Questlove Aims To Revolutionize A Philly Staple: The Cheesesteak

The legendary musician is also a foodie and now he has his own signature cheesesteak.

(AllHipHop News) Questlove reps all things Philly and now he's offering up his take on something held near and dear to residents of the city - the cheesesteak.

The Roots frontman and James Beard Award nominee is rolling out "Questlove's Cheesesteak," made with Impossible Foods' plant-based meat.

The Grammy Award-winning musician discovered Impossible Foods' Impossible Burger back in 2015.

He was so impressed with the Silicon Valley company's mission to become the world's largest manufacturer of sustainable foods, that he decided to invest in the company in 2017.

“We first tested this product at our annual Roots Picnic music festival in Philly in 2018. Without any forewarning, we offered the Cheesesteak in our VIP area which was mainly populated with friends and family and no one believed me when I told them the 'meat' was not beef, but plant-based," Questlove revealed.

"My team and I saw an opportunity to roll out the product on a much larger level," Questlove said.

The Questlove’s Cheesesteak will launch at Citizens Bank Park during the Phillies' home opener on March 28 and will be sold at all 81 home games for The Phillies.

Later this summer Quest's cheesesteak will be listed on the menu at 40 Live Nation owned and operated venues across North America.

"To have the Phillies and Live Nation as our initial partners is great as it speaks to my love for my hometown of Philadelphia combined with my love of music," Questlove said. "However, the goal for this product is to create a global network of restaurants, venues, and retail locations where Questlove's Cheesesteak can be purchased.”
