Funk” is a great example of what one can expect from their show. While listening to the song Bill knows that there will be a lot of people on stage this weekend and it will be as much of a party on stage as off. For this menu he wanted to match the performance with the perfect fun party food…tacos and champagne.

Bills Menu Pairing: 

Assorted Mini Tacos

Champagne

 

Bill’s Menu Pick: For his menu pick this week Bill has Spanish food in mind. He imagines perhaps grabbing a meal on the Barcelona coast that features numerous cultural favorites and Spanish appetizers.

Tapas

Picon Cabrales

Calamari

Cindys Song Pairing: To match up with this menu Cindy makes her way to England with the song “Budapest” by George Ezra, who she feels has an old soul the match the the old soul feel of the menu.

Cindy’s Song Pick: Fall is certainly in the air and for this week’s pairing Cindy began making a playlist that reflected the changing weather, coats coming out of the closet, and eventual falling of the leaves. There were many great songs on the list and Cindy settled on Damien Jurado’s song “Silver Timothy” for this week’s pairing.

Bill’s Menu Pairing: “Silver Timothy” immediately brought the autumn sky to Bill’s mind. The way in which the stars seem to hang in the cold fall nights and shine in just such a way that is not present any other time of the year. In addition, Bill was brought back to a time of teen delinquency during Halloween when he participated in “corning” which is to throw corn at the windows of homes around town. Ultimately the song brought Bill back to a time when he and his childhood friends would socialize and often make food for themselves in the Fall around a campfire.

Hot Apple Cider

Mountain Pies

Hot Dogs over the Fire

Bills menu Pick:  Bill is currently participating in a program at his children’s school in which he come in and cooks for all the girls and boys with items that can be found in the garden. For his menu pick he draws influence from the meals he has made for the children which include, zucchini pancakes, chicken and tomato jam.

Grilled Chicken

Zucchini Pancakes

Pumpkin Beer

Cindy’s Song Pairing: Keeping with the theme of “cooking in the garden” Cindy picks a song by Ruth Moody, “The Garden” is a song that beautifully highlights Ruth’s incredible voice and matches well with the magic of cooking with home grown produce.

Cindy’s song pick: There are many musical performances in the city of Pittsburgh this weekend. Artists such as the Black Keys, Moby, Portugal. The Man. Another big name preforming on Sunday performs Sean Rowe, so Cindy’s song pick is “Downwind” by Sean Rowe.

 

Bills Menu Pairing: Listening to Sean Rowe puts Bill in the mind of a man who has either been in prison and escaped or perhaps is on the run after being framed for a crime he did not commit. It is a rough, gravely, gritty feeling that puts him in mind of a man who must steal from local fields and windows for sustenance, like a vagabond in the early part of the 21st century.

Stolen field Corn

Can of Beans

Dandilion Greens

Cooling Pie

Well Water

Bills Menu Pick:  For Bill’s menu, he draws inspiration from the gradually cooling weather we are experiencing, “It brings out the desire to cook at home, cook a warm hearty comfortable meal”. Bills picks are very much comfort food.

Home Baked Bread

Beef Brisket With Veggies

Egg Noodles

Red Wine

Cindy’s Song Pairing: To match such a hearty meal, Cindy searched for something equally as hearty, something that instills a sense of warmth and comfort, but also makes you patiently wait as one would have to for such a delicious meal.. Cindy Settled on Adele’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love”.

Adele “Make you Feel My Love”
