Turntable Kitchen is a wonderful, well-recognized blog that blends new, trendy ideas in both food and music. Kasey runs the kitchen on the food end of the site, while Matthew handles everything music. One of the most recent dishes to hit the blog waves is Kasey’s recipe for clams with mirin, lime and cucumber.

This dish combines the bright acidity of fresh lime juice and mirin rice wine with aromatics like lemongrass, scallions and jalapeño. Refreshing bits of cucumber provide crunch against the briny pop of the clams. And fresh basil and cilantro add a fresh flavor and fragrance to the warm, flavor-rich broth. 

But the delicious, inspired idea doesn’t stop there. This recipe wouldn’t have much place on Turntable Kitchen without some music to go with it, right? That’s why Matthew recommends the song Myth by a band called Geographer, for its thoughtfully polished and layered sound similar to the layers of flavor in Kasey’s recipe. 

Something tells me that a Turntable Kitchen-themed dinner party might just be a lot of fun. Why not compile a few of Kasey’s recipes, put together a playlist of songs to pair with the dishes and invite a few friends over? Turntable Thursdays, perhaps? Sounds like music to my ears and taste buds!
