Netflix has announced some of its new programming for the upcoming month — and one of the new shows is hosted by Kelis!
The singer and chef will host Cooked with Cannabis with Leather Storrs. The six-episode series will chronicle the making of some of the finest delicacies infused with cannabis.
Every episode will see three chefs work to cook a three-course meal with cannabis. The winner gets $10,000.
I'm really excited to announce my new show, Cooked with Cannabis on @Netflix!! As a chef, I was intrigued by the food + as an everyday person, I was interested in how powerful this topic is in today's society. I hope you all will tune in, it'll be a good time! We launch on 4/20! pic.twitter.com/zLzOvsTAO8

“Cooked with Cannabis is a show where weed is a seasoning rather than the reason. It's granular, educational, heartfelt and smart," Storrs said to Food & Wine. "The contestants had personal and romantic relationships with the herb and they knew its intricacies: medically, chemically, spiritually and as an intoxicant. Further, there was a real sense of community and camaraderie."
“It [the show] moved your heart in ways you didn't expect it to, because it is so culturally important," she said. In this country, there are so many things that have been used systematically to oppress groups of people, so this could be all fun and games, but you look at it and go, you know what, this is important. People's lives have been affected in a really positive and negative way, and how do we take some control back?"
Cooked with Cannabis begins streaming on Netflix in April 2020.
