Update, April 22, 2021: It's official! Drew Barrymore is releasing her first-ever cookbook with chef Pilar Valdes, the actress's "culinary partner in crime" who often appears on The Drew Barrymore Show.

Drew and Pilar shared a look at the cookbook titled Rebel Homemaker: Food, Family, Life on Drew's talk show. It comes out on November 2, and the cover features Drew enjoying a bowl of pasta. The two collaborated on it because their friendship grew out of food and cooking. Drew even noted that food and her relationship with Pilar were "a huge saving grace" and "something I could hook into when my life felt so floating," referring to when she was moving from Los Angeles to New York.

They gave a sneak peek at what's in the cookbook, and there's no doubt it'll be a delight to look through. It seems to be filled with super-cute photos of Drew and Pilar cooking along with photos and recipes for delicious meals, of course. So...November can't come soon enough!

Original, March 9, 2021: Drew Barrymore is a woman of many talents. She's an actress, a director, a talk show host, and, apparently, a burgeoning chef! Drew said she's been getting progressively more into cooking and discovering new foods, and even hinted at releasing her own cookbook.

While Drew told PEOPLE that her mom was very into "crunchy granola, vegetables, clean eating kind of stuff." Drew said she ate that way when she lived with her as a kid and that she still eats similarly to that today. However, Drew said she wasn't super into cooking as a teen, and when she moved out at 14, she said she didn't really cook at all. Once she started traveling in her 20s, though, that changed.

"I started traveling the world, educating myself about food, learning who my favorite chefs were, and trying different restaurants. And that inspired me to then eventually start cooking in my 30s and 40s," she told the publication.

Today, she even has an entire closet full of her favorite cookbooks and has been featuring some of her favorite ones on her talk show and her Instagram with the hashtag #Drewscookbookclub. She also hinted to PEOPLE that she "might be" releasing her own one day, alongside her chef and friend Pilar Valdes. While we'll certainly be on the lookout for that (and keeping our fingers crossed!), if you want to see Drew and her family cooking, her Instagram already features her showing off some dishes she's made, products she loves, as well as what her daughter Olive makes for her. Here's hoping Olive's breakfast recipe (shown in the photo above!) is included in any upcoming cookbooks!
