Actress Ali Larter has followed in the footsteps of Gwyneth Paltrow and penned her own cookbook.
The Legally Blonde star has pieced together her best recipes and entertaining tips for new tome Kitchen Revelry: Fun, Fearless and Festive Ideas to Inspire You to Take a Bite out of Life and she's currently looking for a publisher.
According to the New York Post, the book is aimed at fans who appreciate "lipstick smudged Champagne glasses" and "a sink of beautifully dirty dishes" and Larter reveals she was first inspired to write the piece after a dinner party gone bad.
She says, "This journey started during my first, disastrous dinner party. I lived in a fourth-floor walk-up above a pub. I was lonely and trying to use it as a way to meet new people.
"My insecurities got the best of me and I drank too much wine. I had my mind set on an overly complicated dish... I just wish I had found laughter through the tears. Mistakes happen... burn, cry, reapply!"
