If you can’t make it to Ginny’s on Sunday for the big game and are hosting at home, here’s a great playlist put together by DJ Qool Marv, one of our favorite Rooster DJs.

We’ve got a great mix with everything from the classics (Whitney & Michael) to a little New York/New Jersey Flavor (Frank  & Bruce)

Just under 3 hours of music, this can serve as your pre-game, during game and post-game atmosphere. If you start playing the mix around 3:30pm (EST), by the time you hear Frank Sinatra singing, it’s just about gametime.

 Cheers to your team and cheers to you!

Recipe RoundupThe Taste

The Taste’s Guest Mentor: Roy Choi

By Heeseung Kim | January 23, 2014

L.A. Son by Roy Choi

The theme on the fourth episode of The Taste is Street Food. It’s a genre of food that has rapidly gained prestige in the U.S. over the past few years. Street food in America is no longer restricted to hot dogs and halal carts (not that there’s anything wrong with those, especially when that halal cart is Famous Halal Guys on 53rd), and its more exciting iterations have become much beloved by eaters on the go. Tonight’s guest mentor is Roy Choi, who knows a thing or two about revolutionizing street food. Roy put his food truck, Kogi BBQ, on the streets of L.A. in 2008, serving $2 tacos with Korean-barbecued meat. People didn’t know what was happening at first, but they knew it was good. And then the chase for flavor was on. Read More

When people ask me about my background, I always describe myself as a Swede-iopian, part Swedish and part Ethiopian.  Having such a diverse background has influenced my life in so many ways, especially my cooking. I find myself drawn to the Swedish food traditions from my childhood and intrigued by the flavors of my birth country. Both are constantly combined in my cooking to make my own unique cuisine. Here are some recipes that are either Swedish, Ethiopian or Swede-iopian.

Ethiopian Style Beef Stir Fry

Maya’s Doro Wat

Ethiopian Shiro Chickpea flour Spread

Corn Pancakes with Chili Covered Gravlax

Pytt i Panna- Left over Breakfast Hash

Chocolate Cake with Candied Beets

Who To Know

Kris Yenbamroong, Chef/Owner of Night+Market in LA

For Kris Yenbamroong, following in the family business was easy. Convincing his parents of his restaurant concept was not.

The 31-year-old chef grew up helping out at Talésai, the restaurant his parents have owned and operated on L.A.’s Sunset Boulevard for the last 20 years. Proving the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, Kris’s father, Vilai, started the restaurant because he felt his mother made the best Thai food he had ever tasted. Which is pretty much how Kris decided to start Night+Market, located through a set of velvet curtains at the back of Talésai. Read More
