Beyonce To Publish Soul Food Cookbook Despite Kitchen Incompetence? [UPDATED]

UPDATE: Beyonce's publicist told that Beyonce has no plans for a cookbook. "This is untrue," she said.

PREVIOUS: Beyonce Knowles plans to publish a soul food cookbook, a source told the Daily Mirror. The singer was inspired by her mother, who prepares a spread of collard greens, cornbread, macaroni and cheese and fried chicken no matter where in the world they were.

Beyonce's other inspiration is none other than fellow recent cookbook author Gwyneth Paltrow. The two friends have spoken and Paltrow has been encouraging.

The only problem is that Beyonce has previously admitted that she isn't such a great cook, and that she doesn't really enjoy it. In fact, Beyonce says she's a disaster in the kitchen.
