The hardest working man in show business today, heh, is none other that Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. The Roots co-founder and international man of awesomeness continues to defy the laws of time and space by fitting in more things to do than an overworked call girl with a plastic foot.
His recent book, something to food about: Exploring Creativity with America’s most Innovative Chefs, a book written in collaboration with Ben Greenman, was just nominated for the James Beard Foundation Book Award for Nonfiction. Of course, the multiple time Grammy Award winner was psyched about the news and took to his Instagram page to share his reaction with his almost 1M followers.
Look, most chef’s I know be all “meh w accolades” & that’s noble and humble. But just for 30 secs am I allowed to happy dance w being a #JamesBeard nom nom nominee for just a sec? Wow man, who knew being a fly on the wall watching others work and gathering life notes would lead to this? —case y’all head scratching occasionally I write books (working on number 4 “write” now) #SomethingToFoodAbout & #MoMetaBlues & #SoulTrain are available on @amazon. Follow my other IG @questlovesfood (& my radio show too @qls) –7$;8&392’didooskejidijdjriididssmejdiekjsjideojernrrjdxiixjxxucusisj!!!!!!!!!!!! Man this is exciting!!!
In something to food about, Quest journeys into the kitchens of 10 highly respected chefs and explores “what makes their creativity tick,” according to the publisher’s description of the book. Want to learn more about something to food about, don’t worry, we got you covered. Our illustrious founder also had some good news to share, as he revealed that he is also working on his fourth book. If Greenman and Quest win, they will certainly have to have the dopest dinner party to celebrate.
Until we find out who wins on May 1, get your boogie on and congratulate Questlove for his recent success + excitement by sharing your thoughts with him on Twitter @Questlove.
