System of a (close) Down. A Kitchen Musical.

Most chefs will have a particular favourite play list for when they are at work. It can be a fascinating insight into the culture of a kitchen.

Me I don’t have one. It’s not that I’m not interested in music. Quite the opposite in fact. I love music. All kinds.

L puts on Blondie you bet I’m hitting One Way or Another word for word. C likes a bit of Elvis. I’ll get my blue suede shoes.

T puts on Baby Shark maybe a few too many times during the day but hey. I still know all the words.

At the end of the night V likes a bit of energy. Loud music is the way! Enter System of a (Close) Down. Boom there’s my teenage years. There in the kitchen.

I love particularly the uniquely human experiences that music allows us. Music can express emotion. Music can provoke emotion. Music can take us back in time. It can push us forward.

It sparks conversations. Encourages friendly debates. We laugh as we sing the wrong words in the silliest voices. It connects us. It bonds us. In a job where the team is everything. Music can hold us together.

Yesterday The Monkees, I’m a believer came on at work. Me and V were dancing in the KP room.

Dancing is my favourite. Dancing for me is instant happiness.

You know what they say.

Happy chefs make tasty food.
