Kelis has slowly been immersing herself in the food industry. After an enigmatic music career, the “Bossy” singer decided to attend Le Cordon Bleu. She would later graduate from the culinary school in 2008. From there she launched a line of sauces Bounty & Full, and in 2015 she released her first cookbook My Life on a Plate.
Now, the chef has revealed on the latest episode of “The Founder Hour” podcast that she bought a farm to expand her food empire. She wants to grow her own produce, and make dairy products. While most chefs would envision opening up a restaurant, Kelis went on to explain why she made the decision.
“I need a space where I can actually be creative and I can do this on a daily basis. That being really necessary for me. I decided yeah, well how do I do that in staying with who I am and in the realm of control that I like to have. So I felt like, you know what, let’s do a farm. We started looking for a farm. We found a property. And we’re going to start to grow everything.”
