DJ Escoffier brings you Toasty Jams. Enjoy and stay safe.

The Daily Meal first and foremost wishes everyone safe passage through the eye of the Frankenstorm, but on the off chance that you’re landlocked today with tons of misplaced pep in your step, here’s a food-themed mixtape dreamt up by the alias of DJ Escoffier. What lies within is a playlist meant to keep things nice and toasty, the result of crate-digging (all right, mp3-digging) and a modicum of experience with audio equipment combined with a zeal for all things edible. The tracks range in genre and tempo, including artists like Master P, Elvis Presley, and even Raffi and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. If that doesn’t make you want to get up and sauté, nothing will. Now who wants to party?

(Ed. note: given the nature of the storm, partying is clearly the last thing on everyone's minds. We hope that this may provide some small amount of comfort through music. Readers are encouraged to donate to the American Red Cross.)
