In this very special episode we check in on the global tour of our new book, Snacky Tunes: Music is the Main Ingredient, Chefs and Their Music. This tour stop was a part of WRLDCTY, a global city event bringing together thought leaders, urbanists and city lovers on a single digital platform for three days of conversations, connections and experiences broadcast from leading cities around the world. Joining us for a conversation about building restaurant audio signatures, and using music as an inspirational, creative force were two chefs featured in our book: Numra Siddiqui of Empress Market in London, and Chad Valencia of LASA in Los Angeles.

For the second half of the show, we revisit a March 2017 studio interview and performance by Kid Wave. The band’s founder and frontwoman, singer-songwriter Lea Emmery, talked about growing up in her native Sweden, finding musical success in London and what it’s like living in L.A. 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. Visit our site, for more info and tour dates.
