Kelis to Release Cookbook “My Life on a Plate”

"Hey guys, are you hungry? My mom made food."

Last year, R&B singer Kelis released Food, a swampy, horn-swaddled album whose songs read like a pretty excellent soul-food menu: “Breakfast,” “Jerk Rib,” “Hooch,” “Cobbler,” “Friday Fish Fry,” “Biscuits ‘n’ Gravy.” (It’s admittedly possible that “Hooch” isn’t about cheap whiskey.)

Kelis-2015-My_Life_on_a_PlateAfter having delivered Food to fans at SXSW via food truck and putting together her own specials for the Cooking Channel, Kelis is taking the logical next step: releasing a cookbook. But this isn’t exactly Jewel’s book of poetry. Between albums, Kelis studied at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu and is a certified saucier with her own line of sauces. My Life on a Plate features recipes from around the world, focusing primarily on Southern soul food, Carribean, and Asian cuisine, according to the book’s description. No word on whether there’s a recipe for milkshakes.

Kyle Books is bringing out My Life on a Plate on September 7.
