Los Angeles: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has added baking to her culinary skills by taking private lessons from top chef Zoe Loeb.
The 41-year-old jumped at the chance to work with her long time friend Josh Loeb's wife when she heard the "serious baker" was working on a book based around the recipes for dishes she serves at her Huckleberry Cafe in California, reports suggest.
Detailing the first of many hook-ups with Zoe in her new goop.com newsletter, Paltrow, who has penned her own cookbooks, writes: "When I heard Zoe had compiled the sweet and savory breakfasts from Huckleberry into a book, I leapt at the chance for a baking lesson with her (I am a good cook, and a s**t baker).
"These recipes are gorgeous, and the techniques were not hard to pick up. I've even made scones on my own since then. Take that."
