Pairings with Chef Bill Fuller

June 26th, 2015 by Cindy H

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 Pick for Bill:

Tomorrow is WYEP’s Summer Music Festival in Schenley Plaza, a free family-friendly event going on all day in the community of Oakland.  Attendees can hear music form a slew of great artists, including the band Cindy picked for today – Kopecky.

Bill’s Menu for “Are You Listening” by Kopecky:

As the WYEP Summer Music Festival is taking place in Schenley Plaza, Bill brings up an eatery located there called Conflict Kitchen.  Conflict Kitchen features foods from countries with which the United States is in some sort of conflict – whether active or longstanding – and the restaurant is currently featuring Cuban cuisine.  As such, Chef Bill has prepared a menu of great Cuban food featuring Cuban sandwiches, a large salad, and Cuba Libres.

Cuban Sandwiches

Salad

Cuba Libre

Bill’s Menu for Cindy:

Bill has Asian food on the brain, so he has prepared Cindy a menu composed of Dandan noodles, pork dumplings, mapo tofu, pork belly, and Chongquing chicken.

Dandan Noodles

Pork Dumplings

Mapo Tofu

Szechuan Pork Belly

Chongqing Chicken

Cindy’s Music Pick for Bill’s Szechuan Menu:

Cindy tried to pick a track that could match the spiciness of Bill’s menu, so she went with “Terrible Love” by The National.

Cindy’s Music Pick:

Cindy had the Three Rivers Arts Festival on her mind this week, specifically Neko Case – who performs this Saturday on the main stage.  Cindy went with a tune from her 2002 Blacklisted album called “Deep Red Bells”.


Bill’s Menu for “Deep Red Bells” by Neko Case:

Bill, thinking specifically of a line from the song that goes: “tastes of being poor and small and popsicles in the summer”, presents a meal he cooked recently for an outdoor summer get-together.  The menu included deviled eggs, duck liver mousse, some pickled vegetables, picnic fried chicken, pulled pork, tomato jam, ice cream, and rhubarb strawberry pie – a wonderful selection of summer eats.

Potato Chip Deviled Eggs

Duck Liver Mousse

Picked Veggies

Picnic Fried Chicken

Pulled Pork

Tomato Jam

Grilled Bread

Ice Cream

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

 

Bill’s Menu for Cindy:

Bill puts together an easy menu that one can use effectively with the produce found in a Community Supported Agriculture box, a weekly delivery of local grown goods.

Salad w/ Pickled Onion

Grilled Chicken Sandwich w/ Spinach & Basil Aioli

Bell’s Oberon

 

Cindy’s Music Pick for Bill’s CSA Menu:

In relation to Bill’s fresh-grown menu, Cindy picks a perfectly-suited song from the Spinto Band called “The Living Things”.

Cindy’s Music Pick for Bill:

The Three Rivers Arts Festival kicks off tonight with a concert by Jenny Lewis on the main stage.  Cindy and Bill took a listen to “Head Underwater” from her latest solo album, The Voyager.

Bill’s Menu for “Head Underwater” by Jenny Lewis:

Bill puts together a nicely prepared picnic lunch to the arts festival in an effort to avoid the tempting deep-fried Oreos one is sure to find there.  Included  in the meal is a baguette with jam, quiche, fresh strawberries, and lemonade with gin.

Baguette w/ Jam

Ham and Asparagus Quiche

Fresh Strawberries

Lemonade & Gin

 

 

Bill’s Menu for Cindy:

“Every once in a while, you just wanna be bad,” Bill says.  He comes up with a meal that might not be the most healthy thing in the world; incorporating a fatty rib-eye steak garnished with onions and jalepenos, french fries with chipotle mayo, and a big ol’ Jack and Ginger.

Salt-crusted Rib-eye Steak

Onions & Jalepenos

French Fries

Chipotle Mayo

Jack & Ginger

 

 

Cindy’s Pick for Bill’s “Bad” Menu:

Cindy goes with a tune that embraces the same in-your-face attitude of Bill’s menu, “Who Are You” by The Who.
