    News: The Guardian (Food) Interview (October 15, 2011)

    Posted by Beth on Sunday, October 16, 2011 | Articles

    Since we first started dating in 1994, my husband [a sound engineer] and I have had this culinary adventure, exploring different restaurants around the world, on “non-show days”. It’s part of the romance and it’s “our time”. Although our daughter Tash often accompanies us. We brought her to Le Caprice as a baby. She was loving mussels escargot at two.

    In a unique and fascinating interview with the UK Observer, Tori talks about food, from a coffee mishap at 2 to her carnivorous leanings in the early 1990s. Yum, Susan!



    Tori Amos: I’d start the day with three dozen oysters then a rare steak. I felt powerful on stage’
    The singer-songwriter on her formative food experiences

    The Observer, Saturday 15 October 2011

    My father was a preacher in Maryland and we had crab feasts – with corn on the cob, but no beer, being Methodist – outside on the church lawn.

    At 16 I was playing piano in the restaurant of the Sheraton Carlton, right below the White House, making 100 bucks a night, six nights a week. This was more than my dad made, which was strange and difficult. The important thing was not to mistake a lobbyist’s or governor’s wife’s favourite song for his mistress’s.

    My mother says that, when I was almost two, I went over to the coffee pot at my great aunt Grace’s house and pulled it over on myself, so I was in a burns unit for a few days. I’ve never had a thing for coffee.

    I remember when I was eight or nine, we dined each night for a month at the home of a different family in my father’s parish. There was one lady who ate all of each component – like all the potatoes – on her plate before moving on to the next component. And I thought: “OK, I’ll do that from now on.” At 15, I knew someone whose mother cooked macrobiotic, so I persuaded my mother to go macrobiotic with me.

    In the mid-90s, doing two shows a day, I’d start the day with three dozen oysters, then maybe have a medium rare steak. That’s it. No carbs, no greens. I felt powerful and lean on stage.

    I most judged myself for enjoying a meal around 2007. I was overly stressed, the thinnest I’ve been, eating in an extreme way. Guilty while eating and after. But now I’m at a normal size, I feel that if you’re not enjoying your food in a balanced way, then why are you living?

    I don’t really cook. There are caterers, and my husband cooks. But a few years ago, when my husband was off working, I did try getting into grilling, but I stopped after I had my feelings hurt. Someone said the salmon I grilled looked like it had acne.

    I’ve been known to throw watermelons, backstage, at people who are giving me news I don’t want to hear. But I never aim for the head.
