The notoriously easy-going Bronx-bred rapper peeved a pro chef as she tried sushi for the first time.

The hitmaker’s causal, joke-heavy personality was on full display as she tried the Japanese delicacy, seemingly annoying Chef Vallerie Castillo. “This sushi I made is good,” she declared while doing a happy dance. In a cutaway scene, the professional chef said, “I caught her sneaking something. I don’t let staff do it and I can’t believe she did that.” There were similar instances throughout the episode after that, with Catillo adding, “Cardi’s eating as she’s cooking. I told her not to, but she’s Cardi B, so what am I gonna do, right?”
Sharing the scene from the episode to her Instagram, Cardi didn’t seem too bothered by Castillo’s disapproval for her food etiquette, penning in her caption, “Chef Val was so mad that I kept eating the food. But what can I say the food taste good,” before asking fans how they felt about the latest episode of the series. Castillo was ultimately impressed with Cardi’s sushi boat by the end of the episode, adding, “Actually, that wasn’t too bad for a beginner.”
