Matt Damon is set to show off his culinary skills on Tuesday when he takes part in a live TV cook-off for charity.
The Bourne Identity star will swap the film set for the kitchen for the Food Network's Cooking Live!, on which he will serve as Chef Ming Tsai's sous chef to help prepare a six course meal.
The event will take place at The Ritz-Carlton hotel in downtown New York to raise funds for the Family Reach Foundation, which aids poverty-stricken families with their medical expenses.
