Stunning, unexpected and groundbreaking, this compelling book will captivate all who look through its pages. There are two things that could make the world a better place – food and music – and this exclusive project combines them with a unique collection of portraits of musicians with their favourite food or drink. The original, dramatic portraits command attention and the complex creativity of each is absorbing. Marrying musical talent with passion for food, each portrait is accompanied by an interview with the artist, and for each major artist a personalised recipe has been created.
Over 60 musicians are featured, each driven by their support for Teenage Cancer Trust and their wish to collaborate on this fascinating book. From rock legends to emerging artists, an incredible spectrum of musicians reveal their passionate engagement with a favourite – and often unexpected – food. Who would have predicted Sophie Ellis Bextor’s obsession with fish and chips? Or Siouxsie Sioux’ with beans on toast? For Brandon Flowers it is Pastor Tacos and Elotes while Alex Kapranos has a passion for beetroot and Noel Gallagher for Yorkshire tea!
As Heston Blumenthal says in his Foreword, other people’s food memories are fascinating, not least the food nostalgia expressed here by icons of the contemporary music world. Glamorous, insightful and addictive, this book makes connections between the worlds of music, food and photography and provides a true feast for the eye.
