A few months ago I mentioned the launch of my friend (and excellent cook) Laura’s new food blog, Eating the Beats. Her blog features recipes inspired by the music that she loves. It’s a lot of fun to read and I think the surest way out of a food rut is to let something not related to food inspire your eating. I love reading her blog to get new ideas and find out about new bands! So I was very pleased when she invited me to work on a post with her inspired by the French synth-pop band Karaocake. Reflecting on the music, which is sweet, poppy, and Frenchie as well as infused with a heavy dose of melancholy and nostalgia we thought, what better than madeleines? And perhaps, carrot cake madeleines? We invited our friend Dominick Mastrangelo to take pictures and voila! Read the results on Eating the Beats here. Et bon appetit!
