Music and food go hand in hand. They are two of the simplest and finest pleasures in life. For many, they are both necessities; just as we can’t live without food, some of feel like we couldn’t live without music, either.

Even at times when you’re stuck at home, you can still enjoy the luxury of fine dining. Cook a fine meal, dim the lights, put on the perfect music, and in no time you’ll be making the best of your time inside and having yourself an evening to remember. What better way to get in a good mood than with comfort food and great jazz?

Here are several of our favourite dishes that are relatively easy to make at home. Plus, for each one we’ve recommended a record or two to pair with it. Brought to you with love from the kitchens of your hosts at JAZZ.FM91.

Bon appétit.
