Jamie Oliver taught Gwyneth Paltrow to cook


Chris Martin once asked Jamie Oliver to teach wife Gwyneth Paltrow to cook.

The 36-year-old Coldplay frontman got in touch with the celebrity chef in order to give the actress (40) ? who’s the author of a number of cookbooks including Notes from my Kitchen Table and It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes that Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great ? a lesson as a birthday present.

Jamie (38) told the Daily Star newspaper, "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."

The pair spent the afternoon producing a delightful duck ragu which Gwyneth later included in her own 2010 cookbook, My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family And Togetherness.

Jamie explained, "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."
