new cookbook

My Father's DaughterMy Father's Daughter by Gwyneth Paltrow

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I got this from the library because I have enjoyed her GOOP.com website and was intrigued to find out what she could have to say about food. I so rarely buy cookbooks these days, looking instead to the internet and my Cooking Light and Food & Wine magazines; however, I am thinking I will buy this one. I found myself completely immersed and read it cover to cover last night. It turns out she has a very strong point of view and one that is very similar to my own, serving her kids a large variety of solely organic meals, even including olives and anchovies (which, it turns out, are some of Vivi's favorites). I appreciate her tips for how to make a meal more kid-friendly, and I am sure the vegans also appreciate that she gives notes for how to make a meal vegan too. The photography is stunning. Her descriptions of her family are deeply personal and touching and make me want to cook the meals that much more. I also love that she includes a list of pantry items in the front; so few cookbooks do that, and it's a great touch.
