Lady Gaga and her dad teaming up for cookbook

Lady Gaga is teaming up with her father to release a cookbook inspired by their family restaurant, Joanne Trattoria.

The Born This Way singer is cooking up the new project with Joe Germanotta, who owns and operates the New York City eatery with his wife, Cynthia.

The Joanne Trattoria Cookbook: Classic Recipes and Scenes from an Italian American Restaurant will feature a foreword by Gaga.

A description from the book’s publishing company, Post Hill Press reads: "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 Lupus three months shy of her 20th birthday, their family-run restaurant is built on those same fundamental principals.

"In the pages of this cookbook, Joe has collected recipes and entertaining anecdotes inspired by his world famous restaurant.”

Joanne Trattoria has held a special place in New York native Gaga's heart ever since it opened in 2012, and she even tweeted out a sweet message for her parents the day their eatery opened its doors.

"I'm so proud of my parents!" she wrote. "Tonight their restaurant opens in NY. Joanne Trattoria. My dad built with his two hands, mommy decorated."

In addition, Gaga had a night to remember on Valentine's Day last year (14Feb15), when her then-boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, popped the question to Gaga, and they celebrated their engagement at Joanne Trattoria with her family.

Gaga and Kinney called off their engagement and split after five years together last month (Jul16).

The Joanne Trattoria Cookbook will be released on 22 November (16).
