Taylor Swift and Lorde took part in a joint cookery lesson yesterday (11.08.14).

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' hitmaker and her 17-year-old BFF both took to their Instagram accounts to reveal they spent the day cooking up a storm in Rhode Island.

In a message attached to a picture of the pair concentrating on their creations, Taylor wrote: "Thank you to Chef Jeanie at Ella's Fine Food and Drink for giving us the best and only cooking lesson (sic)"

Lorde also posted a picture of the pair preparing what looked like tacos and she praised Taylor's superb cooking ability.

She captioned the image: "took a wonderful cooking class in rhode island alongside the already-super-good-cook, ms.@taylorswift (sic)"

The pair often post pictures of each other on their social networking sites and the 'Royals' hitmaker recently praised her 24-year-old pal for being an "incredible role model".

She explained: "I think there are artists who are really incredible role models and that's something I admire. I feel like Taylor is a really good role model and I think that the girls who listen to her music are so devoted to her, and I think what she's saying is pretty cool. It's empowering.

"If we have the same work problems, we know each other's lives better. It's always good befriending people who do a similar thing."
