My Life on a Plate by Kelis
Hand Signed by Kelis to the End Paper
Hardback 1st Edition
New & Unread
With Kelis's diverse background - her mother is half Chinese, half Puerto Rican and her father is African-American - her foodis a melting pot of Southern soul food, Caribbean and Asian cuisine. She also experiments with spices and exotic seasonings, influenced by her travels while supporting her albums.
My Life on a Plate features a range of recipes and flavours, from American comfort food classics such as Jerk Ribs with Spicy Brown Sugar Rub and Peach Blackberry Buckle to the more inspiring Jumbo Shrimp with Tomato Fricassee & Strawberries and Goat's Cheese Ice Cream, plus her signature sauces such as Mango Mustard Sauce and Ginger Sesame Glaze (with Shrimp). Kelis says, 'As much as my music is who I am, so is my cooking. Food has become such a way of life, sort of like what you listen to, who you're with, what you're wearing. My character comes through in my cooking.'
About the Author: A charismatic singer and songwriter who, for several years, was closely associated with the Neptunes, Kelis arrived at the tail-end of the '90s and left an immediate impression with her first solo single, "Caught Out There" -- a Top Ten R&B single with a frank and screamed chorus. While her other Top Ten R&B single, 2003's Grammy-nominated "Milkshake," was also something of a novelty hit -- and also produced by the Neptunes -- Kelis released some of the most creative R&B albums of the late '90s and 2000s. In the 2010s, she took left turns that defied expectations and remained a fascinating, unpredictable artist. Between 2006 and 2010, Kelis indulged her other passion, cookery -- enrolling at and eventually graduating from Le Cordon Bleu cooking school as a fully qualified chef.
