In Tune With Dinner

There is something to be said about the feeling you get when you are in the kitchen, cooking, with music on. I’m pretty new to experimenting in the kitchen and my Type-A personality amplifies the anxiety of trying to get the recipe to exactly as it should be. Music helps counter this. I have many playlists to choose from on my personal Spotify account that I can peruse to fit my mood. Most are hours long.

Below are some staples I have from my dinner party playlist that I have playing while I’m cooking and while guests are over. All are easy-listening and don’t take to much away from the conversation and the dinner itself.
