There’s no doubt about Queen Bey’s superpowers when it comes to music, dance, and award-winning. However, have you ever wondered if she is skilled in the kitchen too? Can Beyoncé cook?
Shockingly, Beyoncé did not extend her mighty magic to her kitchen based on the words of her mum, Tina Knowles Lawson. One year ago, Tina said, “Beyoncé can’t cook,” revealing that B is in the end just another human, which suddenly made us all feel slightly better about ourselves.
Being a superstar like Queen Bey is a full-time job, and her busy life might not exactly allow her to work on her cooking skills daily, but what does her family think about that?
Despite the missing mastery in Beyoncé’s kitchen, the rest of the Knowles family have pretty good hands when it comes to cooking. Tina also commented on Solange’s cooking, saying, “there is no contest because Solange is just simply most of the time better at preparing meals.” Beyoncé seems not to bother about her mom saying it all out loud, as she likes preparing easy meals.
Back in 2006, she mentioned that her favorite foods to cook are spaghetti and sandwiches because they are simple to make.
According to the book Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story, right before B’s star started to shine, her mom was very much into making her an awesome cook. However, the ex-Destiny Child member seemed not to be as interested as her sister Solange.
She always mentioned that as long as she has her mom, she doesn’t need to cook. Her Dad Matthew Knowles added back then, “Beyoncé is gonna hire a chef when she’s a star.” Little did he know how much truth this statement held!
Beyoncé employed a live-in chef who cooks meals for her and her family daily, not only in their home but also whenever she is on tour. His name is Mike Shand, and apparently, he has been cooking for Bey since 2010.
That man must know all the cravings of this superstar! Rumor has it that this wonderful chef of Kiwi origin gets paid all in all $7.500 monthly by Jay-Z and Beyoncé for keeping them well-nourished and full of energy through their busy celebrity days.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Environment-Friendly Diet
Most famous people incorporate dieting into their fitness routine to keep themselves healthy and fit at all time, and Beyoncé is not an exception. She and her husband converted to an almost entirely vegan diet thanks to their nutritionist Mark Borges, who is closely working with their chef Mike. Mark slowly introduced vegan meals into their daily menus, and the couple ended up loving it!
Borges plan tracks how much carbon emissions one single person can save based on how many vegan meals a day they eat. Eating well and feeling good about oneself sounds very thoughtful, so points for Bey and her husband for doing this.
Beyoncé seems to have owned her inability to prepare delicious meals – she is not hiding it nor making herself look better in front of her fans, which is something we all love about her. One thing that we might envy is her skillful personal cook. Who wouldn’t want to have a chef cooking their nutritious meals everyday?
We are not the least bothered about her inability to cook just as most of her fans. If you had a schedule like hers, you will probably not have time to spend in the kitchen except if it’s necessary and in your free time. As long as she can afford to feed her family, she is all good.
Some of her fans feel the same way while others believe she ought to learn how to cook. We are sure if she eventually decides to learn how to cook, she can hire some of the best chefs in the world. Who knows? She just might become the awesome chef her mum wanted her to be.
