A creative compendium of recipes that reclaims the kitchen for the hip crowd

Historically, a love of cooking has been left to those considered far from cool: suburbanite Betty Crockers toiling over a hot stove. But the new youth-culture sensibility has taken over, merging the axiom "You are what you eat" with its updated mantra "You are who you listen to." Lost in the Supermarket --yes, named for the 1979 hit by The Clash--is a creative compendium of recipes that reclaims the kitchen for the hip crowd. At once a meditation on the connection between food and music and a great culinary resource, this cookbook is full of the favorite recipes of some of indie rock's elite. In chapters on both daily dishes and special event grub, contributions from such indie notables as Animal Collective, Black Dice, Sunset Rubdown, and Country Teasers are included, givingreaders plenty to groove on, whether they're in it for the tunes or the tastes or both.
