The Playlist That Keeps This Chocolatier Baking

Eater Young Gun Annie Kamin’s top tracks for getting shit done


You don’t need science to prove that music is capable of motivating you or putting you in a very specific mood (though there is science for that). Which is why plenty of chefs are particular about the soundtracks that play while they work in the kitchen. Annie Kamin, a 2019 Eater Young Gun, says, “I curate playlists and choose songs that jive with what what I’m cooking [or] baking at home or at work.” Often, that’s chocolate: Kamin is the chief-of-staff at Dandelion Chocolate, a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in San Francisco where she started as an assistant and ended up overseeing the company’s factories and production.

As a chocolatier herself, Kamin improved production by helping the company diagnose and cure its chocolate tempering issues. Below, Kamin says, is her playlist for when “I’m tempering a huge batch of chocolate.”
