Apparently, when Kristen Stewart isn’t making movies, visiting talk shows or dodging paparazzi, the actress is quite the foodie and budding chef.
“I cooked dinner for 20 people; I was really proud of myself,” the 20-year-old told MTV News at the red carpet for a special screening of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” in New York on Monday night.
“I get really embarrassed when people ask me what I cook, for some reason,” she added. “I shouldn’t say that I cook anymore. There was like a big BBQ situation and, like, a bunch of steaks and veggies, and I made chicken piccata. I’m so embarrassed right now. But I made homemade marinara sauce starting at, like, 2 in the afternoon. It wasn’t done until 8. It was incredible. The ’Twilight’ cast showed up.”
But even though Taylor Lautner is a fan of Stewart’s cooking, he didn’t get an invitation to the big feast. Maybe it was a vampires-only meal?
“I have sampled her food,” he said, when he heard about the dinner party. “I was not at the feast, Kristen. But I have tried her food.”
Lautner may have missed out on her marinara sauce, but he did get to sample a more unusual dish Stewart whipped up. “Like, OK, you know kumquats? There’s apparently a fruit called loquats. Yeah, I didn’t know either. And she made a loquat pie.”
