Detroit Chef Plans Pop-Up Inspired by Radiohead's Kid A

A Detroit chef is paying tribute to Radiohead's 2000 album Kid A with a 10-course pop-up dinner inspired entirely by the music. The Detroit Free Press reports chef Kyle Hanley, who works at the Detroit Golf Club, will team with sommelier Joseph Allerton for "A Night with Kid A" dinner. Appropriately, the album will be played in order as the meal progresses, with one course representing each track on the album: "Everything in its Right Place" is a seared scallop with yuzu gel and fried noodles; "In Limbo" is represented by something called "shades of Bouillabaisse."

Hanley tells the Free Press that he and Allerton wrote their menus separately, responding only to the music: "The music was the complete and total basis for the food, and separately for the wine." Luckily, the food and wine happen to pair together "really, really nicely." The event will be held at Detroit's Elizabeth Theater on February 19.
