    Odd question I know, but lately i've been listening to Ac/Dc when I'm cooking my lunch or my dinner - proper cooking now, not just "remove from freezer or fridge, place in microwave" :p

    It's really enjoyable, it helps with the timing of the different ingredients and really helps me unwind in the evenings too.

    I do. What I listen to is according to what I'm cooking.

    Usually jazz (Miles Davis, John Coltrane) or jazz influenced (Incognito, Sade).

    I find cooking relaxing so the music is usually relaxing, too. Of course the beer helps... :bassist:

    I do, but I usually listen to music when I'm puttering around the apartment anyway. For some reason I tend to cook to ska - early Aquabats, Dance Hall Crashers, Shaka Labbits (J-ska), and so on.

    Background music is always nice to have when preparing a meal.
  5. If I don't have music isn't playing around me, at any given point, something's wrong.
  6. I listen to music all the time, especially while cooking.

    Not really. I don't have a sound system in my kitchen and I can't put up the volume in the living room too much without disturbing my neighbors. Sometimes I have music on but the noise from the frying pans and other stuff buries the music pretty quickly...

    Music while BBQing is a different story. Put on a song with a big funky groove and I bet the meat will get extra tender... :)

    when i used to cook, i would put on komeda (the band, not the composer). mostly because the dog, cat and bird all liked it. me and the bird would get into dance-offs.

    the bird would usually win. she liked komeda and she's a good dancer.

    Yeah. I love music to cook by. Usually instrumental stuff, old jazz or 70's fusion.

    I listen to music whenever I do basically anything.

    I get into trouble when I cook though (seriously, I can burn water...) so music, the kitchen, and me do not mix.

    I always listen to Bootsy while cooking noodles all the time!
  13. Most certainly! Two of my favorite things together.
  14. I do if I am cooking a big meal (like Thanksgiving) or preparing for a party. I also like to listen to music while I am cleaning!
