Culinary beauty talks cooking goals

Kelis' milkshake may bring all the boys to the yard, but now she's actually whipping them up in the kitchen.

The singer, turned chef now has her eyes set on "Iron Chef."

The culinary beauty, who just released her book "My Life On A Plate," says she would love to appear on the competition cooking show.

“I would love to do the show but … I cook at my leisure right now and I remember when I graduated from culinary school and when I was working on a line at a restaurant I was so fast because I was seasoned to be that way,” Kelis tells Page Six. “I’m not as fast as I was back then. I would need to get back into that frame of mind.”

“Those guys are beasts and they are so fast and so good,” she continued. “I could be really creative, but definitely moving at my own pace right now. I definitely want to get my chops up.”


And in case you were wondering who she would love to cook for--you'd be surprised.


“The only person I could think of is Jesus,” she said, laughing, but said she's not sure what she would cook. “We would have to talk about it.”
