Rice Boy Cooks

Oh. My. Foreign boy couple crush. Jonsi and Alex (Rice Boy Sleeps and Sigur Ros) are pretty much the most adorable, creative, I-wanna-be-their-best-friend couple ever. They make my favorite music, and the loveliest art, and now offer up nutritious deliciousness. I like to think they're looking out for me, body and soul. And now having perused their free downloadable Good Heart Recipe Book I want to have them over visit them in Iceland and make diner and drink wine and listen to Jonsi's beautiful accent.

I'm not generally a huge fan of the vegan / raw thing (especially vegan things disguised as non-vegan things. Why call a nut mash vegan cream cheese? Why can't it just be mashed nuts?), but these recipes are very in line with how I cook, and the presentation is some homespun and adorable. Plus, they have a recipe called Macadamia Monster Mash, so points for calling it like it is.

You can download the recipe book here, as well as watch pretty darn tootin' cute videos such as this one.

And if you're all 'Sigur Ros, of course, but the heck is Rice Boy Sleeps?' you can check them out here, and read my words of adoration here. I think I'm going to put them on now and let them lull me to sleep.

Hehe, I saw your music recommends in the Leproust VIntage blog and just had to come and say that I'm so pleased to bump into someone who lists Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Handsome Furs and Rural Alberta Advantage as the first four bands in their list! :) I think I have to check out the other Canadian bands you mentioned, I'm not familiar with them apart from Timber Timbre.

ohhhh I love Sigur Ros! It is so wonderful to find a community of such like-minded music fans!

Thank you so much for the music suggestions. I am going to take some time this week and preview everything I am not familiar with!
