The Chew has a great episode October 8, 2014, talking to country legend Martina McBride about her brand new cookbook Around the Table and making a special recipe from it. The Chew crew is also dedicating the whole episode to the idea of “country legends,” making country style recipes.
The Chew: Martina McBride Around The Table Cookbook
Not many country superstars can also say they wrote a cookbook, but Martina McBride is one of them. She’s coming by The Chew to talk about her brand new cookbook Around the Table and even dropping in to whip up a recipe from the cookbook with the help of Carla Hall.
My dad listened to a lot of country when I was a kid, so when I hear powerhouse country songs like Martina McBride’s “A Broken Wing,” it brings me right back to my childhood. She really knew how to tell a story in her music. I think that country has lost something since the days when people like Martina McBride was in charge. It feels like a lot of country today is more about fusion than about real country music. It’s cool that Florida Georgia Lime can have rapper Nelly on a track, Taylor Swift can make a straight up pop album, and Jason Aldean can rap the verses on his song “Dirt Road Anthem.” I think there’s a time and a place for that.
But it feels like so much of country music today is more about what they can bring in from other genres. It’s like the entire industry is self-conscious about making real country music. Martina McBride was never self-conscious. She just rocked country music the right way, with plenty of twangy guitars and beautiful vocals, telling stories that made your heart ache.
The Chew: Country Style Dishes
The Chew also promises plenty of country style dishes, which I hope means fried chicken, corn on the cob, barbecue chicken, potato salad, country fried steak, and things of that nature.
We’ll have to tune in October 8, 2014, to see what The Chew and Martina McBride cook up!
