We’re revisiting stops on our recently wrapped 2020 virtual tour in support of our new book, Snacky Tunes: Music is the Main Ingredient, Chefs and Their Music. This pandemic plagued year has certainly reminded us of the importance of maintaining perseverance and hope. No other city is more imbued with that never-out-of-the-fight spirit than New Orleans, and it seemed fitting to conclude our tour there. Sitting down with us for a poignant discussion on music and food being beacons of light during difficult times were Chef Nina Compton of Compere Lapin and Bywater American Bistro; Ben Jaffe, Creative Director of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band; and Jacqueline Blanchard, owner of Coutelier NOLA who also co-hosted the event.

Snacky Tunes: Music is the Main Ingredient, Chefs and Their Music (Phaidon), is now on shelves at bookstores around the world. It features 77 of the world’s top chefs who share personal stories of how music has been an important, integral force in their lives. The chefs also give personal recipes and curated playlists too. It’s an anthology of memories, meals and mixtapes. Pick up your copy by ordering directly from Phaidon, or by visiting your local independent bookstore.
