A group of three professional chefs will compete for a chance to win $10,000.

Netflix is officially doubling down on cooking shows. This time around, they’ll have a little help from pop star Kelis. After the success of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, and Cooking on High, Netflix will premiere its latest offering, Cooked With Cannabis.

Kelis and Portland-based chef Leather Storrs will host three professional chefs compete to make the best three-course, cannabis-infused meal for a chance at winning $10,000. She announced the news on Instagram Wednesday.

“This was one of those things that I didn’t go looking for,” she said. “It kind of came to me. As a chef, I was intrigued by the food and as an everyday person, I was interested in how powerful this topic is in today’s society.”

 

In this country, many things have been used systematically to oppress groups of people,” she said. “But this is so culturally important for us to learn and grow together.”

Celebrity guests like Ricki Lake, Too $hort and El-P will appear in the first season. The first batch of six episodes arrives on April 20.

After climbing the Billboard charts in the late 1990s, Kelis trained part-time as a saucier and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in 2008. In 2015, she released her first cookbook, My Life on a Plate. That same year, she launched her Bounty and Full line of sauces.
