Holidaying Douglases hire top chef
Holidaying Douglases hire top chef

A top gourmet chef has been cooking up treats for Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas during their summer holiday in Wales.

Chef and restaurant owner Michael Knight has been visiting the Hollywood couple's £2 million mansion in the fishing village of Mumbles to cook up their chosen meals.

The 42-year-old's highly successful restaurant serves "new world cuisine" and specialises in fish, apparently a firm favourite with the celebrity couple.

The chef said: "After coming in for a meal a couple of weeks ago they came back and asked whether we could prepare meals for them when they were at home."

"I said I could do better than that and agreed to go up there and cook whenever they wanted.

"I provide them with daily menus and they give me a call when they want something. I've been up there about four or five times."

He added: "It is very relaxed, they are very nice , and it is never for more than about nine people so it is hardly stressful.

"I take some of my pots and pans with me, use some of theirs, and cook in their kitchen. The kitchen is way bigger than mine.

"But it is very relaxed. Michael comes in and tastes the food and when its ready he helps carry the plates. Everyone mucks in. They are very nice."

The couple have been regular visitors to the area's golf courses over the last month and are set to play in a celebrity event in Newport.
