Pamela Anderson has authored a number of books through the years, including New York Times bestseller Love, Pamela, Star Struck, and Patches of Life, among others. But now, she’s venturing into a brand-new literary domain with the upcoming release of her debut cookbook, I Love You by Pamela Anderson.

The 56-year-old announced the news to her 3.4 million Instagram followers on Wednesday, April 3. She teased the cover of the cookbook, featuring herself in a casual T-shirt and jeans, makeup-free, seated on her kitchen counter next to a vegetable-topped pizza.

She also revealed that the cookbook came about organically, originally created for her sons, Brandon Thomas and Dylan Jagger. (The cookbook title reflects this personal touch.)

“Today, I’m thrilled to share with you all a labor of love,” she captioned the Instagram post.

“What started out as a housewarming gift for my boys—a box of recipe cards, simply titled ‘I LOVE YOU’… grew into a project that encapsulates all our favorite things. A lifestyle cookbook; nothing fancy, just updated, plant-based family recipes; and entertaining with a humble kind of joy. It celebrates the magic of scenic settings where nature always has a proud seat at the table.

I can’t wait for it to be in all of your homes, from our family to yours.”

The recipe will feature more than 80 plant-based recipes that align with Anderson’s vegan lifestyle—and it’s already available for pre-order. It will officially be available for purchase on October 15.

The product description for the book reads: “Her recipes are a testament to the fact that cooking only with vegetables can be both indulgent and comforting, offering a luxurious fantasy experience. Among the dishes teased in the Instagram post are the aforementioned pizza and a delectable-looking berry pie.

The cookbook was partly photographed in Anderson’s own kitchen, according to People. Per the outlet, readers can anticipate illustrations by Anderson herself, along with nods to her other interests beyond plant-based cooking, such as sustainable design and gardening.

Anderson has been no stranger to headlines recently. For instance, during Paris Fashion Week in October 2023, she celebrated her natural beauty by attending shows and events without makeup.

She shared a photo of her street style outside The Row runway show on Instagram, looking radiant in a three-piece pinstripe suit.

“An adventure in Paris with fresh eyes…” she captioned the post. “There is beauty in self acceptance, imperfection and love.”

That wasn’t her only statement about her decision to forego glam. Last fall, she discussed her choice with Vogue, telling that outlet that she’s not against wearing makeup but simply didn’t feel like it that day. “Once I put the clothing on, I thought, ‘I’d rather go for a walk and look at the architecture of Paris rather than sit in the makeup chair for three hours,” she said.

“I know I wasn’t making strides toward world peace, but I was making a statement,” she continued. “I just thought, ‘I’m doing this for all the girls out there.’ I’ve had stepdaughters in past relationships and my sons have girlfriends, and this was for them.

In this day and age, do we even know what a face looks like anymore?” she asked the interviewer. “This is it.”
