Famous for her movie roles and the low-carb diet she feed her kids, Paltrow hosted PBS food and travel show Spain… on the Road Again with Mario Batali. She also has a thing for "delicious, easy recipes," as evidenced by the titles of her two cookbooks, It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great and My Father’s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness. They include specialty dishes like brown rice pasta, sweet potato and five-spice muffins, and her father’s pancakes.
And if acting is imitating real life, Paltrow won’t have any trouble with her upcoming movie role. She’s in talks to star as chef/writer Gabrielle Hamilton in the upcoming film Blood, Bones & Butter based on Hamilton’s memoir. Just don’t make her eat any butter — or carbs — on set.
