Celeb foodie: Drew Barrymore shares her exploits online

You know someone is a bona fide foodie when you are treated to loads of photographs of food on his or her Instagram page.

Even more so when that someone is a celebrity who is not even connected to the culinary scene.

Drew Barrymore is one of them, and judging from the kinds - and portions - of food that she indulges in, the US actress sure is not worried about an expanding waistline.

Or perhaps the mother of one-year-old daughter Olive is pigging out because of her pregnancy cravings.

Barrymore is expecting her second daughter with husband Will Kopelman.

She famously posted a photo of herself heading to a pizza joint after the Golden Globes ceremony on Instagram earlier this year, with a "Post Golden globes pregnant pizza after party!" caption.

Last week, the 38-year-old was happily posting pictures on Instagram again, detailing her latest food adventures with actress-pals Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon.

The trio were at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, northern California, for a two-day Cooking Of Italy workshop.

Joining them were Hollywood stylist Leslie Fremar and celebrity makeup artists Lona Vigi and Gucci Westman.

Barrymore shared photos from a lesson where she learnt how to make home-made pasta.


She also uploaded a photo collage where she gleefully posed with pasta dough, along with the caption "Going to culinary school in napa! #freshpasta #learning #eating".

Not to be outdone, Oscar winner Witherspoon, 37, also shared a photo of herself decked out in her chef gear while making spinach ricotta ravioli.

The women were clearly enjoying the time off from their many work and family commitments.

Diaz, 41, who had declared her love for cheese and carbs in her The Body Book released in January, documented their "amazingly delicious, educational, and ridiculously fun time" with a group photo of the class.

Perhaps Barrymore, who is reportedly due in a couple of months, can consider taking up Chinese cooking classes next to satisfy her craving for noodles.

She told E! News in January: "The (craving) with Olive was tamales. Anything tamale. I love tamales.

"With this little lovely (second) lady, it's pan-fried noodles from any Chinese restaurant.

"I drive by them and I fantasise about them. I find myself pulling over a lot for food. Like the car just goes off the lane and over to the restaurant."
