If you thought your grandmother’s cookbook collection stored on the kitchen counter was the best you’ve ever seen, think again. Iconic actress, entrepreneur and recently established cookbook queen Drew Barrymore has a cookbook collection and setup that will rival that of any family member you can think of. By which I mean…she has an entire room dedicated to the genre.
Taking to Instagram to share a portion of the massive collection—which, yes, is housed and showcased in its own separate closet (how insane is that?)—the 45-year-old multi-hyphenate also announced her new Instagram Live show, “Drew’s Cookbook Club.” Citing chefs as her heroes, Barrymore exclaimed, “I must read 3 cookbooks a week…cover to cover! Not just for the recipes, but also for the stories about how the authors find their inspiration. In every cookbook there is one recipe that will change your life.”
The new series, which aired its first episode Tuesday, August 11 on “The Drew Barrymore Show” Instagram account, will see the celebrated actress invite a different cookbook author whose work she enjoys to share their own work, as well as drop a few recommendations of their favorites, too. In the inaugural episode, Barrymore invited revered 19-year-old Black author Haile Thomas to discuss her plant-based cookbook, Living Lively, chat about her favorite books and demo one of her delicious recipes: matcha ice cubes.
So yeah, if Drew Barrymore wasn’t on the list of your all-time favorites before, she absolutely should be now. Because who doesn’t love a good cookbook
