Tonight’s Al Roker is showing off his skills in the kitchen, but fans are preoccupied with the background noise
AL Roker has been asked by fans to start a cooking show and book after returning to Instagram to show fans how to make a hearty soup dish.
However, fans were distracted by the music Al was playing in the background.
Today’s weatherman revealed that he was inspired by the New York Times’ cooking section, which featured a recipe for beef barley soup by Melissa Clark.
The post reportedly reminded fans of Al’s cooking videos with his son Nick, which they made during the coronavirus pandemic.
Fans on social media credited the family’s cooking videos, titled What We’re Cooking, with “getting them through Covid”.
With Al’s latest cooking video, fans got a little distracted from the science of cooking with a familiar upbeat tune.
The 68-year-old presenter was adding slow-cooked beef and broth to his sautéed vegetables as Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody is heard in the kitchen.
Commenting on the finished soup, Al’s wife Deborah Roberts wrote, “This soup was epic. Thanks, dear!”
Meanwhile, fans praised both his cooking and impeccable taste in music, with one writing, “Looks delicious Al and who doesn’t love a little Chaka Khan cooking!”
Another added: “Who saw Chaka Khan playing in the background? That’s how we do it this weekend!

The video, which has garnered over 15,000 likes, saw a fan praise the recovering presenter, saying: “Nobody does it better than AL!”
His focus on making a hearty and healthy soup means his shift towards supporting his body.
Last month, the revered weatherman returned to Today after a grueling health battle that saw him hospitalized twice.
Speaking about her husband’s struggles, Deborah, 62, said Al is “a very sick man” after suffering from internal bleeding and blood clots.
Clots in his legs migrated to his lungs, believed to be a side effect of his previous battle with Covid.
He was first admitted in November and discharged on Thanksgiving, but returned just 24 hours later with more internal bleeding.
Luckily, Al was able to return to his family to relax over the holidays with his wife, saying: “It hasn’t escaped our attention that it’s a big deal for Al to be here.
“He’s a living breathing miracle.”
Discussing his ordeal, a much thinner looking Al said, “Look, I had two complicated things. I had blood clots which they think appeared after I had Covid in September.
“And then I had this internal bleeding, I lost half my blood.”
In an update on his recovery, Al said: “It was a hard blow, I’m not going to lie.
“It’s been the toughest so far and I’ve had my share of surgeries. I have many things and people to be thankful for.”
