Amy Winehouse's delicious album

Amy Winehouse sings about her favourite foods on her new album.
The 'Rehab' singer - who was recently hospitalised after she suffered convulsions at her London home - is currently working on her third album and has taken inspiration from her favourite meals while writing tracks.
A source said: "When Amy's working she gets loads of Caribbean food delivered to the studio. It can get a bit messy sometimes. But that's where Amy gets her soul from - good old-fashioned soul food."
The 24-year-old singer has previously revealed she often makes meatballs for her friends after nights out, and one of her new songs includes the line: "I can cook, chicken soup, meatballs, a good chicken - jerk and fried."
Amy has been trying to stick to a healthy diet in order to put on weight since she left hospital, which could be the reason behind the new lyrics.
The source said: "The lyrical content is a little off the wall. But Amy writes about what's on her mind - and she goes all out.
"It's only in its early stages, but Amy is really excited about getting back to what she does best - making great music."
The troubled singer has been revisiting her past on other songs on the album.
The source added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "She's working on one track which talks about her upbringing as a Jewish girl. The song brings her back to happier days when she didn't have a care in the world."
