Sam Mason Presents A Caribbean Themed Menu As THEOPHILUS LONDON Plays New Urban Pop Melodies In The Loft
06.23.2010 – The new IFC Original Series DINNER WITH THE BAND is the first cooking show to combine culinary delights, musical performances and conversations with select acclaimed indie music artists. DINNER WITH THE BAND debuts April 27 at 10:30 pm ET/PT in IFC’s Tuesday night AUTOMAT programming block, following two new back-to-back 15-minute episodes of FOOD PARTY.
In each of the 30-minute episodes, celebrated NYC rock-n-roll chef Sam Mason (Tailor, WD-50), invites a band over to his Brooklyn loft where he teaches them how to add his signature culinary spin to their favorite “on-tour” food. Throughout the show, Chef Mason and the artists converse on food, music and life while cooking together. After they “chow down” they “get down” as each act takes to the loft’s living room to play a rockin’ musical set.
On June 29, DINNER WITH THE BAND will feature special guest THEOPHILUS LONDON and he is ready to entertain Sam Mason and his friends with some of his new urban pop melodies, as well as dig into one of Sam’s specialty meals
On the menu: Sam has decided to use Theophilus’s Caribbean childhood as the inspiration for the menu. He’s making Calypso Porterhouse (porterhouse steak), Charming Callaloo (Callaloo salad) and Burning Cornbread (Cornbread with jerk seasoning and honey). Once the meal gets finished, Sam whips up the “Dark and Humdrum,” a ginger beer and rum cocktail.
After Theophilus helps Sam in the kitchen for a bit, he steps upstairs to rip out his songs, “Julia” and “Humdrum Town.”
