The former High School Musical sweetheart received a private session from Cristina Bowerman just before Halloween, and on Monday (02Nov15), the actress shared photos of the culinary concoctions they came up with on social media.

Bowerman, who recently launched Crateful - a Los Angeles-based catering company, flew in from Rome to teach Hudgens, her boyfriend Austin Butler and sister Stella a few kitchen tricks at the actress' home in Los Angeles.

On the menu, savoury bat cookies and truffle risotto.
