Although Dom is a skilled chef, La La admitted to Essence that she is not as passionate about cooking, La La

explained:

"I'm not much of a cook. I'm probably the worst cook. Breakfast is the only thing I can kind of do."

La La told Essence that during some of her earlier episodes on the show, the crew was quick to point out that she was holding the knives wrong and also pointed out other mistakes she was making.

The actress said playing Dom has improved her skills in the kitchen and it has inspired her to learn more about cooking.
