Rocks out cooking!
Rock has made a career out of bringing together disparate elements that should perhaps have remained, for the good of mankind, permanently disparate – his combination of MTV-friendly rap rock with Lynyrd Skynyrd-styled good old boyisms for example. Or his brave decision to intermingle pimp-chic fur coats with Appetite for Destruction-era Axl Rose hair and top the whole confection off with a Blues Brothers trilby. Evidently he carries this trait over into the kitchen, where you can regularly find him injecting a turkey with mixture of Sprite, salt and paprika before deep frying it. The turkey actually comes out of this encounter on top if you think about it. Granted it does have to suffer the indignity of being pumped full of fizzy pop by a man who looks like stoat dressed up as Flavor Flav, but it doesn't actually have to eat the resulting soft-drink infused culinary abortion.

Dave Grohl's pork recipe is as brutal as his music.

The Nicest Man in Rock™ comes over positively brutal in this recipe, smothering the innocent pork with blackberry jam and mango. Much like the last Foo Fighters album, Wasting Light, it's pretty heavy stuff, reflecting his band's status as arena-rock mainstays and all-round rock animals. This is big choruses, big pyrotechnics and big lumps of mango all over your pork. Apparently. Your mileage may vary.
Pork Tenderloins & Mango Salsa
"It's so easy a dumb ass like me could make it, so it's not something you're
going to probably see on the food channel although it's really tasty."
Two mangoes, cubed
Jalapeno peppers, de-seeded, de-ribbed and finely chopped
Lime zest and juice
One red onion, finely chopped
Mint leaves, chopped
Salt and Pepper
Two 12-ounce (340 gram) pork tenderloins
3 tablespoons blackberry preserve
¾ cup of raspberry vinaigrette
- Mix the mango with the jalapeno peppers, lime zest, lime juice, red onion and mint leaves. Add salt to taste.
- Season the pork tenderloins with salt and pepper. Pan-fry them for about two or three minutes either side, then put them into the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit / 230 degrees Celsius.
- Mix the blackberry preserve with the raspberry vinaigrette, reduce for about ten minutes or until it forms a syrup.
- Pull the cooked tenderloins out of the oven, scoop salsa over them and drizzle with the blackberry syrup. Garnish with mint leaves and you've got yourself a tasty meal!

David Yow spent years working in restaurants.
For many Jesus Lizard fans, the band's defining moment came when their singer David Yow, as an accompaniment to their instrumental track Tight N Shiny, would ease an intimate part of his anatomy out of his flies and manipulate it until it became a visual tribute to the song's title. So it should come as no surprise to discover that he prefers to take his meat in a more natural manner than Grohl, advocating a simple rosemary and garlic rub followed by the briefest pass over a searing hot pan. Yow has serious cooking chops, having spent years working at restaurants in Texas and Chicago and once considered opening a "snobby little cafe" with his good chum, Steve Albini. The food would surely be impeccable, but it would definitely be worth your while checking that he'd washed his hands, thoroughly, before sitting down to eat.
