<p><span></span><strong>Maria Menounos</strong> has already conquered the entertainment-reporting world and has a bestselling book under her belt -- so what's next for the <em>Access Hollywood</em> host? A cookbook! "My mother and I are collaborating on a cookbook," Maria told <em>Life & Style</em> exclusively at the Kari Feinstein Gifting Lounge in LA on June 3. </p>
So what recipes will Maria and her mom be whipping up? "It will be eclectic fare with a Mediterranean twist, because I'm Greek," the brunette beauty revealed to Life & Style. "Together my mother and I have come up with many recipes for healthy, delicious food using fresh vegetables and fruits and we want to share them with everyone! We're very excited about working together on this book. We're already very involved and it's coming along well."
Maria's first book, The EveryGirl's Guide to Life, featured a sampling of her recipes, including chicken wrapped in eggplant, black bean and mango salad, stuffed chicken, lentil soup, stuffed tomatoes, pizza salad and stuffed artichokes. But who is responsible for teaching Maria these yummy recipes? "My mom is an incredible cook -- she has taught me so much," she told Life & Style. "My grandfather was a chef in Greece, so the skills have been passed down."
