Sharing a picture of her Netflix-inspired nails, Kelis admitted she’s very excited about the new gig. “Anyone that knows me knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true.”
She continued, “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.”
Cooked with Cannabis will feature six episodes, to be co-hosted alongside weed chef Leather Storrs. In each episode, three professional chefs will compete for a $10,000 prize by cooking a three-course cannabis-infused meal. The show will include dinner guests as well, with appearances by Too $hort, Ricky Lake, and Run The Jewels’ El-P. The first episode will air next month, on 4/20.
