Kelis’ ‘Cooked with Cannabis’ Show Debuts Today on Netflix

*In case you didn’t know, singer and chef, Kelis is hosting a cannabis cooking show for Netflix that dropped today (04-20-20). 

“Cooked with Cannabis” is a new six-episode, cooking competition show that will challenge three professional chefs with whipping up a three-course, cannabis-infused dinner. The series will feature guests ranging from El-P, Ricki Lake, comedian Mary Lynn Rajskub and Too Short

Kelis issued the following statement about the show, “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.” 

The singer will host the show alongside Leather Storrs, a popular chef from Portland, Oregon.

Thee professional chefs will create meals that will have a different theme, such as world cuisine or futurist food – but they must include cannabis in the dish. 

Each meal will then be judged by Kelis, Leather, and a guest judge. 

The winning chef will win a $10,000 cash prize.

“Many of the chefs used the plant in non-psychoactive ways: as a flavouring, as a puree in fresh tortillas, or blended into a flour,” Leather told Food & Wine. “This is a show for food people, for stoners and for folks that are curious about both.”
