Top Chef: Just Desserts recently brought in a special guest: MC King Ad-Rock (also known as Adam Horovitz) of the Beastie Boys. Although by the time you're a gray-haired 40-something appearing on a cooking show, you're probably a Beastie Man. Regardless, he presented contestants with ingredients featured in Beastie Boys songs.

Just where did all those food references come from?
