Welcome to the first in our series What the Stars Eat. Chris Eanes, also known as the bassist for local jamband Funk Punch, cooks for Ovations Food Services, which does the chow at Roanoke Civic Center. He has cooked for most every big name that has rolled through the civic center, including most recently, Miranda Lambert. I saw a photo he posted on facebook today of himself and Lambert, and I immediately wondered what he cooked for her. Here is his response:
“I fixed a few things I found on the interweb that she likes…. Her mom’s meatloaf recipe, flourless crunchy peanut-butter cookies, and a dish she makes for Blake’s birthday every year called corn & macaroni casserole… all 3 were great!!”
We’ll follow up next week with what Zac Brown Band ate — assuming that Brown doesn’t bring his own chow, as he has been known to do. UPDATE 4:01 p.m. 1.22.13: Brown will definitely have his own caterer, but look for posts about Carrie Underwood, Brantley Gilbert, The Avett Brothers and more in the coming weeks and months.
