Oscar-winning actress turned famous celebrity chef, Gwyneth Paltrow has cooked up a storm with the release of her recent cookbook, “It’s All Easy”. While most of us are crunching away on pizza or two minute noodles, the recipes created by Paltrow are nutritious, delightful and most importantly, easy!
Flicking through her book, it’s definitely not your average cookbook that only caters to conventional meals like a good steak or chicken soup with mashed potatoes. Instead it’s got your breakfast, lunch, dinner covered. It’s full of unexpected guests that have made themselves at home. It’s got a wide range of things if you’re simply craving something good! The book is thick but it’s a great way to de-stress by drooling at the great photographs, creative recipes and reading the anecdotes of the famed star’s private life and her passion for food.
The recipes inside this book are breath-taking and stunning. It’s not just limited to classic recipes but features plenty of unique dishes with a twist like bibimbap salad (for those who don’t know, it’s a Korean style salad without the green leaves or cheese!), cauliflower tabbouleh, Asian avocado toast and dessert includes balsamic-macerated berries with cashew cream! You might be thinking, how can an avocado toast be Asian or berries be dipped in cashew cream, but you’d be surprised at how excellent the combinations tastes and how simple it is!
Apart from food, Paltrow also caters to your drink needs, perfect for when you require an excuse to procrastinate – think healthy drinks and not just fruit smoothies but Matcha teas, coconut lattes or ginger and mint teas. Did I mention that this book is great for those who are vegans, gluten and lactose intolerant?
Let’s be honest, Paltrow’s book is a recipe of perfection and a lifesaver!
Grading: High Distinction!
