Late one night when we were on tour renting a house in Australia, we were looking at one of those plaques found in many kitchens worldwide. "wherever I serve my guests, they like my kitchen best". This led to the song. It was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1976 and was included on the Wings album At The Speed of Sound. The noise at the beginning is our chip pan simmering.
