The next step in Questlove's search for a good cook is taking place at Vintage Wine Bar, Sunday April 3. The Mighty Afro has selected the chefs who will compete to cook for The Roots at The Roots Picnic on June 4, and now they go at it gladiator style to see who will be "The One."
Quest has hand-picked nine chefs to produce a family style meal for 25 of his closest friends and family, with the only requirement being that one of the dishes must be "Questlove's Drumsticks." Each competitor will be given one hour to shop at Whole Foods on South Street, followed by three hours to prep and serve their dishes a la Top Chef.
The competitors include Scott Schroeder (The South Philly Taproom), Eric Paraskevas (Terra), Jen Zavala (Top Chef alum), Kenny Bush (Bistrot La Minette), Anthony Leo, Brian Tucker, Clara Park, Nick Wilson, and the mysterious Elita B.
Sadly, the public is not allowed into the event, but you can follow the action live via Twitter @CookForQuest, or right here @TheFeastPHI. [The Feast]
