Beyonce Knowles wants to release her own cook book
The `Best Thing I Never Had` singer is keen to create a culinary guide which contains her mother Tina`s soul food recipes and is confident it would be very popular.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Her mum Tina started the tradition whereby anywhere in the world they are, she always puts on a soul food spread of collard greens, cornbread, mac `n` cheese and fried chicken. Beyonce would love to include these family recipes in a book."
Beyonce is being encouraged to go ahead with her cookbook plans by her good friend Gwyneth Paltrow.
The `Iron Man` actress - whose husband Chris Martin is pals with Beyonce`s spouse Jay-Z - has released her own kitchen tome, `My Father`s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness`, and thinks the R&B star should follow in her footsteps.
The source added: "As she (Beyonce) thinks about a family, she`s spoken about this with Gwyn and is raring to go."
Despite having a passion for food, Beyonce has previously admitted she isn`t the greatest cook, but tries her best and has mastered creations with one ingredient.
She said: "I took a year off and I even did some cooking, although I didn`t really enjoy that. I`m not the greatest cook - I can do things with oxtail, though."
