| by

Jake Gyllenhaal recently admits he enjoys spending time in the kitchen and cooking up some fresh meals.

“I’ve always loved cooking, probably because my father and mother always cooked,” he said.

“I have a massive section in my library at home of beautiful old cook books. I really have a strange obsession with them.”


Although Jake is "obsessed" with his recipe books, he likes to create his own fresh dish.

“If I’m making a romantic dinner. I like to go to a farmers’ market first, buy things fresh and come up with my own dish based on whatever I’ve bought,” he added.

“I grow my own vegetables at home because I love fresh food.”
