For Wynnewood's own Patti LaBelle, sweet potato pies were only the beginning. The Godmother of Soul will soon host her own cooking show.
Dubbed Patti LaBelle's Place, the six-episode cooking series is set to debut on the Cooking Channel at 11 a.m. Dec. 3.
The show will air in two-episode blocks each week, and will feature a strong roster of celebrity guests, including rapper 50 Cent, Oprah BFF Gayle King, musician Kirk Franklin, gospel singer Erica Campbell, stylist Joe Zee, and others.
Those guests will help LaBelle cook some of her signature dishes, including fried chicken and catfish, along with more playful dishes like the Philadelphia native's "sauteéd green beans a La Bella" and "Patti's Secret Homemade Salad Dressing," according to a release.
"I want to taste Patti live," Wright said in last year's viral YouTube video before breaking out into song. "You turn into Patti after eating this."
