David Bowie’s Puttanesca Recipe

There’s no doubting Philadelphia’s connection to David Bowie, from Sigma kids like Doobies owner Patti Brett to the influence the musician had on Philly-born supermodel Gia Carangi. The personal connections are strengthened through Bowie’s Philadelphia recording of “Young Americans” and the live album he recorded at the Tower Theater. But did you know about Bowie’s other contribution to Philadelphia? In the late eighties, Bowie contributed a Penne Puttanesca recipe to the WMMR Rock N Roll Celebrity Cookbook.

Well he did, though he wasn’t that precise with the measurements.

If you want a copy of the cookbook, there are two used copies available on Amazon.
