Actress Blake Lively is indulging her passion for food - she enrolled in a workshop at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu cookery school in France earlier this month (Dec10).

The Gossip Girl star is an avid chef and dreams of one day opening her own restaurant, so she often takes lessons to hone her culinary skills.

And she recently fulfilled her dream of working with France's famously fiery chefs by signing up for a tailor-made class at the revered food institution in the French capital.

After making guinea fowl casserole, sauteed winter root vegetables and chocolate fondant with Chef Franck Poupard, she said, "My dream as a passionate cook has been to go to Le Cordon Bleu. Never could my most incredible dream have lived up to the experience.

"The food, the lesson, the chef, the ingredients - all the best of the best. I see why Le Cordon Bleu is world renowned. Now I only dream to have more time to go back to Le Cordon Bleu and spend months learning from the gods of food!!"
