Kelis to cook for her fans

Kelis will cook for fans at London's OnBlackheath Festival.

The 35-year-old singer - whose sixth studio album 'Food' was released last year - is also a certified chef and has been booked to serve up treats to hungry music lovers at the event.

She said: "I love London and can't wait to cook and play at OnBlackheath Festival! I hope everyone comes out for a good time."

The 'Milkshake' hitmaker, who trained as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu cookery school, previously cited British food gurus Nigella Lawson and Gordon Ramsey as her inspirations.

She said: "I like to think of myself as more of a Nigella, she's dope, but I'm probably more of a Gordon. Food allows me to be right, and I love that."

Other acts to perform but not cook at the festival, which takes place on 12 - 13 September, include Elbow, Madness, Manic Street Preachers and Laura Mvula who will all get the opportunity to taste Kelis' culinary delights.

Blackheath Common SE3 will be sprinkled with Chefs from the likes of Hemsley & Hemsley, DJ BBQ, Calagary Anvansion, the Fabulous Baker Brothers and YouTube sensation 'Food Busker' John Quilter.
