While many know Questlove for his musical exploits — namely being the joint frontman for Grammy Award-winning band The Roots — his Food Salon series highlights his profound appreciation for the culinary arts. For those unaware, Questlove’s Food Salon finds the country’s best chefs cooking for star-studded guest lists. This is ultimately the premise behind the 48-year-old musician’s new cookbook, Mixtape Potluck.

Mixtape Potluck serves as Questlove’s imagining of the ultimate potluck dinner. He has called on more than fifty chefs, entertainers, artists, thought leaders, and musicians to provide their favorite recipes for the book, as he then pairs each guest with a song that captures their creative energy. Contributors range from Jimmy Fallon and Q-Tip, to Tom Sachs and Natalie Portman, among many others. Mixtape Potluck opens with a forward from none other than Martha Stewart and concludes with Questlove’s how-to on making the perfect playlist.

With photography by Marcus Maddox, Mixtape Potluck releases on October 15 for $30.

& here it is: book number 1,2,3,fo,FiF!!” My first cookbook (drumroll please!) #MixtapePotluck I mixed together my passion for music & food by bringing together over 50 of my pals– a mix of chefs, entertainers, artists, thought leaders & musicians – for the ultimate potluck party. They brought the recipes. I brought the music by pairing each personality with what I think best reflects them. Together we vibe with good food and music and highlight the beautiful synergies between the two. Special s/o to @MarthaStewart for the foreword, you could say she knows a little something about potlucks 🙃🙃🙃 Photography by @marcus.xoxo. Cover by @baronvonfancy and @jeanette_birdy.
