Los Angeles: James Bond star Daniel Craig turned chef on the sets of his new movie `Cowboys & Aliens`, but quickly dropped the role when the entire crew queued up to sample food cooked by him.

The 43-year-old actor plays wrangler Jake Lonergan alongside Harrison Ford in the upcoming action movie, which is based on the popular 2006 graphic novel.

Fellow star Sam Rockwell revealed Craig showed off his cookery skills whenever filming wrapped for the day, reported Empire online.

But the `Casino Royale` star had to eventually call in caterers when word of his delicious meals spread on the set.

"I cook a few steaks and suddenly there are 50 people there. Then I didn`t bother and got some catering people in," said Craig.
