Cheoff's Kitchen Cookers #36 Spotify Daily Mix

Here’s a lazy effort from me. I sporadically press ‘Play’ on one of my Spotify Daily Mix selections. Based on my listening habits. No doubt relying on a fiendishly clever algorithm similar to that which my supermarket uses to tailor delivery of the money off coupon I’ve always wanted.

So I allowed the tracks to build up and grabbed wodges of them to construct what you see - and what you might soon be hearing.

All I had to do was ‘Skip Duplicates’ which tended to crop up. Before I knew it over ten hours of listening had assembled. This is a focused assembly which by no means reflects the full scope of my music tastes. But it doesn’t throw up much that I would edit quickly in shame.

Have a listen. I’ve done all the hard work for you.

Oh… no, I haven’t really, have I.

Cooker #35

Christmas Cooker 2018? Gone. Ah, well… soon be Christmas, eh.

In the meantime might I offer this small distraction. I’ll sell it no more than that. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to apply quality control of your own. I do agonise (only very slightly) over track order. You might press ‘random play’ and serendipitously arrive at a running list more in line with your own ineffably good taste.

And there we must leave it. I have a few ear-worms crawling around already which could inhabit Cooker #36 but I seem to be putting at least two months in between posting these playlists. So I have plenty of time to think about the final tracks for next time. Unless, of course, you’d like me to get a shift on and present things just that bit sooner.

The Christmas Cooker - 2018

Time to alert you to this cooking companion for those long, steamy hours in your Christmas kitchen… my #Cooker to round off 2018 (strong hint that I’ve not bothered to compile a New Year’s Eve playlist!)

Quite a few usual suspects here with some dragged back from my Christmas past to be played again for the first time in a long time. You’ll see that I didn’t put in a filler to stretch this into a fifth hour of listening. You can, of course, line up my tracks and cram it full of your own selections. Christmas is all about the stuffing, isn’t it!

I do hope most of you will be able to share some sort of joy with a few loved ones over the holiday. Remember - where two or more are gathered together in the sight (and sound) of a Cheoff’s Christmas Cooker toe-tapping, barely-controlled gyrating and tasty food are bound to follow.

For anyone who might be lonely, for whatever reason, may you keep yourself together in preparation for what we could all do with… better things in the new year.

Here’s hoping to see you all again in that there 2019.

Cooker #30

#Cookers are now 'thirtysomething'!

Yes, yes, I hear you. It's actually 'thirtynothing'. Please understand that I am at least as pedantic as you and recognised my offence immediately.

Hey... let's lighten up and momentarily distract from our pit of niggardly nit-picking by listening to the assembly of tracks which had to wait until #Cooker 29 was a dim distant memory.

Hmmm. Should we really describe 58 minutes as 'momentary'? Oh dear...

Cooker #28

Just back from a rather smashing slightly-less-than-a-fortnight French holiday. You'll have to look elsewhere for further information about that smashingness.

You are here, of course, solely to finger your mouse, tap your touch pad or screen or maybe even massage your mobile and gain access to the latest offering of sounds which scientific research agrees can improve your cooking skills.

So, with a gentle reminder to always be on guard for spurious claims in the culinary world, I leave you to explore number twenty-eight.
