Roots bandleader, DJ, producer and all-around Renaissance man Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson is expanding into the food game. The Philadelphia drummer is hosting a competitive cookoff at Vintage Wine Bar and Bistro in Center City this Sunday at 8. Nine chefs will have three hours to shop at the Whole Foods on South Street and cook up a family style meal that must include on essential ingredient: ?uestlove's drumsticks. Sorry, the grub will be consumed by "25 special guests," but the culinary action can be followed at @questlove and @cook4quest.

This is the first "in a  series of new food ventures ?uestlove is launching," according to Roots management. It's not like he has anything else to do, besides appearing with French-Israeli chanteuse Keren Ann at the Kimmel Center on April 17 as part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts, co-producing Booker T. Jones new The Road To Memphis (due out May 10), and hosting the 4th annual Roots Picnic, where the winner of Sunday's competition will get to cook for the band, on June 4. And oh yeah, playing with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon five nights a week.
