Singer/songwriter Michelle Branch has joined the ranks of the celebrity chefs after signing on to host a new web series about innovative new cooking ideas.

The star has teamed up with top chef Michael Mina to launch Cook Taste Eat, a digital media company delivering free daily emails and a website featuring premium culinary videos and recipes.

Together the duo hopes to encourage aspiring chefs and "curious foodies" to try new dishes and exotic, rare ingredients.

The Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, wife and mother is a budding chef who will quiz her pal Mina about recipes and nutrition as they cook online together.

The first dish they offer up to food lovers is sesame-crusted Ahi tuna with falafel, tahini and grilled cucumber.
