Detroit Chef Designs 10 Course Meal Inspired by Radiohead's 'Kid A'
A Detroit chef has designed a 10 course meal inspired by Radiohead's "Kid A" album, the Huffington Post reports (via NME).

Kyle Hanley, a chef at the Detroit Golf Club, has created a menu designed to pair a course up with each track on the 2000 record, while Joseph Allerton, a food and beverage director, chooses the complementing wine and cocktails by considering the music rather than the food it will be consumed with.

Hanley told the publication he studied music before becoming a chef and hears "textures and colours" when he listens to an album. "Especially Radiohead, they are very textural. They are a very visceral band," he said.

Of the idea to create a menu inspired by an album, Hanley explained: "Most people put out CDs, and this is an actual album. One song flows into the next, and we kind of want to do the same thing with the courses." The 10 course meal begins with "Everything in Its Right Place," which translates to a dish of pan-seared diver scallop, yuzu fluid gel, fried cellophane noodle, lemongrass ponzu, chili oil, with Pfalz Riesling. It concludes with "Motion Picture Soundtrack" - a mousse dou with blackberry pate de fruit Niepoort LBV port.

Currently, the meal is only planned to be served at Detroit's Elizabeth Theatre on February 19 but Hanley and his business partner Bill Keros are considering turning the event into a monthly series with different albums inspiring each dinner.
