This review is from: My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness (Hardcover)
I am really surprised by some of the negative comments about G.P and this cookbook stated below. I consider myself a very good cook and come from an italian immigrant family of great cooks and find this cookbook to be fantastic and a lot like how we cook at home (using simple, fresh, yummy ingredients/recipes to make up delicious meals). Yes it has many simple and basic recipes (like the brussel sprouts and carmelized cauliflower) but they are delicious and healthy and many people either dont know how to cook those things well or, like myself, need a reminder ("oh yeah, i havent cooked cauliflower like that in a while"). Many people dont make their own salad dressings and she offers several easy recipes for dressings that have a little more zing than basic oil and vinegar, can easily be improvised on and are so much better for you and tastey than bottled dressings. Additionally, there are many other more complex tastey recipes for the more experienced cook. There is a GREAT variety from which to choose (simple and hearty salads, warm and cold soups, meats and fishs) and so far the only recipe that I thought just didnt work was the same day pancakes recipe. the "bruce paltrow's pancakes", however, were some of the best I have ever had and this book alone is worth getting just for that recipe. If you like to eat good, clean, healthy but delicious food (that doesnt taste like healthy food) buy this cookbook. You wont be disappointed. And yes, she comes from a life of privilege but instead of holding it against her, why not enjoy her stories and be happy for her.
