Jenna Jameson
Funny, she doesn't look Jewish: Jenna Jameson on Good Day New YorkYouTube/StrangeNewsTV

Former porn star Jenna Jameson is converting to Judaism and is extolling the virtues of Jewish cooking.

Jameson, who quit (sort-of) the adult film industry in 2008, is engaged to Los Angeles-based Israeli diamond merchant - and convicted insurance fraudster - Lior Bitton.

In 2010, Biton was convicted of falsely reporting the theft of a 4.21-carat diamond from his Pacific Diamonds and Gems store, which he tried to sell in Israel after having collected $100,000 (£65,000) in insurance.

The former "queen of porn" has in the past described herself as a devout Catholic, telling TV host Larry King in 2013: ""I think that we've come a long way religiously. I don't think that you have to take the Bible literally... And I love being able to teach my children what it means to just believe and have the strength of faith... I've always been extremely Catholic. My father was Catholic, and he brought me up that way."

But now she has given up Rome for Jerusalem - at least, metaphorically.

For the past few months, she has been detailing her journey to Judaism 0 and especially her love of Jewish cuisine - through Instagram and Twitter.

Here, she presents her Shabbat (Sabbath) dish...

She said she came to Jewish food after corresponding with YesThatsKosher.com writer Dani Klein and reading up on recipes from Jamie Geller's Joy of Kosher.

And the Jewish Twittersphere has gone wild.

And Jameson has even written in Hebrew... I'm coming to Israel soon
