Kelis Cooks at SXSW
Kelis isn't only that 'Bossy' singer who talks about her 'Milkshake.' Instead she's also a Le Cordon Bleu certified chef and cookbook author who's showing SXSW attendees in Austin, Texas her culinary skills with her very own food truck.
On Thursday (March 13), Kelis road around the streets of Austin handing out homemade dishes that included jerk ribs with jerk BBQ sauce, duck confit sliders with ginger sesame glaze, shredded beef sliders with cherry BBQ sauce and cole slaw. While fans and foodies alike lined up to try any new food truck in town, they all found out that the food is actually free!
As a means to promote her upcoming album, 'FOOD,' it only seems fitting that she would use her culinary know-how to whip up some magic to feed as many people as possibly at SXSW. Not only can they try the grub, they are also encouraged to take food pics and tag them with #KelisFoodies, which could lead to potential prizes.
If you didn't have a chance to check out her food truck, she'll be rolling around Austin on today (March 14) as well before her set this evening at the Majestic with Bishop Nehru. The show starts at 8PM.
While not all of us can be in Austin to share in the noshing, here are some photos and videos posted by tasters (and Kelis herself) of the food festivities.
