What's Kate Bosworth's Favorite Dish to Cook & Reality Show to Watch? | Kate Bosworth

Kate Bosworth Dishes on Her Culinary Specialty

Originally posted 05/18/2013 11:55AM

Kate Bosworth, 30, stars in the thriller Black Rock, in theaters now, and chatted with PEOPLE this week about "one last thing" ...

Last sunset I watched: "Last night. I live in the hills of L.A., and I get a beautiful view of the sunset on my patio. The sunrise, however – that normally escapes me."

Last reality TV I watched: "I love all the cooking shows like Chopped and Top Chef. I've just started to learn to cook in the last couple of years, and I love it. My specialty is a sausage ragu; it takes about six or seven hours to cook. That's almost my mini-vacation, cooking with my fiancé [director Michael Polish] and his daughter. Just having that family time.

Last activity: "Boxing. I've never been a very patient yoga student, so my exercise of choice is something a little bit more action-oriented."

What's Got Tom Colicchio & Gail Simmons Spinning Out of Control?

Originally posted 01/11/2013 06:00AM

From Top Chef to top cyclist!

Top Chef judges chef Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons kicked off 2013 on a healthy note by they visiting SoulCycle's Tribeca location on Wednesday.

"While Gail was upfront wearing a SoulCycle t-shirt, Tom was in the back wearing black shorts, an Under Armour tank and a do-rag," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

The co-judges are no strangers to the cycling craze, the source adds. "They both spin on a regular basis" and "spin together regularly when they're filming Top Chef".

After powering through the last song of the class – Beyoncé's "Halo" – Colicchio stopped to chat with Food & Wine magazine publisher Christina Grdovic.

Here's to hoping for a Quickfire Competition on a bike!

Andy Cohen Goes Fishing on Hooked Up

Originally posted 11/28/2012 03:00PM



Andy Cohen may be a seasoned host on Bravo, but on the harbor he's definitely a bit of a fish out of water.

In a sneak peek of Tom Colicchio's Hooked Up, Cohen guest stars and catches his first big one on a fishing trip in New York Harbor.

This is one set up that's hardly smooth sailing. From the initial look of disgust on Cohen's face when talking about worms and his self-proclaimed title of "Jewish Adventurist," the episode is filled with laugh-out-loud moments. Even the Top Chef judge pulls one over on Cohen with a less-than-appropriate outfit for his novice guest.

Stop! Hammer time.

Armie Hammer and Padma Lakshmi felt the need for speed during the Audi Sportscar Experience at the Raceway at Sonoma, Calif. on Saturday.

Alongside his wife Elizabeth Chambers, the Lone Ranger star had the chance to drive Audi R8, RS 5 and TT RS vehicles.

"Armie and Elizabeth were lovey-dovey the entire time, constantly holding hands or with their arms around one another," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

"They both got behind the wheel to take laps on the track, but after just one round, Armie swooped Elizabeth up up in his arms and carried her – Prince Charming style – after they got out of the car," the source adds.

Meanwhile, Top Chef host Lakshmi came dressed like a pro in black leggings, boots and a stunning red and black leather jacket.
