Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover and inside US Vogue’s August 2010 issue photographed by Mario Testino, in her downtown apartment in New York entitled “Beauty & the Feast.”Â Gwynnie always glows and looks free, happy and settled. But how white is her kitchen?
Inside she admits to being a neat freak, just like her Dad and she controls her time scheduling every hour.Â Gwyneth has at least one personal trainer and works out for two hours a day.Â She even part-owns a gym near her downtown Manhattan apartment business partner is Tracy Anderson).
In April 2011, Gwyneth is releasing a cookbook titled My Father’s Daughter.Â The recipes in My Father’s Daughter come from Gwyneth’s family, from simple restaurant dishes she’s liked, and occasionally from cookbooks, but her father’s cooking plays the leading role.Â She shares:
I always feel closest to my father, who was the love of my life until his death in 2002, when I am in the kitchen. I can still hear him over my shoulder, heckling me, telling me to be careful with my knife, moaning with pleasure over a bite of something in only the way a Jew from Long Island can, his shoulders doing most of the talking. I will never forget how concentrated he looked in the kitchen&.It was as if the deliciousness of the food would convey the love he felt in direct proportion&.Health food was never really on the agenda, it was about fun and deliciousness and togetherness&.The most striking aspect about his cooking was how much joy he derived from feeding people that he loved. I mean, genuine, bursting happiness&.This book is meant to channel the ethos of my father by sharing the greatest gifts that he imparted to me. Invest in what’s real. Clean as you go. Drink while you cook. Make it fun. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It will be what it will be.”
