Publisher Comments:

What happens when indie bands hit the road They get hungry!

Food writer Kara Zuaro knows a lot of musicians, and she's found they all share one obsession (besides music, of course): eating. Whether theyre on the tour bus reminiscing about meals past or at home in their own kitchens, theyve all got favorite recipes — and theyre willing to share. This uniquely irresistible cookbook collects contributions from more than 100 artists, including indie icons like the Violent Femmes, Belle and Sebastian, and They Might Be Giants; current favorites like Franz Ferdinand and My Morning Jacket; and up-and-coming acts like Catfish Haven and Voxtrot.

Some recipes are inspired by a particular song in the band's repertoire, others are taken from real-life experience. Each one bears the often quirky stamp of its source — while these are thoroughly tested, cook-from-me recipes, Zuaro has left the musicians wording and instructions intact, which makes for a collection that's as much fun to read as it is to use. For example, from Devendra Banhart's contribution:

RIGHT ON!!!!!!

here is my favorite recipe for:

AFRICANAS RICAS!

you shall require!

many bananas!

a box of graham crackers!!!

two eggs!!!

SOUR CREAM!!

HONEY!

You get the idea. Part indie music discovery guide, part foodie fantasy, and all fun, I Like Food, Food Tastes Good is a cookbook for anyone whose iPod is always on.

Review:

"When touring the country, there are only so many times one can stomach Taco Bell, Burger King and KFC; no one knows this better than touring musicians, as journalist Zuaro proves in this winning collection of on-tour favorites that run the gamut from simple (Death Cab for Cutie's Veggie Sausage and Peanut Butter Sandwich) to upscale (Patrick Phelan's Swanky Mac N Cheese, featuring lobster and white truffles) to no-scale (the secret to Strung Out's Rock "N" Ramen is using two Ramen flavors, not one). There's a band for just about every facet of the indie rock world, a diversity of taste reflected in recipes ranging from Battles's Roasted Bone Marrow 'Battles Style' to Camera Obscura's Vegetarian Paella. Naturally, there's a fair number of meals that won't sound like a good idea until after 3 a.m., such as a combination of onions, peppers, cheese, eggs and refried beans that Silkworm calls a Cheesy Sleazy. Covering all the bases, including drinks (They Might Be Giants offer up a Countrypolitan with cranberry and pomegranate juice), each recipe also includes comments from the submitting musicians-some more coherent than others (quoth NOFX's El Hefe, 'make some mac and cheese, then mix in a can of nelly chilly ... word')-making this a fun, faithful look at what rockers eat when they're not rocking out."
