Blake Lively has found a pretty awesome way to pass the time before welcoming her first baby. The actress recently cooked alongside Top Chef Season 3 winner Hung Huynh.
She posted a snapshot of the cooking session to her Instagram Tuesday. The photo show the mom-to-be, lifestyle guru, and avowed foodie cooking with the Cheftestant. Both are pictured watching simmering food at the stove, while also overseeing a cutting board shaped as the USA. How patriotic!
"Nothing better (or tastier) than an evening spent with friends who share your passion," she wrote about the kitchen cook-off (pictured above). "What you don't see is the epic foodie dice challenge which took place afterward! Such a great night [Hung]. Thank you! And thank you to the Preserve artisans who supplied our beautiful tools! Who can spot them? (Hint: 4 visible)."
The actress, who oversees the lifestyle brand Preserve, is expecting her first child with Ryan Reynolds. She announced the news earlier this year and has since kept our mouths watering with the delicious-looking photos she's posted to her social media page, proving that among pregnant actresses at the moment, she's a bit of a Top Chef herself.
Meanwhile, since his Top Chef win, Hung has been busy serving as the executive chef of several eateries, including Catch in New York City and Miami as well as The General in Manhattan. While it looks like things remained relatively low-key with Hung and Blake during their get-together, Hung hasn't been shy about his more "intense" management style in the kitchen.
"It's very hands-on," he said earlier this year. "I'm not the calmest guy. I'm very intense. I expect everyone to be on their toes all day and push. I'm old school. I also like to pull people aside and ask them how their day is, to see what they need, to get one-on-one feedback. It's personal, too. It's a personal relationship that you have to build in order for people to follow you. I like things done a certain way. They have to follow it. The kitchen is probably the last dictatorship around. There's democracy, but there's also a dictatorship."
