One Ring Zero asked their favorite chefs for recipes. The recipes were then set to music and sung WORD FOR WORD. (Musical styles suggested by the chef.) The Recipe Project features David Chang, Chris Cosentino, Mario Batali, Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Michael Symon, Mark Kurlansky, and many more. Available as a 116 page hardback book and CD directly from here.
