Drew Barrymore Hosts Cooking Parties With Reese Witherspoon

Too many (A-list) cooks in Drew Barrymore's kitchen? No such thing! A source tells Us Weekly the aspiring chef, 38, has hosted culinary fetes for pals including Reese Witherspoon, 37, at her Montecito, California, home.

As the group gathers 'round, the actress' nutritionist Kimberly Snyder demonstrates how to whip up healthy fare. Explains the insider, "Drew gets excited to share new dishes with her friends." 

The new mom, who welcomed her first child, daughter Olive, with husband Will Kopelman, on Sept. 26 last year, is even turning her baby girl into a little foodie. Says the source, "When Drew's experimenting in the kitchen, they have bonding time together."
