Ludacris is continuing his quest to become a master chef, as second two of Luda Can’t Cook will debut February 15 on Discovery+.

“I put 100% into everything I do, including learning how to cook, and exploring different cuisines from across the globe with world-renowned chefs has been incredible,” the Fast & Furious star says in a statement. “I’m excited for viewers to experience Haitian, Korean and Cuban food with me — and see how I put my own style into each dish.”

In each of the one-hour episodes, the rapper/actor immerses himself in a specific type of cuisine guided by an expert.

In the first episode, the 44-year-old entertainer visits Little Haiti in Miami to learn the fundamentals of Haitian cuisine from Haitian-born chef Alain Lemaire. Then he throws a block party featuring a three-course tasting menu for guests, including Chef Gregory Gourdet.

In the next episode, Ludacris teams up with Chef Seung Hee Lee in Atlanta to learn about Korean food, and then prepares a three-course meal for Chef Edward Lee and comedian Lil Duval.

Finally, the three-time Grammy winner travels to the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami to master Cuban cuisine with Chef Michael Beltran. Timbaland drops by to taste his food, and best-selling author and restaurateur Chef Lorena Garcia critiques Luda’s three course menu.
