Whether you know her as the screaming woman on “Caught Out There”, or from the cheeky lyrics of “Milkshake” or for being the ex-wife of rapper Nas, you will always connect Kelis to rap, hip hop and music. Chances are you will also describe her as a loud, strong and independent woman, much a feminist. However, Kelis has started a whole new journey in life and is now surrounding herself, very unexpectedly, with pots and pans.
After taking a Cordon Bleu training in 2008, Kelis is now a chef with her very own pop up restaurant in London. You can also catch her cooking up your next meal at festivals in the UK this summer. That’s a large change from music.
In food, she mixes up her Caribbean/American roots with whatever she’s tasted while travelling the world.
