In honor of Kelis‘s new album, Food, VH1 had her break down essentials when it comes to the kitchen. While the singer is known for her hits on the radio, she’s also turning up the heat in the kitchen for a number of years. After graduating from the culinary school, Le Cordon Bleu, Kelis has written a cookbook as well as launched a sauce line (called Feast) and starred in a cooking TV special on the Cooking Channel. This is one singer who knows her food! But just don’t ask her to do the dishes.
