Bonus Interview Questions:

What inspired you to start the Shenanigans Supper Club (SSC)?

The inspiration came from a realization that I am not the only Goose fan who loves cooking. A lot of time, we are out on the road touring, but the reality is we don’t get to make every show. So, when I am on couch tour, catching the streams from home, I find myself cooking up great meals. One of my favorite things about food is that it is best when shared with others. Life is so much more than keeping the best ideas for ourselves. 

Sharing my ideas with a larger community has been mutually beneficial. Not only do I get to teach, but I get to learn. Some members are into gardening, while others are bee keepers. Others are great cooks who see food completely different than me. Not much brings more joy to my heart than cooking for a few hours only to have my face light up to the discovery of a new flavor combination.

Tell me about your thoughts on the parallels between cooking and music?

Wow, this a great question! There are so similarities between self-discovery, development of self-confidence, and the biggest is community. It seems like nothing unites humanity like a delicious meal and good music. While food has the physical ability to feed our body, music works to nourish our souls, both are extremely important for happiness. 

Humility is also a big lesson. Whether you are butchering a new song or baking a new cake recipe, take time to learn and be patient with yourself. I may mess up a recipe 3 or 4 times before I get it “perfect”, but being patient, not getting angry with myself, and constantly learning allows trials 2,3,4, etc. to occur, which end in self-mastery. Finally, like music, recipes ripple through our lives, it can empower important decisions, brings family and friends together, convince us to become a better version of ourselves, or even encourage us to look at the big picture and start gardening.
