NEWS: Kelis Shows Off Her Culinary Skills at a Private Dinner

Last night musician Kelis hosted a dinner presented by Belvedere Vodka to celebrate the launch of her upcoming album Flesh Tone and to reveal her unknown passion, cooking.  Held in a private bungalow at the W South Beach, Kelis welcomed guests including Interscope-Geffen-A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, DJ Benny Benassi, DJ Rashida, Chicago Bears player Adewale Ogunieye , Kansas City Chiefs player Thomas Jones, DJ/musician Calvin Harris, Burns, Jack Splash and more, to try the menu she created and prepared herself.  Kelis told her guests that awhile back she decided to take a step away from music and went to culinary school, where she found her a new love, cooking.  Kelis is now on top of both of her games– music and cooking– and together they made a night to remember.  In addition to the delicious food, which Benny Benassi and others raved about, guests were the first to hear Kelis’ new album while sipping Belvedere cocktails.
