Gwyneth Paltrow Cooks Better Than Eva Longoria

Either this, or she writes better. Both Hollywood stars have made their entrance into the cooking world, hoping that one day they would be the next Martha Stewart. Right now, they’re just wannabes. But enough joking.

New York Times bestsellers list is a golden list. It’s every writer’s dream to hit the NY Times list. Well, this had already happened for Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and desperate housewife Eva Longoria.

Paltrow’s cookbook, named “My Father’s Daughter” was ranked 7 in the top 10. The book is dedicated to her father, famous pastry chef Bruce Paltrow, and it includes, along some of her parent’s secret recipes, a series of family pictures, some of them fumy, some of them sweet.

Despite the fact that it was postponed for a number of times and the public was expecting it like hotcakes, there were a lot of critics that disapproved with the quality of the book. Some say she has this nasty habit of getting herself into situations she has no business being into. Just because her husband is a singer, that doesn’t mean she’s got a good voice.

Just because she is the daughter of a pastry chef, this doesn’t make her a food expert. Others say she was uninspired when making this book, being far less talented than Mr. Paltrow and making this difference even more evident.

But despite all criticism, Americans paid 30 dollars per copy and assured a great bestselling spot for it. She must have done something right.

Eva Longoria’s book is called “Eva’s Kitchen – cooking with love for family and friends”. She also has a background of food family business. Unlike Gwyneth, she actually runs two restaurants. Nonetheless, when reading the Amazon users reviews for the book, they are split. Some consider that the recipes are too easy and the book is not worth it. Others say this is the best selection of authentic Mexican food. I guess it depends on the experience you have in the kitchen and on your general opinion on Mexican food. Eva’s book was ranked 8 in the New York bestseller list.

All in all, it’s not a big difference between the spots and it’s a great achievement for both of them, if we take into account that in the category their books were included, they were the only Hollywood stars to appear as authors.

Gwyneth Paltrow Called Her Grandmother The C-word

Have you seen Gwyneth Paltrow lately? Well, “Chelsea Lately” has seen her. A few days ago, the blonde Oscar-winning actress was invited to Chelsea Handler’s TV show to promote her cooking book. Yes, Gwyneth can cook. She got that from her dad. The cooking or the self confidence – we’re not sure.

The fact is that, while taking about the book and how great it was for her to have that experience of writing about the intimate act of cooking with her children – by the way, in case you didn’t know, kids can crack eggs just fine; Gwyneth’s son, Moses, does it with no problem – both girls started talking about their grandmothers which, by coincidence were both called Mutti. “Mutti” was a nickname derived from the German word “mutter” which means “mother”. “Mutti” would be “mommy”.

Both the grandmothers were of German origin. But despite the familial warm name given, it appears they were pretty nasty. During the show, Chelsea wanted to share her opinion about her grandma: “My Mutti was a real bitch!” Gwyneth immediately replied: “My Mutti was a real c***!” Ouch! That would have hurt our ears if it weren’t censored. Did you ever imagine sweet Gwyneth having a filthy mouth? She then explained: “She hated my guts. She tried to poison my mother against me, but it didn’t work, because I have a great mother. She was just tough! She must have not been very happy, she must have had a lot of pain, because she was mean as hell!” Chelsea appeared to have had a similar experience with her Mutti, which led to the natural conclusion: “I don’t now what it is about that name but they should stop giving it to people!”

Thankfully, Paltrow’s mother is far more different that Mutti. First, because she is not called that. Apple and Moses’s grandmother didn’t want to be called “grandma” either. So, Paltrow explained, she came up with this new nickname, “Woof” that she tried to get to stick. “It’s even her e-mail address” she said. But creative 6 year old Apple wouldn’t take it. She named her Lalo, and Lalo it remained.

Gwyneth’s cooking book is named “My Father’s Daughter” and can now be found in stores. It has earned a well deserved spot 7 in the New York Times bestsellers list, right above Eva Longoria’s cookbook. They both have the same price, 30 $, so what made the difference? Oh, but this will be the subject of another article.
