The 4-Hour Chef – The Soundtrack

The 4-Hour Chef has a soundtrack.

Yes, that’s right. Instead of wine pairings (I explore booze elsewhere in the book), every recipe in the DOMESTIC and WILD sections has a song pairing.

Each tune was carefully chosen to complement the food. It might also be the only playlist in history that starts with Eric B & Rakim and ends with Elvis.

Please check out Tools of Titans, my latest book, which shares the tactics, routines, and habits of billionaires, icons, and world-class performers. It was distilled from more than 10,000 pages of notes, and everything has been vetted and tested in my own life in some fashion. The tips and tricks in Tools of Titans changed my life, and I hope the same for you. Click here for sample chapters, full details, and a Foreword from Arnold Schwarzenegger.
