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.
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.
