Celebrities’ lives often tend to be a bit different to ours. I’ve never had the paparazzi hold a stakeout in front of my house, waiting to take pictures when I emerge to buy some milk, and for that, I’m glad.

But there are some basic necessities of life we all have to go through, celebrity or not, and one of them is eating. While some celebrities simply hire a chef or eat out, there are a lot who enjoy spending time in the kitchen – here’s a list of seven of them.

Scarlett Johansen is first on the list of celebrities who can cook. She enjoys cooking as a hobby and way of relaxing, stating, “I like cooking alone – I find it very therapeutic.”

2. Kris Jenner

If you want to add some new vegan recipes to your arsenal, you should check out Alicia Silverstone – like Kris Jenner, she’s also published a cookbook called The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet.

4. Chrissy Teigan

If you’re on Instagram this one may not come as such a surprise, because the pictures Teigan puts up of her food look amazing Whether it’s a dutch baby (a type of pancake, don’t worry!), zucchini lasagna, or chicken pot pie soup, it’s clear Teigan seriously can cook. Her cookbook, Cravings, is supposedly filled with easy comfort-food recipes anyone can make.

5. David Beckham

The singer told The Guardian he loves to cook, and was even appointed cook on the boat where he used to be a professional fisherman. Learning from his mother in law, he’s picked up how to make gnocchi, asado, and much more.

7. Stanley Tucci

Like others on the list, Stanley Tucci has also written his own cookbook, this time inspired by all the Italian dishes his grandparents made for him in his youth. Although one of the first meals he and his wife Fiona Blunt cooked together – a suckling pig – didn’t go quite according to plan, his egg ravioli and handmade pasta look mouth-wateringly good.
