Audio Gourmet. Food and music. Yeah that’s right!

So I love food and I love music.  And that’s why I set up Audio Gourmet, to waffle on about food, music and everything in between. What’s in between those two Great British things? Probably songs about food, or meals based on music, or something.

I’ve separated the site into two parts – this part that deals with food, and the other part where I talk about music experiences.

If you’re interested in culinary excitement or musical creativity, then read on. If you’re not interested or if you think you’ve come to the wrong place, don’t let me keep you.

I know you’re busy.

More about me:

I live in Manchester, UK, and I am a human man. I have five cats, one tortoise and a wife. I am planning to take over the world when I have the motivation, but in the meantime I’m going to talk about food and music.

As more of an introduction, here’s what I give thumbs up and what I give thumbs down.

My favourite things are as follows:



  • Chips and gravy
  • Poutine - a favourite from Canada
  • Chips and not gravy
  • Sushi


  • 1970s prog rock
  • 1980s/90s thrash metal like Skid Row
  • Abba
  • Musical theatre

My least favourite things are as follows


  • Spiders
  • Lobsters
  • Offal


I will add things to these lists as and when I think of them. Just for completeness of course – not that I think you actually care.

So after you’ve read that exciting list, you’re probably thinking that I know nothing about music, and my food preferences put me as far away from being a gourmet as it’s possible to get.

But who’s is to say what’s gourmet food and good music. I’m a food lover and a music lover, and that’s all that matters. I enjoy food and I enjoy music, and I can say why. I’d probably run a mile from Michelin starred food, but if you like basic food done well, you’re on the same wavelength as me.

If you like posher stuff, you can probably find that elsewhere on this site.
