Pregnant Blake Lively gets a cooking lesson from a top chef

Pregnant Blake Lively received a cooking lesson from the season 3 winner of the reality TV series Top Chef this week. Hung Huynh, a Vietnamese-American chef, helped the lifestyle guru whip up a delicious holiday meal at her New York City home, which she shares with her Canadian hubby, Ryan Reynolds.

The former Gossip Girl actress, who is currently expecting the couple’s first child, got cooking tips from the pro – and shared a photograph of the moment with fans on Instagram.

The snap shows the domestic goddess ready to cook with her blonde locks tied back into a loose bun and a pinstriped apron that covers her growing baby bump. The beautiful actress is casual in a blue and white striped long-sleeved top and tartan bottoms.

The 27-year-old mum-to-be – whose bundle of joy is due early next year – wrote alongside the photo: "Nothing better (or tastier) than an evening spent with friends who share your passion.

She added: “What you don't see is the epic foodie dice challenge which took place afterward! Such a great night @chefhunghuynh. Thank you! And thank you to the Preserve artisans who supplied our beautiful tools! Who can spot them? (Hint: 4 visible).”

The actress is a self-professed foodie, often sharing her home-cooked delights with fans. She recently posted a picture of dinner, which was roasted chicken with veggies, and a hot chocolate complete with marshmallow.

Standing over a pot of boiling water, Huynh and his sous chef are surrounded by tons of kitchenware, including a USA Cutting Board, which can be purchased on Preserve for $55.
