Founded in 2009 by Darin and Greg Bresnitz, the podcast Snacky Tunes served as the first platform to discuss food and music, creating a space for chefs, restaurateurs, musicians, and bands to share their stories and creative processes.
The Bresnitz brothers now present Snacky Tunes — a collection of 77 all-new candid interviews from the world's most acclaimed chefs — showcasing these soul-sustaining exchanges, in which food and music seamlessly intertwine.
The chefs share personal stories about how music plays a pivotal role in their careers-shaping identities, igniting creativity, and influencing the restaurants they build and the food they serve. Organized alphabetically, individual entries are also accompanied by a previously unpublished recipe and custom playlist crafted by each chef, showcasing how a soundtrack both sets the tone for their kitchens, restaurants and fuels their creative process.
Forwards by acclaimed Food & Drinks editor of Esquire Jeff Gordinier and Grammy-nominated musician Jaime 'EL-P' Meline from Run the Jewels.
