Yesterday was Christmas at Eater HQ: My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness, the much-anticipated cookbook from actress/lifestyle-guru/country singer/cleanse practicioner Gwyneth Paltrow, arrived.
The cookbook is many things: it is aspirational and sweet, it is seasonally-minded, it is unintentionally very funny, and it offers dinner party ideas and patronizing "working-parent dinners." The recipes are not that different from the many other tomes out there. Well, except that it offers vegan and child-friendly alternatives and has a foreword from buddy Mario Batali and name drops Jamie Oliver, Leonardo DiCaprio, and her "favorite vegetarian friend," Stella McCartney.
