I just received the November Pairings box from Turntable Kitchen!
One of my favorite things about subscription service Turntable Kitchen is access to all of the music and mixtapes online since you’ve been a subscriber. I can access all the curated mixes and download zipfiles so I can enjoy this great music all the time. Matthew, the music editor of Turntable Kitchen does a fantastic job of finding music that pairs perfectly with an evening of fine dining, or just for putting you in a great mood.
This month, the November Pairings box theme was: The Small Bites Box
Here’s what came in my Turntable Kitchen November Pairings Box:
Turntable Kitchen: November Small Bites Box
Hand-Pressed Record: Daniel Wilson, Killed Ya
This mix was awesome! I wasn’t expecting it to be so eclectic and jazzy since most other Turntable Mixes are smooth and sweet. Here’s the description from Turntable:
“It’s an over-before-ya-know-it mix of paranoia-fueled voodoo, soul-steeped disco, and catchy garage pop.”
My record is hand-labeled and says it is #165 out of 375. That’s not too many that they make each month.
Premium Ingredient: Pink Peppercorns. As always, the premium ingredient came in an awesome canvas bag which I love to reuse. Pink peppercorns are bright pink and look like small berries. Turntable Kitchen says they aren’t actually pepper, but a member of the cashew family.
Recipes: Turntable Kitchen comes with three recipes to experiment with your month’s premium ingredient.
- Agave-Glazed Spare Ribs with Rosemary and Pink Peppercorns
- Toasted Brioche with Roasted Grapes, Burrata, and Pink Peppercorns
- Oysters with Lime Granita and Pink Peppercorns
My pairings box also includes a card with instructions on how to download this month’s digital mixtape.
I can’t wait to spend a night cooking these and spinning some great tunes, courtesy of Turntable Kitchen!
