BY Christine Chang Hanway

Anyone who grew up in a household where food takes center stage will appreciate My Father's Daughter, by Gwyneth Paltrow (actress, singer, GOOP founder, stealth bon vivant, and Remodelista friend). In her first cookbook, Paltrow chronicles her culinary evolution, from growing up Chez Paltrow (and learning to cook with her father, Bruce) to developing her own repertoire of family favorites. My Father's Daughter features 150 recipes, including tips on how to involve kids in cooking and balancing healthy foods with homemade treats. "This is the food I cook for my family and friends, over and over again, the food that never fails me," Paltrow writes.

N.B.: Stay tuned for next week, when we present Gwyneth's Easter table setting at Rose Uniacke in London, photographed by Simon Bevan for Remodelista.
