Cattrall Puts Sex On Menu At Food Awards

Is there anything sexier than food? It's probably no surprise that for Kim Cattrall it's the people who make it.

Known for her vixen character, Samantha, in "Sex and the City," Cattrall put sex talk on the menu while hosting Sunday's James Beard Foundation awards, often called the "Oscars" of the food world.

Cattrall opened the ceremony talking about her own love of cooking, then asked co-host and celebrity chef Bobby Flay what has more sex appeal than food. A breath later, she offered her own answer.

"Maybe what's sexier is the chefs who are always cooking up something new and exciting," she cooed.

Cattrall then quickly challenged Flay to a "throwdown" in the kitchen, to which Flay said: "Don't worry. I'll be gentle."

"Sex and the City" grossed $21.3 million this weekend, earning $99.3 million total after only 10 days in theaters. The movie is based on the HBO television series.
