Remember that pivotal moment of every MTV Cribs episode where the celeb revealed the contents of their zillion dollar refrigerator? I lived for that part. Typically, the fridges were filled with perfectly organized lines of the products they endorsed or raw ingredients and supplements. But every once in a blue moon you’d see someone (cough, cough Ludacris) who seemed unprepared for that part of the show and had the more realistic combo of spilled juice, cheese and pickles behind those doors. Fascinating.
Anyways, now that Cribs is off my cable subscription, I’ve been missing out on my celeb fridge fix. That is, until Midwest food blog and magazine, The Heavy Table, introduced their “What’s In Your Fridge” series. The most interesting of subjects thus far? None other than the formerly symbolic Minneapolis-born superstar, Prince.
Some highlights from the musical legend’s bizarre icebox (and his AMAZING justifications for each):
Five pounds of Dunk-a-roos
Prince’s response: “Don’t know what 2 say about Dunk-a-roos. They’re just good! Sometimes you want a food that is comfortable and takes you back. For me, it’s those crazy little kangaroo crackers.”
A gallon of homemade kimchi
Prince’s response: “This stuff is AMAZING.”
Tons of mustard
Prince’s response: “I don’t collect it, but LOL yeah there’s a lot in there. U gotta love mustard. The raspberry kind is the best. You wouldn’t expect it but that’s how it goes.”
One quart of yak milk
Prince’s response: “This stuff is TOO AMAZING. It clarifies your skin and your mind. It is given freely by the yak, so U can truly enjoy it. Great with Chex – Rice Chex, Wheat Chex, whatever!!!”
One gallon of (real) maple syrup
Prince’s response: “People say U can’t tell the difference, but U know, it’s the real deal. It’s a cut above. It’s about 100 cuts above. This is the only thing that touches my waffles.”
So many questions here (ie. Did raspberry mustard inspire Raspberry Beret?). I wonder what Prince would think of my pudding cups, chicken sausage and pepper jack….my guess? U know it — AMAZING!
