The series challenges chefs to include some sticky icky in their recipes.

Kelis long ago proved to be as good a chef in the kitchen as she is in the studio. But next month, she's bringing her culinary skills to a higher level with the debut of her weed-infused Netflix series Cooked With Cannabis. The series, co-hosted by the "Milkshake" singer and Portland chef Leather Storrs, will feature professional chefs working against the clock to whip up a tasty themed three-course meal with sticky icky as the special ingredient.

And it debuts on April 20, of course.

"Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true," the singer wrote in an announcement post. "Interestingly, this was one of those things that I didn't go looking for, 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, but this is so culturally important for us to learn and grow together. I hope you all will tune in, it's definitely going to be a good time!"

The singer, who has not released an album since 2014's Food, recently appeared on the UK version of The Masked Singer. This is not her first foray into food TV, either, coming on the heels of her 2014 Cooking Channel series Saucy and Sweet and the release the next year of her first cookbook My Life on a Plate.
