Lydia Lunch is known as many things  singer, actress, poet  but her latest work brings her passion for cooking to the forefront. Lunch has released a cookbook entitled The Need to Feed, and those familiar with Lunch’s work will not be surprised by its humor and irreverence.

Lunch says she has been cooking for a long time, and even her name came from an early reputation for helping out on the food front: "My name is Lunch — I got the name Lunch before I had a band from hanging around with bands in New York. We were starving. I stole food, I gave it to them, they named me Lunch. Then I started performing, and we were poor  I was feeding my friends because we had to eat," she says.

Lunch believes this can be a book for anyone who wants to have a sense of humor about cooking. "It’s sassy, saucy, it’s funny, it’s sexy. And I think it’ll give you a giggle. It’s meant for the bedroom, the bathroom and the kitchen  whatever suits your preferences," she says. It also contains healthy recipes: "I tour a lot, I’m on the road, and eating out is great but eating at home when you’re on the road, you have to take care of yourself."
