For many who enjoy cooking, it’s a relaxing activity.

Depending on what type of music, or whether you even turn on the jams, your cooking experience can be quite different.

Think about how differently you’d whisk some eggs if “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne was playing versus if some Louis Armstrong was rolling.

What do you cook to? Does it change by the day?

Whether chopping onions or filleting fish, you need to consider the acoustic environment that you’re in. Whatever your favorite beats are, music is definitely a big part of being a chef.

There tends to be certain music that goes with certain moods; the state of mind you have on a particular day will dictate, more than anything else, what kind of music is right for a food preparation session.

Whether it’s your own music, the radio, or serene silence, what gets you jiving?
