The Perfect Playlist to Make Cooking Fun

“A restaurant without a soundtrack isn’t one worth being in, and a silent kitchen isn’t one worth cooking in.” Alex Delany

Cooking is just more fun when you’re listening to something good. It’s science!

With that theory in mind, the WF team set out to bring you the ideal cooking playlist. We reached out to a trained chef, a kitchen specialist & cooking expert for multi-genre, multi-generational choices for the best songs and albums to cook to.

What we got was a mixtape so perfect for kitchen listening you’ll want to keep it on all the time, in every room of the house. We happen to think it would make a mighty fine soundtrack for dining, as well as food preparation.
