Best Songs to Cook To: A LoHud Listens Playlist from the Chefs of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week

0

We love cranking up the tunes in the kitchen, but sometimes we get stuck in a rut when it comes to the best songs to cook to. Well, who better to turn to for inspiration than chefs!

With Hudson Valley Restaurant Week coming up March 10-23, we asked the participating chefs to tell us their favorite songs for the kitchen. After all, they are busy getting ready for one of the busiest two weeks in their kitchens and surely in need of some good tunes!

Here’s a look at which chefs chose what songs. Web editor Chris Vaughan and food editor Liz Johnson put on their DJ hats, and put the songs together on our latest LoHud Listens Spotify playlist: Songs for Cooking, by Local Chefs.  We’ll add to the list as we get more input from Hudson Valley Restaurant Week chefs. Enjoy!
