Last week, my colleague Margaret launched an exhibition with the great title Food Glorious Food, which you can see in the display cases on North Front Corridor at the Cambridge University Library.

To set a musical counterpoint, and (I’m not ashamed) in order to promote the exhibition Margaret curated, I’d thought I would add some further musical elements to the food theme.

I like the idea of the following book, which not only offers you recipes, but you also get a CD to accompany your cooking activities:

Main author: Morris, Sallie.
Title: Easy Thai cookbook : the step-by-step guide to deliciously easy Thai food at home / Sallie Morris.
Published: London : Duncan Baird, 2007.
Description: 212 p. : col. ill. ; 25 x 27 cm. + 1 sound disc (60 min., 57 sec. : digital, stereo. ; 4 3/4 in.)
ISBN: 9781844833726 (pbk.) :
1844833720 (pbk.) :
Includes index.
CD in pocket attached to inside back cover.
Accompanied by a CD of Thai music.

Of course, there are many other connections between music and food, but to lighten up your spirits and not to bore you with further ‘random’ examples, please appreciate the following YouTube video of The Vegetable Orchestra:
