Filed under things you probably didn’t know about Kelis:

Sure, we all know her Billboard Hit, Milkshake, song that also propelled her album Tasty to go gold with a sell of over 500,000 copies, but did you know that Kelis is of Puerto Rican-Chinese decent on her mother’s side

Oh, and aside from having won Brit Awards, Q Awards, NME Awards, been nominated for two Grammy Awards, released six regular studio albums so far and having had 10 top ten singles in the United Kingdom alone, she is also a certified chef. Basically, Kelis is amazing.

Chef and food justice activist Bryant Terry's latest cookbook 'Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean and Southern Flavors Remixed' is scheduled for release on April 8, 2014. In this groundbreaking cookbook Terry draws from African, Caribbean, and Southern food to create over 100 enticing vegan dishes. You can pre-order 'Afro-Vegan' via AmazoniBooksGoogle Books, IndieBound and Barnes & Noble.

The national book launch party will take place in Oakland, CA at SoleSpace on April 9, 2014, but you can also check Terry as he tours throughout the US (and a few venues in the Caribbean) in support of the new book.

"Rising star chef and food justice activist Bryant Terry is known for his simple, creative, and delicious vegan dishes inspired by African American cooking. In this landmark cookbook, he remixes foods of the African diaspora to create exciting and approachable recipes such as Jamaican Patties Stuffed with Maque Choux, Berebere-Spiced Black-Eyed Pea Sliders, Crispy Teff-Grit Cakes with Eggplant, Tomatoes, and Peanuts, and Groundnut Stew with Winter Vegetables and Cornmeal Dumplings. He also explores key African ingredients that are popular in Caribbean and Southern dishes—like okra—tracing their history and giving them cultural context. Afro-Vegan will delight Bryant Terry fans; vegetarians and vegans looking for exciting new recipes; cooks interested in African, Afro-Caribbean, and Southern cuisine; and health- and eco-conscious eaters."
