Cooking with Music:  as far as I am concerned Music & Food are nourishment for the body and the soul. I cook every night, seldom do we have left overs for the next day.  I always like to make fresh good food. Needless to say, in the past two years we stopped going out to dinner, thanks to the Pandemic restrictions.

The joke used to be in our home when Diane cooked we went out to dinner. Now with that said she has cooked less than a handful of times in the past two years:)

So with that said when we bought our house there was an old Sony CD & Radio player. I had the radio playing and yes always on 91.5 FM the classical radio station.... well it clonked out about a year or so ago. No problem the CD player was working, here we got listening to Trumpet music by Sergei Nakariakov and Alison Balsam to name a few. Violin concertos by Paganini kept my cooking just fine. Then came the  new problem,  the CD player started acting up and skipping, anyway you get the idea. Ultimately getting to the point where it was painful to listen.

Hence a new Radio & CD player had to be installed, as things would have it the lights under the cabinet started to go on a fritz that had to be replaced as well.

There is a saying that great food without music is somehow incomplete and great music without the opportunity to eat well lacks something like the vitality of a perfect marriage.

Well now we have both, new sounds and new lights and not only am I thrilled but so is Diane, she does not have to hear the same CD's over and over:))

As far as I am concerned to have fine dining experience there is no room for error, just like in classical music there is no room for error, both chefs and conductors spend hours practicing and fine tuning their skills. Well it just so happens I like fine dining and good music to go with it while I prepare the meal and when we enjoy the meal.

This same philosophy I apply to my  Real Estate Practice too, I am a perfectionist and there is no room for error.

Endre, I agree with you, music and food do nourish the soul. I have music playing all the time. I just use Alexa and play whatever it is I want to hear at that moment. We cook a lot as well. It is often a joint venture. Oftentimes it is very simple and sometimes it is more elaborate. Last night it was a chicken and vegetable stir fry. I was so tired from showing homes all day so my husband cut everything up (veggies and chicken) and made some rice. You know the prep is the hardest part. I did the cooking. I would say, I got the good end of the stick but in the end, we both did since we got to eat dinner.

Like you, I love pairing food and music.  For example, if I'm having Italian food, then I'll play Italian music, etc.

Endre Barath, Jr. - What a thoughtful post with great ideas. My heart melts when I listen to Classical Music. I haven't had music in my house since I moved to Texas. I always felt something was missing and you just helped me to figure it out. Thank you.
