Neo-soul and hiphop musician as well as legendary music producer, Questlove, may not be the first person you would think of when it comes to writing about food. However, over the past few years the Roots band member has been proving himself to be a serious food enthusiast, running a chicken shop in NYC’s Chelsea Market as well as hosting so-called ‘food salons’ from his home in Lower Manhattan where prestigious chefs come in and cook for a privileged and eclectic group of guests.
Now, Questlove has announced that he will be releasing a book, ‘somethingtofoodabout: Exploring Creativity with America’s Most Innovative Chefs’, in which he will muse over the creative processes of cooking with certain experts in the industry described by Chris Crowley at Grub Street as “food world luminaries”, including Nathan Myhrvold, author of Modernist Cuisine.
The book comes out in April 2016.
