Cooking fish and listen to music - Ten fishes and ten records.
Often when Im coocking I listen to music and then a certain music, song or artists pops up in my mind. It starts as soon as I start handeling the ingredients fileting and bone plocking and so on until the dish is ready on the table with all that comes with it. Sometimes it amazes me how the songs just come to me, songs I have`nt heard in a long time or just listend to a couple of times.
I got an idea that I would make a list over 10 different kind of fish recipies that I have cooked and connect 10 different records to it. All just for fun! I highly recomend that you listen to the music while you cook or eat the food.
