Rihanna is preparing for release day, but it’s not the type of release many fans may be thinking of. During a recent interview, the pop star confirmed that she is working on a cookbook. Initial reports suggest that the book will be full of Caribbean recipes and ways to make some of her favorite comfort foods like macaroni and cheese and shepherd’s pie.
Much of the cookbook was formulated while Rihanna was forced inside due to the pandemic. Instead of moving around the world, she’s remained inside and worked from home like many others.
“At first it was strange because I am not used to being still—but during quarantine, you have no choice but to be still,” she said.
“Then you start to realize during lockdown you are stuck there with your own thoughts and your imagination and it really helped my creativity blossom.”
She will have time to enjoy some of her favorite dishes over the holidays. The pop star has returned home to Barbados to enjoy time with her family.
“It’s important to be with friends and family—but I feel at such peace when I am there,” she added.
“It is the most beautiful place, with incredible, beaches, food and people.”
At this time, there is no word as to when the cookbook will be released.
