Celebrity slim ... Liz Hurley models her swimwear range.

Elizabeth Hurley wants to increase her meal repertoire with cooking lessons.

The British star who is passionate about healthy eating, likes to make meals herself and is considering getting some help to broaden her culinary skills.

"I put myself under pressure to remain slim because I still model my own bikinis," she said.

"That said, my eating habits are pretty good, but there's always room for improvement. I'd like to take some cooking lessons and get some more dishes into my repertoire.

"I go to bed reading recipe books - especially when I'm hungry. I get bored easily if I eat the same foods every day and like to mix it up. I'm more likely to snack on savoury treats, like popcorn, than sweet ones."

Hurley, who is engaged to Australian cricketer Shane Warne, has also cut out wine.

"I don't drink much alcohol and gave up drinking wine and champagne nearly three years ago. If I have a drink, I prefer Grey Goose vodka in a tall glass with lots of ice, the juice of a whole lime and soda water," she told Amuse magazine. "Totally delicious and not too fattening."
