Questlove is focusing his talents on the food world in his latest venture, announcing today the release of his upcoming book, Mixtape Potluck. The renowned The Roots frontman has enlisted a troupe of celebrities to add their special ingredients to the literature, which he describes as "a dinner party for friends, their recipes, and the songs they inspire."
Food industry vet Martha Stewart will provide a foreword on the book, while more than 50 figures across several different industries were invited to submit their recipes. Names including Tom Sachs, Jimmy Fallon, Q-Tip and Gabrielle Union are all included in the mix. In the fashion realm, notables Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, who recently parted ways with KENZO after eight years, are also listed as part of the project. Musical commentary is interspersed throughout, while Questlove wraps the book up with tips for the "perfect playlist."
Mixtape Potluck will retail for $30 USD and is slated to release on October 15 via ABRAMS Books.

& 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. Out on Oct. 15th via @abramsbooks. Pre-order your copy today where books are sold. Link in Bio. #QuestLovesFood Special guest contributors include: #AmyPoehler
