Kate Hudson: Goldie Hawn is an expert chef

Goldie Hawn is an excellent chef.

The 'First Wives Club' star loves to wow her family and friends with her culinary skills and makes a "mean" biscuits and gravy.

Her daughter Kate Hudson revealed: "Enjoying good food is a huge part of being healthy and happy. When I was growing up, everybody came to our place for dinner on Sundays. It was a joyful house. Food was very important; there was always something good cooking.

"Mom went to India a lot in the seventies, so she made curries and dal. She cooks Southern food too - her dad was from Arkansas. She makes a mean biscuits and gravy and chicken and dumplings.

"My mom has always been healthy, but she's not a health nut. I'm the same way. I absolutely believe in enjoying my food, especially when I travel. I don't eat a lot of meat when I'm home, but I can't be in Germany and not eat the bratwurst. I just love it so much."

Meanwhile, the 37-year-old actress also opened up about her fitness regime, admitting Pilates led her to a "body breakthrough" moment.

She added to Shape magazine: "I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I'm still doing it. It's the workout my body really responds to. It's all about alignment, elongating your spine, and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest.

'I'm a nature girl. I grew up in Colorado and was always outside. I still am, even when I'm in the city. If I'm in Amsterdam, I get on a bike, ride everywhere, and really see the place. I love that freedom, which you can't get in a car. In New York City, if I'm staying downtown and have a meeting uptown, I'll put on my earphones, listen to great music, and just walk. There's nothing better than walking in Manhattan."
