Ali Larter: Cookbook is for hedonists

Ali Larter is promoting a new book referred to as the "anti-Goop" cookbook.

The former Heroes actress has taken an alternative look at cooking, in stark contrast to Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop lifestyle newsletters - which offer advice on everything from food to family.

Ali's new tome Kitchen Revelry: Fun, Fearless and Festive Ideas to Inspire You to Take a Bite out of Life has been pitched at "hedonists".

The book will appeal to people who appreciate "lipstick smudged Champagne glasses" and "a sink of beautifully dirty dishes".

The 36-year-old star first felt inspired to work on the tome after cooking a terrible meal for friends years ago. Ali admits the stress of trying to create a perfect dinner was too much to handle.

"This journey started during my first, disastrous dinner party. I lived in a fourth-floor walk-up above a pub," Ali explained, according to New York Post. "I was lonely and trying to use it as a way to meet new people. My insecurities got the best of me and I drank too much wine. I had my mind set on an overly complicated dish I just wish I had found laughter through the tears. Mistakes happen... burn, cry, reapply!"
