Perseus Publishing
The Recipe Project (book/cd package) features 10 recipes by celebrity chefs transformed?word for word?into singable, danceable, riotously delightful songs. Think: 100 Sweet Tomatoes by Mario Batali sung as whimsical Italian melody. Or Creamless Creamed Corn by Tom Colicchio sung as a classic rock tune.

The book itself contains recipes by the same chefs (Mario Batali, David Chang, Michael Symon, Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Tom Colicchio and more) as well interviews with the culinary stars, restaurant playlists, and essays by acclaimed food writers such as Melissa Clark, JJ Goode, Christine Muhlke, Michael Harlan Turkell and John T. Edge.

Black Balloon Publishing marries traditional story-telling with high-tech. The Recipe Project comes with a free app that finds recipes so easy you could sing them, as well as a book excerpt, and an animated spinning LP. The Recipe Project’s stop motion video features dancing pasta, flirtatious garlic, and a 59-second ode to the book/cd.

Lighthearted essays about food and music. Intimate interviews with celeb chefs. Recipes of celeb chefs sung as songs. CD included.
