Mixtape Potluck Cookbook
A Dinner Party for Friends, Their Recipes, and the Songs They Inspire
“Thank you, Questlove, for this inspired book on a theme that is having a resurgence.” —Martha Stewart, from her foreword
What if Questlove threw a dinner party and everyone came? Questlove is best known for his achievements in the music world, but his interest in food runs a close second. He has hosted a series of renowned food salons and conversations with some of America’s most prominent chefs.
Now he is turning his hand to creating a cookbook. In Mixtape Potluck Cookbook, Questlove imagines the ultimate potluck dinner party, inviting more than 50 chefs, entertainers, and musicians and asking them to bring along their favorite recipes. These recipes are usually enough to feed a dozen or more. Here are:
- Zooey Deschanel’s bok choy and cucumber salad
- J. J. Johnson’s sticky ribs
- Lilly Singh’s mother’s chicken curry
- Éric Ripert’s salmon rillettes
- Shep Gordon’s Maui onion and ginger soup
- Natalie Portman’s Greek spinach pie, using a phyllo-like a pie crust
- And dozens more!
With Questlove’s unique style of hosting dinner parties and his love of music, food, and entertaining, this book will give readers unexpected insights into the relationship between culture and food.
Note: The cover material for this book is meant to mimic the texture and tactile quality of tinfoil and is intentional.
