People who plan kitchens for families with children know that a lot of kid's cooking abilities stop at microwave burritos.
"The Rock and Roll Kitchen," a TV show currently being offered to syndicators, may help alleviate this condition. The show is designed to give kids the message that it's "cool to cook," said its host, Scott Page, a musician currently working with Pink Floyd.
Guests include the likes of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. The show features live performances and cooking demos, and the most striking visual elements of the decidedly rock-ish set in a cooktop shaped like an enormous electric guitar.
Also planned is a cookbook of rock stars' recipes. Given the
creativity that goes into the names of acts -- like Humble Pie, Meat
Loaf, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Flying Burrito Brothers, The
Mighty Lemon Drops, Meat Puppets, Throbbing Gristle and of course,
Vanilla Ice -- the rock star recipes should be at the very least
somewhat amusing, if not actually appetizing. And here's hoping the
recipes won't simply be a thousand variations on grilled cheese or
whatever tastes good with cornflakes.
