American pianist Leslie Pintchik released her album You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl in February 2018. Writing in AllAboutJazz, Dan Bilawsky said 'If they gave out awards for album titles, this one would surely be in the running for top leslie Pintchik You Eat My Foodhonors. "You eat my food, you drink my wine, you steal my girl" is a harsh and odd phrase that rolls off the tongue like some sort of backwoods country accusation-turned-lament, but its origins are far more urban in nature".

The story is that Leslie Pintchik found the album title in one of those "only in New York" moments. While crossing Canal Street at West Broadway in the SoHo section of Manhattan, she heard a voice behind her yell, "You eat my food, you drink my wine, you steal my girl!"

Leslie Pintchik is a graduate of Columbia University, where she studied 17th century English literature. Having then worked as a teaching assistant, she decided to leave academia and pursue a new career as a pianist. She went on to develop her playing with Bruce Barth before playing public gigs and then landed a steady job playing for the brunch crowd at Bradley's in New York City's Greenwich Village. There she met Red Mitchell who invited Leslie and her husband, Scott Hardy, to play with him on stage. Leslie leads her own trio with Scott Hardy on bass and Michael Sarin on drums and, among other venues, they perform regularly at Jazz at Kitano in New York City.

You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl is her seventh album.
