Match Music To The Food You’re Making

This online app recommends music tracks to the type of cuisine you are preparing.

A new music-based online app called FoodBeats helps you find music genres that go with the cuisine you’re cooking. The site was created by the agency Outside Line for its client Lurpak margarine. The app utilizes Last.fm, an online music service.

After launching the website, it asks the user to search and select from a comprehensive list of recipes. Then, based on the cooking time and type of food, the site recommends a playlist for that cooking session. If you’re baking a pizza, it might suggest Italian songs. Or if you’re making a zesty salad, it would bring up chilled  summer tunes.

Currently, FoodBeats only works for users in the U.K. or Ireland due to licensing restrictions.
