  1. Turntable Kitchen Teams Up with Shutterbean for the March Pairings Box!



    In my phone, Tracy’s contact info is saved as ‘Tracy Shutterbean.’ Strangely, Matt is still ‘Matthew Hickey.’ I cannot explain these things. In any case, Tracy has been a wonderful friend and an inspiration to me in so many ways. When I found out I was pregnant, one of the many thoughts that crossed my mind was, “how will I be able to pull together the recipes for the Pairings Box with a newborn baby on my hands?!” I kid you not; these are the sorts of things I was thinking about while holding a pregnancy test with two double lines on it in my bathroom at 10:45 pm on the eve of a business trip to New York City.

    Thankfully, a few very talented friends were happy to help out and we found ourselves cooking up some very cool collaborations. Our January Pairings Box, which sold out before we even had a chance to announce our partnership with Spoon Fork Bacon, was a big hit. Jenny and Teri came up with a unique collection of Korean-inspired recipes, all centered around the month’s Premium ingredient, Gochugaru (Korean Chili Flakes). Next month, Pairings Box subscribers will be in for another treat: a recipe collection curated by the fabulous Tracy Shutterbean!

    What’s more, we’re including a VERY special bonus treat in next month’s Pairings Box. You might remember seeing these gorgeous bamboo skewers from AHeirloom…The wonderful folks from the company are generously gifting all Pairings Box subscribers with a set of skewers created for Turntable Kitchen! As a husband and wife team, we love the fact that AHeirloom is also a family-run small business. In addition to the skewers, Amy and her husband Bill create expertly-crafted cutting boards in the shape of all 50 states. We’re big fans of our California cutting board, which we use for everything from serving cheese and crackers to cutting bread. We hope you enjoy both of these very special treats in next month’s Pairings Box.

    It’s been so fun working with such creative and inspiring people and adding their unique voices to our product. We can’t wait to hear what you think about next month’s Pairings Box.

  2. October Pairings Box Outtakes + November Pairings Box Announcement


    I wanted to share a few outtakes from the October Pairings Box, A Forest-Inspired Fête. Last month’s Premium ingredient was Salt-Packed Sicilian Capers (they’re magical!) and the Musical Pairing was Turtle Giant – Gold Tooth (Killer) / All Light (Live Session). The shot above is of Golden Cauliflower with Capers, Pine Nuts and Raisins, a great starter for our Crispy Skin Salmon with Lemon-Herb Butter (pictured below). We rounded out the month’s collection with a recipe for Yogurt, Mascarpone and Fig Tartlets. They’re sort of reminiscent of cheesecake, but much lighter (and healthier).

    Great news for vegetarian friends and subscribers: the November Pairings Box is vegetarian-friendly. So, if you’ve been meaning to get a vegetarian friend a gift subscription, now’s the time! We receive a lot of questions from folks wondering if we can create special recipe collections to cater to various dietary restrictions. The truth is: we’re a very small operation and we create three original recipes every month. That said, we almost always feature at least one vegetarian recipe, and are happy to suggest substitutions wherever possible. We also try to announce when recipe collections happen to be gluten-free, vegetarian, pescatarian, nut-free, etc.

    You can purchase the vegetarian-friendly November Pairings Box until November 14th. After that, we’ll be taking orders beginning with December. With the holidays just around the corner, consider getting friends and family a Pairings Box subscription. Also, check out some of the limited-edition bundles in the TK Market (you can find past Pairings Box singles you can’t otherwise purchase, bundled with our soft American Apparel tees and recipe cards).

  3. TK001: Motel Beds – Western Son / UK Surfjerk 7″


    Dayton, Ohio’s Motel Beds are on fire. Earlier this year they released one of my favorite records so far of 2011: Sunfried Dreams. They’re now playing the No More Fake Labels showcase at CMJ on October 20th. And they’ve already prepped the follow-up to Sunfried Dreams, titled Tango Boys, which is as solid as rock and features a duet with none other than Kelley Deal (of Breeders fame). So we’re honored to release their very first ever vinyl single as part of our very first ever Pairings Box. The a-side “Western Son” is one of Sunfried Dreams‘ highlights with it’s slow-burning guitar-leaden groove, steady percussion, rubber-band crisp bassline and singer PJ Paslosky’s crackling, reedy croon. The b-side was recorded specifically for the single is an alternate-take of album track “Surfjerk.”  It’s a surf-rock inspired ballad with a soft, gliding melody and a rhythm as smooth and oak-infused as a tumbler of fine scotch.

    Motel Beds – Western Son

    The Western Son / UK Surfjerk 7″ is only available through our nearly sold-out October Pairings Box. I promise you, you’ll be hearing more about them in the future.
