R&B artist Kelis, who shot to fame with her single 'Milkshake,' is focusing on other food groups. She was recently published her first cookbook, Kelis My Life on a Plate: Recipes from around the World.
Cooking runs in the family. Kelis' mom was a chef with her own catering business. The artist recalls watching her mother cook with 'military precision'.
After a decade in the music business, Kelis decided to invest in her own kitchen skills, and enrolled at the famous Le Cordon Bleu.
Kelis, who wrote her debut cookbook in six weeks, recalls the period of putting it together as manic. She says she was cooking up to 12 recipes per day.
