On 4/20, a new Netflix cannabis cooking competition show featuring Kelis as co-host will be released. The musician and chef announced her involvement in “Cooked with Cannabis,” which is a show where food is prepared in creative ways with marijuana.
“Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true. 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” Kelis said.

I'm really excited to announce my new show, Cooked with Cannabis on @Netflix!! Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true. 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! We launch on 4/20! XO, Kelis
Chef Leather Storrs will co-host the six-episode series with Kelis. The episodes will feature three contestants looking to impress judges by creating unique dishes, seasoned with cannabis.
Kelis has mad a name for herself outside the music industry in the culinary scene as a chef. She attended Le Cordon Bleu culinary school, and hosted a culinary series “Saucy and Sweet” on the Cooking channel in 2014, then released the cookbook “My Life on a Plate” the following year.
Kelis also recently announced the 20th-anniversary re-release of her debut album, Kaleidoscope. Alongside the album is a tour to promote it, but the tour has been postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak.
