Cook Music Cook Food – review and give away!

What’s Cookin’ is the fab new album from Reole and it’s a mix of funk, jazz and soul, perfect music for cooking to.

I love to have the music playing while I cook and I’ll listen to whatever takes my fancy. I was excited to receive this CD to see how it would inspire me in the kitchen and it didn’t disappoint. Reole started his musical life playing in Mardi Gras parades and is an American Football fan. About his last album, Here Comes the Drums, Reole says he feels music as music is, ‘you can’t push it on to anyone,you either like it or you don’t but there is something on here for everyone.’

Another exciting thing about the new CD, due for release on 4th December, is that it comes with it’s own cookbook. With fantastic recipes such as gris-gris jerk chicken with beans and coconut rice, Jambalaya fire and Creole slow cooked lamb and sweet potato with minty cabbage pesto.

The jerk chicken was very tasty, I added my own yoghurt and mint sauce for a little coolness.

My cabbage and mint pesto which goes lovely with lamb.

The Cd features a mixture of songs and instrumental pieces, they are all uplifting. I’ll definitely be having this on in my kitchen a lot.

I have two copies of the CD with cookbook up for grabs in my give away, so if you fancy a bit of spice in your kitchen just fill in the widget.

    What I listen to varies! If I'm on my own it's usually Queen, if I'm in the kitchen with family then often a CD of a musical – it's Joseph atm!
