Kelly Clarkson Responds to The Idea of Having a Cooking Show: ‘I Can’t Even Make Eggs’
Reading Time: 3 minutes
Renowned chef José Andrés recently made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where he shared his experiences, passion for food, and dedication to addressing food insecurity through his organization, World Central Kitchen. However, what caught everyone’s attention was his suggestion that Kelly Clarkson should consider hosting her very own cooking show, even though she humbly admitted, “I can’t even make eggs.”
Chef José Andrés Jokes that Kelly Clarkson Should Host a Cooking Show
The segment began with Clarkson warmly welcoming Chef Andrés to her show. As a legendary chef with more than a dozen restaurants to his name and the founder of World Central Kitchen, Andrés is not just known for his culinary expertise but also for his humanitarian work. His most recent endeavor was a graphic novel about World Central Kitchen, titled Feeding Dangerously.
The conversation took an amusing turn when Clarkson brought up the “fake news” surrounding Chef Andrés’ cooking skills at home. It turns out that cooking paella in his household is considered a dangerous endeavor.
Chef Andrés went on to recount the experiences of teaching his daughters to cook paella, complete with open flames and a bit of chaos. He playfully described how the fire sometimes wanted to be part of the cooking process, even giving his daughters a “little kiss” on their eyebrows.
At this point, Clarkson couldn’t resist sharing her own culinary predicament. She admitted, “I can’t even make eggs,” which sent the audience into uproarious laughter. It was clear that Clarkson’s talent lies in her singing, not her cooking skills, and she was unashamedly proud of it.
However, Chef Andrés saw an opportunity amid the laughter. With a twinkle in his eye, he suggested a new venture: The Kelly and José Cooking Show. He playfully proposed that Clarkson could teach him to sing, and he could teach her to cook, drawing cheers and applause from the audience. Clarkson hesitantly accepted the idea, with the caveat that no one should eat her food.
They Discussed Fighting Against Food Insecurity
They also delved into Chef Andrés’ commitment to fighting food insecurity through World Central Kitchen. He shared stories of the organization’s work, feeding millions of people in crisis-stricken areas worldwide, including natural disasters and conflict zones.
The interview took an inspiring turn when two high school students, Elias and Audrey, joined the conversation. They are the founders of Kitchens for Change, an organization inspired by Andrés’ work, which focuses on combating food insecurity in their local community. Elias’s mother, Mohini, who is a culinary teacher at his high school, also expressed her pride in her son’s and Audrey’s dedication to the cause.
Furthermore, the well-known food company, Conagra Foundation has decided to contribute towards the cause. Recently, the company donated $10,000 to Kitchens for Change as a gesture of their commitment to social responsibility and community well-being.
