Food That Rocks

Favorite Recipes from the World of Music

By Margie Lapanja

Everybody loves food. Everybody loves music. Put the two together and you have a sumptuous, one-of-a kind cookbook guaranteed to stir the senses and tickle the taste buds. 'Kitchen Goddess' Margie Lapanja and rocker Cindy Coverdale have cooked up sheer delight where everybody gets a front row seat, a backstage pass, and dinner (actual interviews) with the band.

Cleverly organized like a concert, Lapanja and Coverdale start with 'Opening Acts.' Taste Patti LaBelle's 'Potato Salad' and David Coverdale's 'Soulful Shrimp Soup' before trying the 'Amped-up Appetizers.' 'Electrifying Entrees' zing the page with Ted Nugent's 'Bubble Bean Piranha' la Colorado Moose.' Desserts worthy of a standing ovation -- such as Sarah McLachlan's 'Current Cake' -- also belt out from these pages.

Guaranteed to satisfy every taste, Food That Rocks also spotlights musician-owned restaurants, musical cookbooks, and songs about food, writers who rock, and chefs who jam. Meet the real Rolling Stone's Ben Fong Torres of Almost Famous, and Rock Bottom Remainders literary band of Amy Tan and Stephen King, led by Kathy Goldmark. Food That Rocks heats up the kitchen with red-hot rock, outstanding food, and recipes you will not find anywhere else.

Foodie-author Margie Lapanja and Cindy Coverdale, wife of David Coverdale, bring backstage access right up to the kitchen table with a smorgasbord of music stars and their favorite recipes: Patti LaBelle, Shania Twain, Sarah McLachlan, Ted Nugent, Bob Weir, Joe Satriani, Aerosmith, Jennifer Lopez, and more. More than just a cookbook, these stories about the stars and their recipes pepper the pages and keep reading red hot.
