For years, Kelis‘ milkshakes would bring all the boys to the yard. And now, the singer is hoping to incite the same amount of devotion with her sauces. The 34-year-old musician is trading in songs for sauces with the debut of her new line called Feast, which she launched this past weekend at the Beverly Hills Food & Wine festival.

“At Feast, we want to celebrate life,” Kelis said in an official statement regarding her new venture. “And we want to do it daily. The most joyous, the most memorable, the most nostalgic moments in our lives…often times occur during a feast. Weddings, birthdays, reunions, first dates, proposals… festive food is inseparable from our most precious moments. At Feast, we believe that these moments shouldn’t be limited to only once or twice a year. At Feast, every day will be a celebration of life, love and happiness. Every day will truly feel like a special occasion. Every day will be a holiday.”

The singer became serious about her love of food after graduating from the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary school.

“I focused on being a saucier. Anything with a sauce involved, I flourished,” Kelis told The New York Times of her education. “I learned the basic French sauces like a beurre blanc or a bordelaise—really basic, classic French red and white sauces, but I would go off on my own. I spent a lot of time out of the country looking for new things to eat. I spent a summer in Malaysia and Bali and that region. I was in Penang, where everything is savory and sweet. I’d make beef and shrimp sauces infused with litchi. I started doing my own thing.”

And it seems Kelis has already put her chef skills to the test. At the launch of her last album, Flesh Tone, Kelis was in charge of all the catering. “I was judged on the album and my cooking,” she told ONTD of the 2010 soiree. “I prepared all the food—duck confit salad, coconut lobster soup, fried red snapper, ribeye, mango mousse en toile, chocolatey Grand Marnier bread pudding. Getting it wrong is not an option.”
