— Pippa Middleton, Great Britain's most famous bridesmaid, is releasing her very own cookbook. Titled Heartfelt, the book promises "over 100 quick and easy recipes for a healthy heart," and proceeds benefit future research by the British Heart Foundation, of which Middleton is an ambassador. Are all of the healthy recipes actually good? Well, you might have to ask someone other than Prince William's sister-in-law. "I would like to say I have made every single one, but I have definitely done a good 80 percent of them," she admitted to the Daily Mail. "I made a lot of the dishes at home."

Heartfelt will see its release on September 29, but it's available for pre-order right now.

— Kristin Cavallari of MTV's early-2000s SoCal reality series Laguna Hills is getting in on the celebrity cookbook game too. "I've actually been working on it for the last couple of years with hopes I'd have a cookbook deal, and it's finally come true, and I'm so excited," Cavallari tells E!. "It's going to be a reflection of how I eat on a daily basis." Look for a number of health-conscious recipes, with a few splurges mixed in. Cavallari hasn't revealed the book's name, but it should be published in spring 2018.

— Tuffy Stone, champion pitmaster and star of TLC's BBQ Pitmasters, has his first cookbook in the works. Publishers Marketplace reports Cool Smoke will include 125 recipes, plus "cooking tips and personal secrets about the right fuels, grills, utensils, rubs, sauces, methods, and meats to use, for anyone who wants to achieve blue-ribbon results every time." St. Martin's Press will publish the book.

— Candace Nelson, Cupcake Wars judge and founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes in Beverly Hills, is sharing some of her favorite recipes in her new cookbook. The Sprinkles Baking Book: 100 Secret Recipes from Candace's Kitchen is available for pre-order, and it will hit shelves on October 25. Published by Grand Central Life & Style, The Sprinkles Baking Book will include "the recipes and stories that have been a part of [Nelson's] life and her customers' lives."

— Kate Parla, Italy-based journalist and Roman restaurant expert, has inked a cookbook deal with Clarkson Potter, according to Publishers Marketplace. In her as-of-yet-unnamed book, Parla will showcase "Southern Italy's familiar flavors (mozzarella, dried pasta, San Marzano tomatoes) in both traditional and modernized dishes, complete with cultural commentary."

— Jeremiah Stone and Fabian von Hauske, chef-owners of New York City's Contra and Wildair, are planning their first cookbook, per Publishers Marketplace. The currently unnamed book will feature dishes from both restaurants. Phaidon is in as publisher.

— Artist Dan Bransfield has inked a deal for a book that shines a light on pizza, according to Publishers Marketplace. The Pizza Codex, published by Ten Speed Press, will serve as "a completely illustrated miscellany depicting all the details of everyone's favorite food."

— Journalist Ken Wells, a native of Louisiana, is releasing a book that covers one of his home state's greatest culinary traditions, according to Publishers Marketplace. Gumbo: A Travelogue will be "a narrative of the world's most famous soup that takes us down the gumbo highway — from Louisiana and the author's own childhood to the far corners of the globe and deep into centuries past." Norton expects to publish the book in fall 2017.
