Are you familiar with Supper? The Spotify-based app, which launched in fall 2013, capitalizes on the mouthwatering chemistry between good food and good tunes. There are recipes from well-known restaurants in NYC—Roberta's, Empellón, Alder—and abroad, and each one comes with two playlists: one for cooking and another for chowing down. This week, Momofuku took over the app with 12 new recipes and hand-chosen tracks.
The dishes featured are from eateries spanning David Chang's global empire, and their musical pairings are totally tasty whether you're actually cooking or not. Think crack pie from Milk Bar with Haim and Fleetwood Mac, or fried beef short ribs with apricot glaze from Ssäm with Miles Davis. Plus, with straightforward recipe tags like "contains plant," "easy as hell" and "feeds plenty," it's easier to pick a recipe. We'll take seconds of that, thanks.
