Book Description

April 13 2011
The Academy-Award winning actress and avid foodie shares a sumptuous collection of recipes and gorgeous photographs celebrating the joy of preparing food for loved ones, a passion she learned from her beloved father.

As an actress, author, trendsetter, creator of goop.com, and host of the popular PBS series, Spain: On the Road Again, Gwyneth Paltrow is an icon of style and good taste around the world. As a young girl eating and cooking with her father, Bruce Paltrow, she developed a passion for food that has shaped how she lives today and strengthened her belief that time with family is a priority. Now in MY FATHER'S DAUGHTER, Paltrow shares her favorite family recipes along with personal stories of growing up with her father, Bruce Paltrow. She discusses how he has influenced her in the food she loves, how she involves her kids in cooking, and how she balances healthy food with homemade treats. And, for the first time, Paltrow offers a glimpse into her life as daughter, mother and wife, sharing her thoughts on the importance of family and togetherness.

Complete with 150 delicious ideas for breakfast, sandwiches and burgers, soups, salads, main dishes, sides, and desserts, this beautifully illustrated book includes full-color photos throughout, many featuring Paltrow at home with her family and friends. MY FATHER'S DAUGHTER is a luscious collection that will inspire readers to cook great food with the people who mean the most to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly great April 8 2011
I must own half the cookbooks from the Food Network Chefs and have probably made a dozen recipes from all of the books combined. I've owned Gwyneth's book for less than 48 hours and I've already made the slow-roasted tomatoes, her dijon vinagrette salad dressing, tomato-mozzarella crostini, teriyaki salmon, and fried brown rice. Delicious, and my 4 year old ate it up. She has a lot of tips in there about cooking with kids, how to change a recipe in the end to make it more palatable for kids, and she's right. It works. Her recipes are stuff I already eat but she makes them so much more healthy. She's honest about the way she eats, and why she cooks, and her introduction is heartwarming. I started just flipping through the book and couldn't put it down. She's not who I thought she was! I can't wait for another cookbook from her... in the meantime I will devour this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book with healthy recipes June 6 2011
By rebma03
This book has allot of really healthy recipes in it. Gwyneth Paltrow writes about why she eats the way she does and the recipes call for organic or health conscience ingredients. What I really love though about this book is that; although she is into super healthy and organic food products, she has provided a chart indicating what you can substitute for ingredients (such as duck bacon) which may not be readily available to you in the supermarket, but will also work in her recipe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some hits, some misses July 6 2011
By Mom123
I don't think it's fair to write a review for a cookbook without first trying out some of the recipes. I've made the Slow Roasted Tomatoes, yummy but time consuming, the Vegetarian Chili, really flat tasting so I added some of my on spices to it and LaLo's Famous Cookies, not bad but I think I should have had more jam in them and underbaked them slightly. These cookies get extra points because they are vegan.

I liked that the book had different types of recipes and offered up ways to make certain recipes vegetarian/vegan. I liked the various stories in the book and to be fair I don't feel liked I've tried enough recipes to recommend it but if you're a fan of Gwyneth then you will enjoy her stories and certainly give the recipes a try for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! May 26 2011
I've only had this book a few days and I've made 3 recipes so far - all of them have been fabulous! The pizza was the best I've ever made (I don't have a wood burning pizza oven in my back yard so I used my pizza stone in my oven), Blythe's Blueberry Muffins were also the best ever and the Miso Salad Dressing I've been using every day it's so delicious! I can't wait to try her other dressings as well as the soups...they all look so yummy!
