Peter Som Cooks Up Sweet Designs in the Kitchen

What happens when a renowned fashion designer trades the runway for a kitchen? Just ask Peter Som, who recently ditched his stylish suits in favor of chef whites.

Som, who is known for effortlessly chic womenswear, attended a Saturday morning cooking class led by Adour Alain Ducasse pastry chef Sandro Micheli. There, the Manhattan-based designer told Women's Wear Daily about his home-baking hobby and affinity for cooking. "I watch Food Network like it's [the only thing on] TV," he said, adding, "I used to bring pies to the office. I can't eat them all myself."

The class was difficult for even the most advanced of home cooks: "Wow, he's intense," Som said of his teacher.

Within two hours, the 10 students had created madeleines, financiers, chouquettes, chocolate chip cookies, pâtés de fruit à la fraise, and absinthe-flavored marshmallows. I've long been an enthusiast of Som's designs, but had no idea that he joins the likes of Kate Winslet and Mandy Moore in his culinary affinities. Are you a fan of any other celebrities who cook?
