You would think a mum of two would know how to cook, especially when they have published a cookbook in their own name. Well apparently not because the Coldplay star Chris Martin has asked his friend and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to teach his wife Gwyneth Paltrow how to cook!
Gwyneth will be celebrating her 41st birthday later this month and Chris decided to give her the cooking lessons as a birthday present. Speaking to the Daily Star Newspaper Jamie Oliver said, “I know Gwyneth because her husband Chris rang and asked if I’d give her a cookery lesson for her birthday. I’m a big Coldplay fan, and Gwyneth’s a lovely woman, so it was a done deal.”
Jamie went on to say, “I spent the afternoon cooking in her kitchen, we made a slow-roasted duck ragu. And then a bunch of her friends came around
to eat it.”
As a way of saying thank you Chris and Gwyneth sent Jamie a present in return. He said, “About a week later they bought me a really cool top-of-the-range electric drum kit, which I still use. I’m a frustrated drummer.”
Let’s hope Gwyneth can now cook her husband more than just one recipe from her published cookbook, but if recent events are anything to go by it appears not as she was spotted eating out again shortly after!
