Padma Lakshmi's next book is designed for the children's table.

The "Top Chef'' host and best-selling author is working on her first picture book, ``Tomatoes for Neela.'' Viking Children's Books announced Tuesday that the book is scheduled for fall 2021. According to the publisher, ``Tomatoes for Neela'' is an intergenerational story about a little girl who likes to cook and helps prepare her family's savory tomato sauce.

"Cooking and the passing down of food knowledge is one of the most enriching ways I bonded with the women in my family,'' said Lakshmi said in a statement. ``And it's how I bond today with my daughter, passing down skills and advice that I hope will give her a lifetime of healthy eating long after I am gone.''

The book is a collaboration with prize-winning illustrator Juana Martinez-Neal, and will include a recipe by Lakshmi, whose previous works include ``Easy Exotic'' and ``Love, Loss and What We Ate.''
