Sounds of the City

 
Our 2014 Awards will explore the enduring relationship between music and food.  So many of our finest chefs are inspired by music as they cook, and many speak of their “must-play” soundtrack in the kitchen.  A surprising number of chefs have crossed over from the world of music to food, and even more continue to express themselves as musicians during their precious downtime.  The careful decision of what music to play—or not to play—in the dining room is an essential part of the dining experience.  For all of these reasons, the worlds of music and food share a special bond in our culture.  This year’s Gala, Sounds of the City, will celebrate how each inspires and enriches the unique flavor of cities across the country.  From Nashville to New Orleans and Austin to Seattle, we look forward to highlighting chefs from America’s favorite musical cities to create a delicious double bill of music and food.
