There's always music in the SAVEUR office. By day, our test kitchen controls the speakers. And by night, when chefs from across the country and the world come to cook dinner for our SAVEUR Suppers, our associate director of communications Stefanie McNamara builds a playlist for the occasion. She makes it a point to ask the visiting chefs what music they like to cook to, and she'll include other artists from their city. Because music is as much a representation of place as food. So when Tory McPhail of Commander's Palace was here, we listened to the Rebirth Brass Band and Dr. John. When Chris Shepherd, executive chef at Underbelly in Houston, cooked in the kitchen, the mood (Beyonce and Lyle Lovett) and the food (charred cabbage and short ribs) were all Texas.
