Our Music Pairings
Welcome to our musical pairings which has been designed to enhance your food experience while you are cooking or enjoying your meal. Various playlists have been carefully curated by Jay Yoo, a local budding musician for your listening pleasure. Some are his favourites that he thought you may also like. Themes include, exciting, nostalgic, chill & relaxing. There are many songs that you may never have heard of, but may enjoy while cooking/eating by yourself or with others.
Specific playlists are recommended for certain experiences like for coffee drinking and the JTF Army stew to bring you back to the music that was played during that era. Ultimately we recommend that you listen to a playlist that you are in the mood for to feed your soul. Jay recommends to listen to the songs in the playlists in order and not shuffle play to experience the flow.
Below are the various playlists which we'll be adding to on a regular basis that can be played on our Youtube channel or Spotify.
