The culinary arts have been a recurrent theme in Kelis’ oeuvre—with albums entitled Tasty and Food and singles like “Milkshake” and “Jerk Ribs,” news that she’s coming out with a cookbook should come as no surprise. Especially since she studied at Le Cordon Bleu during a hiatus from music, has a line of sauces, and hosts a show on The Cooking Channel (yeah, we didn’t know any of that either…thanks, Wikipedia!)
Entitled My Life on a Plate: Recipes From Around the World, Kelis’ cookbook comprises recipes that run the gamut from Southern soul food, Caribbean, and Asian cuisines, as well as some new, eclectic dishes formulated by the singer-chef.
In a statement, the musician-cum-chef said of My Life on a Plate:
“It’s an exploration of tastes and cultures, and my experience as a chef, musician, mother and wife. It’s a lifestyle, and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.”
