Say Gwyneth Paltrow and its like you had me at hello. I love all things Gwyneth. As a devoted GOOP reader, I have learned not only what a talented actress she is, but what a wonderful cook she is as well. Last summer we learned through her feature in VOGUE that she would be coming out with a cookbook this spring. Well guess what chickadees? The cookbook is OUT and I am placing my order on Amazon as we speak.
The cookbook is called, “My Father’s Daughter” and is dedicated to her departed father, Bruce Paltrow. Gwyneth says that she, “can still hear her father over her shoulder, heckling me, telling me to be careful with my knife, moaning with pleasure over a bit of something in the way only a Jew from Long Island can, his shoulders doing most of the talking.” Paltrow considers cooking to be the greatest gift that her father imparted on her and wanted to channel that by creating this cookbook.
Gwynnie’s mantra about cooking? ”Invest in what’s real. Clean as you go. Drink while you cook. Make it fun. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It will be what it will be.” Amen, sista. I may have to frame this above the kitchen sink some day – just for good measures:)
