Can You Match The Seasonal Pantry Dish With The Wu-Tang Tune That Inspired It?

Seasonal Pantry's Dan O'Brien offered Y&H a sneak peek at the finalized menu for his sold-out "Wu-Tang Dinner" series, which begins tonight at the popular supper club in Shaw. Each of O'Brien's dishes corresponds with a song by the influential Staten Island hip-hop troupe Wu-Tang Clan. (As you might have guessed, O'Brien is a big fan of the group.) See if you can match the songs with their corresponding dishes in the comments section. We'll provide the answers later.

The dishes:

  1. Champagne blinis, smoked trout roe, crème fraîche
  2. Pickled hot pepper cream cheese topped with jumbo lump crab salad over steamed brioche
  3. Tuna and pickled ginger tartare, served open-faced over a wasabi macaroon and garnished with soy sauce salt, lemon pudding, hot Chinese mustard and sesame seeds
  4. Smoked turkey neck stock with smoked chicken, oregano, parmesan and spring greens from Marion Street Intergenerational Garden
  5. 60-day dry-aged Rosetta sirloin with green garlic-parsley sauce, beef jus and bone marrow crust
  6. Smoked chocolate pudding with bruleed marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs and brown-butter burnt marshmallow ice cream

The tunes:

A.    "Hollow Bones"

B.     "36 Chambers/Protect Ya Neck"

C.    "Campfire"

D.   " C.R.E.A.M."

E.     "Visionz"

F.     "Da Mystery of Chessboxin’"
