When performing on the road music producers and DJs don’t always get to eat as healthy as they’d like. As a result, many have unsurprisingly taken to makeshift meals they can prep on a simple hotplate or cook over a campfire. Self-care just so rarely can be found in the drive-thru. Despite the mental and physical costs, the show must go on, so to learn more about what the most iconic DJs eat to keep the party going we’ve collected their most impressive recipes in a new series called Turnip The Beets. 

In our first-ever installment, we’re heading into the kitchen with Will Clarke. Known on Instagram secondly as @willmakesyouhungry he’s true to his handle. More to the point, Will Clarke cooks up and serves some of the most mouthwatering bliss a person can throw over one lip. He’s a busy man too. As a lifelong foodie and an avid home cook, Clarke is a man who makes the most of every moment. Nevertheless, we caught up with him to get one of his favorite recipes. 

His choice? A rich and succulent Chocolate Brownie.

“I’ve never been one to order a dessert.” Says Clarke of his dish. “I’d personally rather just finish with a bar of chocolate and that will do me good. However I was cooking for my friends as a farewell and celebration of me going back to touring so I thought I should probably make a dessert. I wanted something that was super easy and even if I fucked it up it would still taste good. So I came across a brownie, I modified the recipe a little bit to make it richer, more falvoursum (even if thats a word). It turned out pretty darn good so if you do make it please send me a dm @djwillclarke or my food page @willmakesyouhungry with the photos.”
