Mixtape Potluck Cookbook: A Dinner Party for Friends, Their Recipes, and the Songs They Inspire by Questlove ($19.58)
The musician, frontman and drummer of The Roots, music journalist, instructor, disc jockey, and more is best known for his achievements and passion for music. However, his interest and passion for food is also well known. All these loves culminated in a cookbook where Questlove imagines inviting more than fifty chefs, entertainers, and musicians (notably Eric Ripert, Maya Rudolph, and Q-Tip) for the ultimate potluck. Along with their favorite recipes, Questlove also assigns each person and their recipe a song that he feels “best captures their creative energy.” This unique cookbook provides insight into the Questlove’s love of food, music, and entertaining and explores the relationship between food, culture, and of course, love.
What if Questlove threw a dinner party and everyone came?
If I didn’t love Maya enough already, I fell head over heels in love with her all over again because of her chili. Anyone who combines chocolate chips and Fritos is a hero. Be a hero yourself. Bring her dish to your next potluck.
Easy Veggie Party Quiche (That Will Blow Everyone’s Minds)
Amy recommends not making your own piecrust, which saves time. Bonus: You can make a nice side salad by squeezing the juice from the lemon over some mixed greens.
Braised Osso Bucco with Fennel Soffritto
Serve this dish alongside your favorite loaf of bread, and if you want, bring roasted potatoes or polenta—that gives you a whole meal.
