Kelis: The Sporkful Interview

Originally aired: Monday, May 5, 2014

Music superstar Kelis sang in 2003 that her milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, but today she uses dairy products for more than just innuendos. In fact, the Harlem-born singer/songwriter holds a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu and is as influenced by her mother (a caterer) as her father (a musician). Kelis's new album, Food, marries her two creative passions, bringing a retro-soul feel to songs like Jerk Ribs, Cobbler, Biscuits and Gravy, and Hooch. In cooperation with WNYC's Soundcheck, Dan sat down with Kelis to discuss her new album, the difference between making a meal and making a record, and why -- of all the tools in the kitchen -- she most identifies with the cast iron skillet. Listen to Kelis' in studio performance in its entirety on Soundcheck.
