Catherine, 39, and husband Michael Douglas were snapped at the United Nations Association Global Leadership Awards Gala at The Waldorf Astoria in New York City on October 1st. Catherine looks stunning as always!
Catherine has confessed that her cooking skills are so bad that once she almost set the kitchen on fire!
She said, “I’m a terrible cook. I can microwave chicken nuggets well. This is a true story – I actually burnt a pan once. There wasn’t a fire but it was smoking and I got a little scared. So that was the first and last time I tried to cook.”
It is refreshing to hear Catherine speak so honestly of her lack of Martha Stewart ambitions. Though mastery of the kitchen and all things domestic is very wonderful, sometimes it gets a little tiring to hear the likes of Katie Lee Joel, Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham wax poetic about their passion for cooking and baking all sorts of gourmand creations. It is especially frustrating as I don’t believe for one second that they actually eat any of the food they prepare, and they probably prepare one meal a month while all the rest are prepared by personal chefs! 🙂
