Kelis To Partner With Only Jerkin’ And Serve Food From New Menu In UK Exclusive At Jam On Rye

Fresh from unveiling Kelis as headlining their musical bill, Jam On Rye reveal that the singer turned critically acclaimed chef will be partnering with Only Jerkin’ to serve an exclusive menu throughout the day on Monday 27th May 2019.

After announcing an impressive musical bill and diverse food programme, the festival is serving another unmissable treat for food lovers and RnB fans alike. Only Jerkin’, one of KERB’s leading traders, will unite with the headliner to create a unique menu especially for the day, which Kelis will serve from a converted food truck for lucky festival goers. Famous for hits such as ‘Milkshake’, ‘Trick Me’ and ‘Millionaire’, the multi-selling superstar has explored a burning passion for food in recent times, releasing recipe book My Life On A Plate and her own sauce brand, Bounty And Full.

While the menu boasts mouthwatering dishes such as Jamaican salt fritters, pineapple saffron glazed boneless chicken ‘wings’ and ginger sesame glazed cauliflower wings, all meals will be accompanied by a serving of Kelis’ very own sauce, as well as plantain fries and hot pepper pickle & pineapple. This is a one-off opportunity for 2019 and a hugely exciting exclusive to Jam On Rye, not to be tasted anywhere else in the UK. The full menu is below.
