I previously featured Supper, a Spotify app that pairs food and music.  Supper pairs recipes with playlists, and their selections are curated by experts in each field.

Now Supper has found a guest curator who is an expert in both music AND food… Kelis.

Kelis has taken over Supper to promote her new album Food, dropping on April 22nd.  The album fittingly features songs called “Breakfast”, “Cobbler”, “Jerk Ribs”, etc.

Did you know that Kelis is a certified Le Cordon Bleu trained chef?  The fact that she drove around SXSW handing out homemade “Jerk Ribs” suddenly makes even more sense to me.

Kelis is letting us in on both her recipes and her music taste. On Supper, Kelis shares her recipes for apple farro, jerk ribs, new york vanilla bean cheesecake, and more. She’s paired this with playlists for both cooking and eating. In addition, Kelis has chosen some of her favorite restaurants to share recipes and playlists as well.

I really appreciate the thought and passion that’s gone into this partnership between Supper and Kelis. It’s genuinely made me excited for the release of Food. I saw Kelis at SXSW, and was extremely impressed, but getting a view into her combined passion for food and music has made the album release a little more personal.

    I have to admit I almost completely dismissed Kelis based on having only heard “Milkshake”, but I gave her first single of Supper, “Rumble”, a listen after I saw it is being released off of Ninja Tunes — and I am so glad I did. Can’t wait to listen to this album in its entirety next week!

      Yes! I often forget that “Milkshake” was a part of her career. So glad you listened.

      I also recommend her second, Neptunes-produced album “Wanderland” and especially the song Young, Fresh N’ New.”
