I think it's this relatable kitchen centered family tradition that draws me to Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook and mini-memoir, My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family and Togetherness. Reading passages about the values and loves instilled in her while working alongside her dad in the family kitchen reminds me of my own experiences. Paltrow's love of family and food is quite endearing and as with all her endeavors, she's just as down to earth as you could hope for an actress daughter of celebrity parents to possibly be.
Along with personal stories and insights into Paltrow's family values, there are tons of personal pictures, ideas to involve your kids in food preparation and, of course recipes for simple, but delectable meals, desserts, sides and sandwiches.
If you love hanging out with your family while you're preparing meals, you'll appreciate Gwyneth Paltrow's book. Its clear to see that she was raised in house full of love, as well as good eats.
