Vegetarians will be happy to know that Blossom Music Center will offer Questlove’s Cheesesteak made with Impossible plant-based meat this summer.

Later this month, the James Beard Foundation Book Award nominee will make his first proper foray into the food industry as he introduces the sandwich at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on opening day. The sandwich will be sold at all 81 home games for the Phillies.

It'll also be available on the menu at Blossom when Live Nation's summer concert season starts.

“We first tested out this product at our annual Roots Picnic music festival in Philly in 2018," says Questlove in a press release. "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. My team and I saw an opportunity to roll out the product on a much larger level. 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. 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.”
