Have you accepted the Kardashian-Jenner clan as your new overlords? The reality TV mavens have proven they're out to conquer every facet of media, from Instagram to celebrity gossip magazines to mobile apps and yes, even cooking shows.
Mother hen Kris Jenner released a cookbook in 2014 filled with Hèrmes tablescapes and truffle butter, and Khloe Kardashian recently launched a show on the FYI network called Kocktails With Khloe. Proving the apple doesn't fall far from the heavily contoured tree, youngest sister Kylie Jenner has now debuted a web series of her own called, obviously, Cooking With Kylie (but not Kooking, for some reason).
The 18-year-old reality star and Snapchat sensation may be better known for her lip injections and extensive wardrobe, but she's also a pretty good cook — at least, that's the story her famous friends tell E News. Tragically, you'll have to pay for the privilege of watching this young gastronome make magic in the kitchen: The series is part of her subscription-based personal website, thekyliejenner.com, where fans will have to cough up the low, low price of $2.99 a month to access hard-hitting features like "Shop the Selfie."
In the debut episode, Kylie takes on candied yams. Here, she introduces her young viewers to the mysterious foodstuff that is a yam, gesturing elegantly with an arm loaded down with approximately $20,000 worth of Cartier bracelets:
All the ingredients are organic, natch, except for the Aunt Jemima maple syrup (which, as ingredient purists know, is not actually maple syrup at all) and Kraft Jet Puffed marshmallows. Kylie is surprisingly engaging, due in no small part to her perfectly arched eyebrows, as well as delightfully hygienic; there will be no Chipotle-style E. coli disasters emanating from this Kardashian kitchen.
The recipe itself is nothing special, so there's probably no need to cancel your Cook's Illustrated subscription just yet. Kylie promises a second episode will be coming soon, though, so perhaps bro-in-law Kanye or walking emoji Kim will make special guest appearances.
In the meantime, there's always Kris Jenner's cookbook to fall back on; as Hugh Acheson discovered, the chicken nacho recipe is totally unmemorable and yet entirely edible.
