LoveMusicLoveFood: The Rock Star Cookbook, is the brainchild of renowned food photographer Patrice De Villiers. Supported by celebrated music journalist Andrew Harrison and rock ‘n roll cook Sarah Muir it is a book that features over 60 musicians. Incorporating portraits of musicians with their favourite foods, each accompanied by a unique personalised recipe and exclusive interview, it is a project in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
So in choosing their favourite food, KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES frontman Aled Phillips championed Sushi, why exactly? As he puts it “Short of open-mouth fishing there’s nothing like sushi, is there? Healthy, good to share and it feels nice in the mouth. When we went to Japan, our label took us out to a very traditional restaurant, which was the first time I ate jellyfish. I can absolutely recommend it. The entire experience is really heightened in Japan.”
Why do rock bands love sushi so much? Well as Aled put it, it’s simple “Because we’re self-important and we think it’s dignified and gives us a sense of culture in the moral abyss that is the rock n’ roll world”.
