Gwyneth Paltrow has a good friend in Jessica Seinfeld. When Jerry Seinfeld's better half stopped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to talk about her non-profit Baby Buggyand new tome The Can't Cook Book, talked turned to other celebrity-mom-chefs.

"Who are the other celebrities that you look up to that have written books?" asked host Abby Huntsman.

"Gwyneth Paltrow is an amazing cook," Seinfeld quickly responded. "She's one of my great friends and is truly an amazing cook."

"That's the criticism she gets: how can she write a cookbook when she's not a chef?" asked Huntsman.

"Oh, I hate everyone that criticizes her," replied Seinfeld. "You know what? They don't know her. Her book is amazing. I watched her create the whole entire thing....She makes the best chicken and gravy I've ever had, at any restaurant, anywhere. She's the real deal."

Last week New York Times food writer Mark Bittman also defended Gwyneth on HuffPost Live.
