Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson of The Roots, and bandleader for The Tonight Show, is also an author five times over. His latest book, Mixtape Potluck, is a collection of recipes from some of Quest’s friends, paired with songs he’s hand-picked for them. And it’s all garnished with tips for the perfect party playlist. Joining host Stephen Kallao today, Questlove takes us through some of his musical selections for friends like Martha Stewart, Q-Tip, and Maya Rudolph, who all contributed recipes. Plus, a giant surprise when one of his foodie friends drops in! That’s coming up, on the next World Cafe.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
