So, one would think that Heavy Metal musicians would be terrible cooks. This line of thinking is horrifically wrong. Considering that at various points in their careers most musicians end up on tight budgets, the ability to cook becomes something of a necessity. Thus, they tend to come up with interesting recipes of their own.

This leads to this book, which is basically a collection of recipes which aren't necessarily complicated to prepare, generally aren't expensive, and which don't use a lot of dishes. Some of the recipes could be described as "advanced bachelor cooking", but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The recipes do err on the side of spicy, but as someone who likes spicy food, I don't really have a problem with that.

This book has one minor problem that isn't exactly a problem. While some of the contributors have figured out the proportions of the ingredients in their recipes so they can be reasonably re-created by someone else, others aren't. Consequently, I've encountered a few recipes where I felt kind of lost without some idea what the end result should look like.

Otherwise, I'd say this is a really good cookbook for the aspiring home chef - particularly ones who like spice, like heavy metal, or both.

This book is going to be a phenomenon. It's got its own website, Facebook page, there is tweeting involved--it's a full-on rock-n-roll mega promotion for the November 16 release of this book. And you know what? It's worth it.

I had my doubts when I first got it, but I quickly figured out that this really is a mostly serious cookbook (some of these rockers are actually trained chefs and a whole lot of them are really passionate about great food), albeit with plenty of fun extras, trivia, and behind the scenes dish. There are some seriously amazing recipes in here, and they all come with some sort of story. Some of the recipes are there because they are easy to make on the road. Others are there because it's one of the things the guys miss about home when they are on tour. Some of the recipes are generations old. Others are straight off a Seven Eleven shelf. But pretty much all of them make you want to crank up the tunes and head for the kitchen.… (més)
