Munchery and Google Play Music Create the Perfect Soundtrack for Dinner
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — August 17, 2015 — Munchery, the leader in high-quality meal delivery, and Google Play Music today announce a new music experience in the kitchen, using the perfect stations to make any meal better. Munchery chefs will prepare custom meals inspired by Google Play Music radio stations for a dinner and dance party spanning all genres and cuisines.
“Taste and sound both have a special way of bringing people together, so it felt natural to connect them in one simple, fun experience,” said Munchery VP of Food Nicolas Bernadi. “We want people to be excited about mealtime – everything from our locally-sourced ingredients to the mood, soundtrack and environment.”
Each Munchery+Google Play Music menu item will correspond with a similarly themed playlist curated on Google Play Music based on different moods, times of day and activities.
