Delicious, or a disaster? When you’re cooking with Chef Pierre and using the official WMMR Cookbook, it could go either way.

In 1988, WMMR published the Rock n’ Roll Celebrity Cookbook with recipes from rockstars and station staff. It’s got contributions from the DJs at the time: John DeBella, Joe Bonnadonna, Ray Koob, Michael Tearon, Cyndy Drue, Lyn Kratz, our program director Ted Utz, engineer Walter Jost and several others. The musicians who offered recipes include Tom Petty, David Bowie, Mike Rutherford of Genesis, Peter Frampton, Lou Reed, Billy Squire, David Lee Roth, Clarence Clemons, David Crosby, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Alex Lifeson of Rush, and so many more.

Some were authentic recipes. There’s Pat Benatar’s Pizza, Greg Kihn’s Crab Cakes, and the “Big Man’s Marinade” from Clarence Clemons. Some were more whimsical than practical (Boiling Gator Water, anyone?).

October is National Cookbook Month, so Pierre Robert and Brent Porche marked the occasion by highlighting their favorite dishes in the cookbook, and they even try a brand new concoction! Spoiler alert: it was a stomach-churning disaster. Watch until the end…

We’ll leave you with a special recipe from Graham Nash: “Take some hope, take some compassion, take a half hour of thought, take some food to the food bank. It’s a great recipe for life!
