The multi-faceted Drew Barrymore has teamed up with chef Pilar Valdes to release her first-ever cookbook, which will be titled Rebel Homemaker: Food, Family, Life.
The Charlie’s Angels star announced the launch during an episode of her talk show, The Drew Barrymore Show. I feel like I’m about to burst because I’m so excited to tell everyone about it. It feels like a birth announcement. So you all know at this show, if you’ve ever watched it, how much we love cookbooks, how much we embrace it. And we have Cookbook Club, which is a very important part of the show. So guess what? We wrote a cookbook!”
Drew said she decided to team up with Valdes, whom she met through food, on the book because she was inspired by how food and Valdes' friendship were "a huge saving grace ... and something I could hook into when my life felt so floating." The cookbook will reach stores on November 2.
The actress, talk-show host, entrepreneur, memoir author, producer and mom recently partnered with Bauer Media Group to launch a lifestyle magazine called Drew.
“I have a picture of myself in my bedroom and it’s like floor to ceiling and wall to wall. I’ve always loved magazines because of the paper and the experience. Magazines are such a huge part of my life and they’re such a huge part of my inspiration for everything I do,” said Drew
She added that the magazine will be "very personal" and much like her TV show it will aim to provide some much-needed "optimism". The magazine will hit stands in June
