Lady Gaga always has something cooking! This time the pop star is working on an actual cookbook with her father, Joe Germanotta, reports V magazine.
The book, entitled Joanne Trattoria Cookbook: Classic Recipes and Scenes from an Italian American Restaurant, is inspired by Germanotta’s New York restaurant, Joanne Trattoria. The dining spot — which opened in 2012 and yes, where the RHONY cast dined in a recent episode — is a chic yet casual family eatery in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Though Germanotta has taken steps to ensure his restaurant isn’t swallowed by Gaga’s gargantuan celebrity (no Grammy pictures on the walls in this establishment), it’s still a family affair, so the namesake cookbook will feature a foreword from the Mother Monster herself. No previews have been released yet, but if the restaurant’s fare is any indication, hungry fans may expect recipes like Joanne’s meatballs, spinach artichoke dip, Papa G’s chicken and plenty of pasta.
“Family, food, and love are the foundation upon which Joe Germanotta and his wife, Cynthia, raised their daughters, Natali and Stefani (aka Lady Gaga),” reads the description from the book’s publishing company, Post Hill Press. “Named for his sister who died of Lupus three months shy of her 20th birthday, their family-run restaurant is built on those same fundamental principles. In the pages of this cookbook, Joe has collected recipes and entertaining anecdotes inspired by his world famous restaurant.”
The book is already up for pre-order on Amazon for $24, and will be released on Nov. 22. Will there be a few of the singer’s recipes between the cookbook’s pages? Well, Lady Gaga is a known foodie, so we’ve got our fingers crossed.
