I originally wrote this off as yet another celebrity cookbook glad I gave it a go as it s excellent Loads of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free recipes, and a lovely insight into GP s life, showing a very different side of her The stories about her father are very touching, and the story of her last meal with him had me in tears.
Cookbooks like this have a story to tell By reading this you learn about Gwyneth Paltrow s upbringing and the love she has for family, especially her father.The recipes all look and sound delicious.It became quite a scandal that Gwyneth did not write this book alone I m not sure why there was so much drama around this She says it right from the get go that she had someone helping her with this She also couldn t try all the recipes herself as she is a vegetarian or vegan.The cover definitely sets [...]
