When you spend the majority of your time headbanging, you’re bound to work up an appetite. Luckily, Chef John Hurkes of Minneapolis’ The Bulldog Northeast has cooked up some ingenious metal-inspired recipes:
Yeah, you read that right, a communion wafer crust. The recipes come from a series by Rice and Bread called Perfect Pairings in which food is paired with classic metal albums.
Chef John says he was inspired when he saw some metal-inspired burgers at Chicago’s Kuma’s Corner. As far as the inspiration for each individual dish:
“It has a lot to do with the ingredients and how they relate to the music itself; where the ingredients are from, their origins, and connecting them with the song titles and the lyrics, and then just bringing it all together and making it as metal as possible”
These look amazing, but Chef John explains the recipes are currently still top secret. They may plan on releasing a cookbook including these and other badass recipes, but until then we’ll just have to settle for the sweet sweet pictures.
