Keira Knightley is learning how to cook

Nothing like a home-cooked meal, eh? Keira Knightley is on a mission to harness the power of the kitchen — with the help of her mum. How’s that working out?

Maybe Keira Knightley is Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (see what we did there?) so she could astonish him with her newly acquired culinary skills.

Or maybe not… We’re just theorizing.

But the actress did reveal she is enlisting her mother’s cooking proficiency to help her learn the ropes in the kitchen.

“I’m an all right cook. Not brilliant, but all right. My mum’s a really good cook, but we had a really small kitchen, so she could never actually teach me any of the stuff that she made. But now she’s starting to,” Knightley stated.

“I’ve gotten really good recipes, which are excellent. I’m good at, like, a one-pot dish. It’s the timing. I always walk away at a wrong point. And then everything burns! But stews and curries, I’m good at that!”

Oh, one-pot meals… What would weekdays be without you? Our suppers would turn into ugly, frozen dinner affairs.

Maybe Knightley is trying to brush up on those cooking skills to impress her fiance, James Righton of the Klaxons. You never know…

All we can say is, we hope Ms. Knightley learns how to make pies and confectionary delights, because she is looking more skeletal than usual these days. Opinions?
