We Don’t Like to Cook in Silence
How do you like to cook? Many of us don’t like to cook in silence. We rather enjoy some music, listen to news, or even a lecture and set our mood while cooking. We do have some folks who would rather cook their food in silence, but that is not me.
When I was in a hostel during my college days, my roommates and I have a collection of music just for cooking. We find a special connection in cooking and music. Cooking is no different from other task that demands attention and creativity for your meal to be yummy. Music comes into play for setting the mood right and inspired.
Music is not just inspiring while cooking but it can be exhilarating when you eat too. It is not strange to play good music with popular restaurants to set your mood, especially romantic mood. Some people would describe a good date as to good music, food and chat. Good foods and music is the opposite to forcing ourselves with junk foods in a hurry that is unhealthy and compromising.
Artistic people are into tattoo and music, heavy metal. Many Chefs are into listening heavy metal while cooking which otherwise can be stressful and repetitive, killing creativity and interest. They sync metal guitarist to their super fast knife cutting skills. Owners have no problem with their kitchen staffs listening to heavy metal so long as they serve the complimenting dishes.
