Two-time Grammy winning songstress Patti LaBelle has stepped into Cooking Channel’s kitchen with her latest culinary series Patti LaBelle’s Place.

Produced by New Jersey-based Powerhouse Productions, the six-part series will see the “Lady Marmalade” singer replace her microphone with ladles to personally invite viewers into her kitchen. With a handful of celebrity friends, LaBelle will cook up such comfort foods as slow-cooked brisket, spicy garlic sautéed chicken breasts, garlicky broccoli rabe and cornmeal fried catfish.

Featured celebrity guests include British singer-songwriter Estelle, gospel artist Kirk Franklin, rapper 50 Cent, CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King, actor Ta’Rhonda Jones, chef Carla Hall, NBA player J.R. Smith for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Canadian fashion stylist Joe Zee.

Patti LaBelle’s Place bows with back-to-back episodes Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. ET/PT on the Scripps Interactive Networks-owned Cooking Channel.

“The one-of-a-kind Patti LaBelle’s talents in the kitchen are right up there with her talents on-stage,” said Didi O’Hearn, senior VP of programming for Food Network and Cooking Channel, in a statement. “The happiness Patti gets from sharing her favorite dishes with her guests is a joy to watch.”
