Kelis Will Teach You How to Bring All the Boys to the Yard…With a New Cookbook

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.”

It sounds interesting, but the word “lifestyle” scares us since it can bring to mind terrifying comparisons to Goop, but we expect more from Kelis.

The press release said nothing of a milkshake recipe, though. We’ll have to wait and see if we can finally make what the guys go crazy for:
