Her milkshake brought all the boys to the yard – but now Kelis is branching out.
After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School, the worldwide hospitality organisation, the Grammy-nominated songbird unveiled a saucy line of condiments which she dubbed Feast.
Now the R&B singer – whose hits include Tasty and Jerk Ribs – is set to launch her own TV cooking show.
The new series, Saucy and Sweet, will highlight Kelis’s dishes and recipes and reveal how she creates “food with attitude”. The Cooking Channel show will debut tomorrow.
If she didn’t have enough on her plate, Kelis’s new album has been simmering in the studio. Entitled Food (what else?) it will be released on 22 April, produced by Dave Sitek from TV On The Radio.
Kelis told reporters: “Between this and my second album, I’d say this gives the best full picture about who I am and how I hear things. As much as I can escape from music, I can’t escape from myself and the way my brain works and the things that bring me joy. It’s about nourishment, feeding your body and replenishing and recharging with all the things that we live on, like music and food and love, It’s about acknowledging the quality in which you live, and sticking to that, so it’s about the food that we eat, the music we listen to, who we listen to it with.”
