REVERB’s Quarantine Kitchen – Episode 22: DJ Logic
We’re back for season 2!
When we set out to start Quarantine Kitchen, we didn’t know if anyone would watch… Well you all certainly answered that for us! (The answer was yes, by the way)
We’re kicking off season 2 with an amazing deejay and long-time REVERB friend, DJ Logic! Hailing from the Bronx, DJ Logic has been a well-respected turntablist and wax innovator since his start in the early 90s. Having worked with a genre-spanning who’s-who of diverse collaborators including Jack Johnson, Carly Simon, and Mos Def, DJ Logic is truly in a league of his own.
Now we’re going to see if his skills in the kitchen match his turntable talent.
DJ LOGIC joins host / REVERB Co-Director / Guster frontman Adam Gardner to make Seared Arctic Char Sushi Bowls.
Check out the recipe below so you can cook along!
