Sharing Family Recipes from Gwyneth Paltrow

I have noticed several celebrities who have come out with cookbooks giving a nod to the family members that inspired them. I was so tickled when Gwyneth Paltrow gave an IceMilk Aprons shout out in her funny Mother's Day column on LA WEEKLY { check it out  here } last month, so I wanted to return the favor with a little look into her first cookbook - My Father's Daughter. My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness - what could be a more perfect theme? She found her passion of cooking from her father and shares her favorite family recipes and family stories. Sure to be a heirloom treat!

And, if you haven't signed up for Gwyneth's GOOP emails, be sure to pop over to do so. I love her picks & tidbits, and know you will too.

And Then There Were Five.

And just when I thought I had mastered the "basics" of cooking, along comes a new taste. Sweet. Sour. Salty. Bitter. And, now ... Umami.

While I'm intrigued by the concept in and of itself, I was instantly swooning over the simplicity of the packaging. I'm a sucker for an aluminum tube.

And, special thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow over at Goop, for sharing this wonderful new treasure - which she says will be at Dean & Deluca (re-swooning ..) this month!

Have you tried the newest Taste No. 5?
