Kelis to launch cannabis cookery show

By | Published on Thursday 19 March 2020


In these strange times, we’re all going to need to stave off boredom and get more creative when cooking meals. So, Kelis’s new Netflix cookery show, ‘Cooking With Cannabis’, is perfectly timed.

“Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true”, she says of the programme in a post on Instagram. “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”, she goes on. “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”.

Set to premiere on 20 Apr – the day of the year that stoners like to celebrate stoner stuff – the show will have a competition format. Running for six episodes, it will see three professional chefs going head to head to create a three course meal, using cannabis as a key ingredient.

Presumably as the series goes on they’ll gradually become less interested in the competitive element, eventually forgetting what they are doing anyway and spending most of the rest of the programme sharing conspiracy theories. But if that doesn’t happen, one of them will take home a $10,000 prize.
