The Akron Beacon Journal nailed Todd down on his food and cooking likes to discover his love or risotto.

"Once you get into cooking risotto, it's simple. I live some of the year in San Francisco and this is my speciality recipe. Get yourself a crab - with nice firm meat, like a Dungeness type-crab - and clean the shell, 'cos you want to use it for stock. Simmer it with white wine for about an hour. Use arborio rice and toast it over a hob with garlic and onions before adding the stock, with a little cream to help it emulsify. Add the crab, and a small tin of crushed pineapple, and finish with a healthy squirt of Sriracha - a hot Indonesian/Thai sauce. This is great the next day too, when it has an especially thick texture."

Todd in Scotland

"There's a 60-year-old man on stage wearing regulation rock star shades and the tightest leather trousers this side of Iggy Pop" - So Begins the Glasgow Herald's, Four star, review of Todd's gig at the Edinburh Playhouse of Friday night. It goes onto say "It's Todd Rundgren's voice that really stands out, though. After 40 years of practice, Rundgren's vocal cords have matured into a guttural roar from Hades." Meanwhile the Scotsman's reviewer felt todd was worth the full 5 stars , also picking out the vocals claiming "his relentlessly screaming rock vocals outdid even the mighty Roger Daltry in his prime."
