The FAMILY? Cast: Food And Music Is Life Yes? with Chef Josh K


Cheers! Chef JK here. I used to sing in Dogwood (the punk rock group) now I make music as Saint Didacus. This is The Punk Chef Podcast! I am a professional chef who does food and beverage pairings with all types of music (mostly punk/hardcore/metal, and I’m teaching my 3 kids to do the same! Why is music so important to the human existence? You know how food works, but do you know how to pair music with it? Do you cook or clean without music playing? Don’t do that. Let me help you find the right soundtrack for that. #punkchefpairings #foodandmusicislifeyes #SRRSS

My my my that is a LOT of bands and music!! For this episode, we mainly discuss The Get Up Kids– because they just toured on the 25th Anniversary of FOUR MINUTE MILE!!
