Every once in awhile, something so fun, so groovy, so...well Ess Eff crops up we remember why we choose to live in our unique Fog City in the first place. Hailing from the Inner Sunset, home chefs and lovebirds Kasey and Matthew of "TK" connect food & music in funky Pairings Boxes that transcends the norm by being both a recipe of the month club featuring gourmet cooking and a vinyl record subscription service. Huh? Ok, here goes. Take notes: you and your fam get to discover rising artists, enjoy an original menu, familiarize yourself with unique aromatic spice ingredients which are vegetarian/vegan, allergen-free, and gluten-free, and turn on to a playlist of the best new music each and every month. A full supply list of this Pairings Box includes: 1-2 handpicked, premium ingredients, 3 simple seasonal recipes, Tasting Notes, plus a digital mixtape and a 7" vinyl. Yes, this is all true. Here's a peek inside a recent "Pizza Party" box: first up, the premium ingredients were fennel pollen and chili flakes, with recipes for Simple Tomato Sauce, Simple Tomato Pizza with Fennel Pollen, and a Clam, Pancetta & Arugula Pizza. Aji Amarillo peppers arrive waiting to be discovered. For the music component: the Turntable Kitchen featured artist / Musical Pairing was LOCAL NATIVES, with a great mix to go with the recipes, too. What we have discovered here: is Blue Apron's cool cousin from out of town, from outer space, really. Put it all together in your kitchen with the kiddos and be the hippest parent on the block. Or maybe this solar system. Concepts don't come much cooler than this, Yo.
Cost: Pairings Box subscription (1-Time or Recurring) $25/month
