Gwyneth Paltrow has launched a new online book club for food fans.
The actress has picked Roberta’s Cookbook as the first tome and she wants feedback from fans of her blog as they bake, broil, steam and smoke their way through the recipes.
Explaining the new Cookbook Club initiative on the site on Thursday, the Emma star wrote, “This was not my idea…, which is probably why it’s so good. While I have always liked the idea of a book club (sorta) I am just not that type of gal.
“Until one of my gorgeous girls suggested we do a different book club of sorts. A cookbook club! Now, as someone who gets in bed and reads cookbooks cover to cover as if they were novels, this idea was scintillating. We set off to find the ideal book to kick it off using the same criteria we would if we were choosing a novel, something challenging, beautiful, and with the possibility of becoming a classic. We landed on Roberta’s Cookbook.
“Please cook with us and tell us what you learned, how you modified, and what the next instructional cooking club tome should be. Happy cooking.”
Paltrow is a cookbook author herself – in 2008 she co-wrote the book Spain… A Culinary Road Trip with Mario Batali and in 2011 she released My Father’s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family and Togetherness and Notes From the Kitchen Table.
Last year, the actress published a book titled It’s All Good: Delicious Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great.
