Titled Mixtape Potluck, the book will imagine “the ultimate potluck dinner party.”

“He invites more than fifty chefs, entertainers, artists, thought leaders, and musicians and asks them to bring along their favorite recipes,” a statement for the book reads. “He also pairs each guest with a song that he feels best captures their unique creative energy… The result is not only an accessible, entertaining cookbook but also a collection of diverting musical commentaries.”

Among the guests featured in the book: Black Thought, Q-Tip, Jarobi White, Yvonne Orji, Maya Rudolph, and others. The book will also include a foreword by Martha Stewart.

Mixtape Potluck will drop October 15, 2019.

Earlier this year, Quest launched a plant-based cheesesteak sandwich. Questlove’s Cheesesteaks, which are made through Impossible Foods, a California-based company that develops plant-based substitutes for meat and dairy products, was first made available on March 28 when the Phillies played the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park.

“We first tested out this product at our annual Roots Picnic music festival in Philly in 2018,” Questlove previously said about the sandwich “Without any forewarning, we offered the cheesesteak in our VIP area, which was mainly populated with friends and family and no one believed me when I told them the ‘meat’ was not beef, but plant-based. My team and I saw an opportunity to roll out the product on a much larger level.”

In related news, Questlove revealed how he tried to get Nardwuar an interview with Barack Obama but it didn’t happen.
