Producers say ‘Cooked with Cannabis’ is a series that teaches viewers that ‘weed is a seasoning’ not just a drug
Kelis, the “Milkshake” singer, and ex-wife of rapper Nas, has a new cannabis cooking show on Netflix that is guaranteed to bring some boys to the yard.
The singer and chef announced her new show, Cooked with Cannabis, on her Instagram page and said she can’t wait to introduce cannabis culinary creations to a greater audience. The show launches on April 20, the day known as “Weed Day” in the cannabis world.
“Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true,” Kelis wrote on IG. “Interestingly, this was one of those things that I didn’t go looking for, it kind of came to me. As a chef, I was intrigued by the food and as an everyday person, I was interested in how powerful this topic is in today’s society. In this country, many things have been used systematically to oppress groups of people, but this is so culturally important for us to learn and grow together. I hope you all will tune in, it’s definitely going to be a good time!”
The reality show, Cooked with Cannabis, co-hosted by Kelis and Portland-based chef Leather Storrs, will feature three professional chefs preparing a three-course meal each episode based on themes. The winner, who creates the dishes against the clock, takes home $10,000.
