Actress Drew Barrymore is stepping into the world of reality TV after signing up to produce a new cooking competition. The Charlie's Angels star has been brushing up on her culinary skills since wedding husband Will Kopelman and becoming a mum to daughter Olive last year (12), and she has become obsessed with watching cooks battle it out on TV. She reveals she records "every food competition show" to watch while she's at home, and now Barrymore has decided to step behind the scenes to create her own, titled Knife Fight, for America's Esquire Network, according to Marie Claire magazine. The actress also admits she has developed a fascination with all things Italian, and plans to one day travel to the European country to learn how to make hearty family meals from local chefs. She says, "(I want) to live in Italy for a summer and go to cooking school while I'm there." A premiere date for Knife Fight has yet to be announced.
