Food and Music #1

I like to learn how to cook things well, and, an that note, learn things in-depth (I will have to revisit the Good Eats rice episodes (Power to the Pilaf, Do the Rice Thing, and American Classics III: Creole in a Bowl!)

Thanks to Gordon Ramsay and the BBC for the help (videos below)!

Rose gold Jesus piece with the brown ice
Eatin’ good: vegetarian with the brown rice

Kanye West on “Don’t Like”


Rice under black beans

Chance the Rapper on “Blessings (Reprise)”


Mama used to cook red beans and rice
Now it’s Denny’s, 4 in the morning, spoil your appetite

Kanye again on “No More Parties In LA”
