Oprah Winfrey releasing cookbook

Oprah Winfrey is releasing a cookbook.

The 62-year-old business mogul has penned the tome 'Food, Health, and Happiness: 115 On-Point Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life' and will release it on January 3, 2017.

She told PEOPLE: "As long as I can remember, I've been the kind of person who wants to share the things that make life better. When I come upon something useful, something that brings me pleasure or comfort or ease, I want everyone else to know about it and benefit from it, too. And that is how this cookbook came to be. It's my life story - the lessons I've learned, the discoveries I've made - told through food."

Recipes for foods including Unfried Chicken, Turkey Chili, Farro With Peas, Asparagus, Pesto and Cured Olives and Sustainable Chilean Sea Bass with Lemon Fennel Chutney will be included.

Oprah is not the only star to release a cookbook, Lady Gaga and her father, Joe Germanotta, have collaborated on the book 'Joanne Trattoria Cookbook: Classic Recipes and Scenes from an Italian American Restaurant', inspired by their family restaurant which opened in New York in 2012.

Travis Jones, the Executive Chef at the restaurant, tweeted: "Head on over and Get your Joanne Trattoria Cookbook full of recipes and family stories! (sic)" and shared a link to pre-order the book on Amazon, ahead of its November 2016 release.

The description on Amazon states that the book is "A collection of recipes and anecdotes, inspired by the world-famous restaurant Joanne Trattoria, owned by Joe Germanotta, father of Lady Gaga."

It adds: "Family, food, and love are the foundation upon which Joe Germanotta and his wife, Cynthia, raised their daughters, Natali and Stefani (aka Lady Gaga). Named for his sister who died of Lupas three months shy of her 20th birthday, their family-run restaurant is built on those same fundamental principles. In the pages of this cookbook, Joe has collected recipes and entertaining anecdotes inspired by his world-famous restaurant."

Lady Gaga has provided the foreword for the book.
