Cooking and Heavy Metal: More Similar Than You Think

The similarities between kitchen and heavy metal cultures are numerous.

The Grill ‘Em All Truck spurred the conversation but the shared characteristics are vast:

Metal: knives, pots, pans, grills, utensils. In the kitchen you avoid puncturing your skin with them- in the pit you pierce as much as you can.

Fire: on the stage it’s pyrotechnique delight, in the kitchen it’s the difference between medium well and no eyebrows.

With the metal and fire comes danger. Danger of being burnt, cut, or worse. (This video is totally metal.)

Tattoos: mainly skulls and knives in both worlds. (And pigs in Kevin’s case.)

Shredding: on stage the guitar player shreds, in the kitchen it’s either the food processor or the new guy.

“Mosh Pit-atoes anyone?”

So whether it’s the brutal worlds of heavy metal or cooking, you can be sure that everyone involved loves Pantera. I know I do.

(Below you’ll find Lars from Metallica being very un-brutal in the kitchen.)
