Amal Clooney is a world class attorney specializing in global, criminal, human rights and extradition law. But don’t question her what to do with a spatula.

Confidenti@l is told that when Sal Scognamillo, executive chef at Instrument’s Italian Restaurant, existing the newlywed wife of George Clooney a copy of his new cookbook on Monday night, she declined saying, “What, you think I cook? I don’t cook! You expect me to learn?”

Amal and her new mother-in-law, Nina Clooney, finished a “girls day” in the city with a carb dinner at the chic red sauce joint on West 56th St., where George joined them.

“Amal questioned (Scognamillo) what he recommended on the menu and she said that she doesn’t eat tomatoes,” said a Confidenti@l spy, “He recommended the penne with spicy marinara with pink peppers, so she had that with a household salad with no tomatoes.”

“George said that he’s watching his weight,” added the source, “and he had a tricolore salad and then chicken tricolore, which is grilled chicken on salad. They came out with a selection of desserts and they picked on those but George didn’t have too much because he’s watching his weight.”

“They were very nice and they said hello to customers,” added our gossip.

Another source said the group lingered for almost an hour after the restaurant had closed its doors.
