London: Beyonce Knowles is planning to release a cookbook of soul food recipes inspired by her mother Tina.

"Her mum Tina started the tradition whereby anywhere in the world they are, she always puts on a soul food spread of collard greens, cornbread, mac `n` cheese and fried chicken. Beyonce would love to include these family recipes in a book," quoted a source as saying.

Beyonce is being encouraged to go ahead with her cookbook plans by her good friend Gwyneth Paltrow.

"As she (Beyonce) thinks about a family, she`s spoken about this with Gwyn and is raring to go," the source added.
