Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow's Cookbook Slammed By Critics

Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook has been slammed by critics who have branded the actress out of touch for featuring recipes that could cost around $300 (£196) a day to feed a family.

The Oscar winner's latest culinary guide, It's All Good, was released in the U.S. last week (begs01Apr13), but has been criticised for offering recipes which include ingredients such as duck eggs and costly Manuka honey.

One critic at Yahoo.com estimated it would cost around $300 (£196) a day to feed a family based on a selection of Paltrow's recipes, while Eater.com's Raphael Brion writes, "It's All Good is drenched in a chatty faux-populism that could only come from a rich person fearlessly boasting about her life of privilege."

The book has been labelled a "Bible of laughable Hollywood neuroticism" by Esther Zuckerman from The Atlantic Wire, and the New York Post's Hailey Eber likens the book to a "manifesto to some sort of creepy healthy-girl sorority".

The Shakespeare In Love star previously came under fire last month (Mar13) when she detailed her spring wardrobe essentials on her lifestyle blog Goop.com. The total price of the outfits featured came to more than $450,000 (£293,878).
