This is a very pretty celebrity cookbook, perfect coffee table book. It has a good selection of simple recipes which are enhanced by beautiful photos and rather interesting introductions+anecdotes -a pleasant read if you are a G Paltrow fan. However, apart from a few recipes, I had a definite sense of deja vu as I flicked through. I am not saying that the recipes are not good but a lot of them are nothing to write home about if you already have a few good basic cookbooks. If you don't, not a bad buy at all, if you do, check it out first before buying to see if it meets your expectations or you might be disappointed...

I am puzzled by negative reviews this books gets, but suppose so many men so many minds.

I personally found it to be very inspiring and useful. I own dozens of good cookery books, and if I can find one recipe from a book that I would use more than once, I consider money well spent. In quite a lot of celebrity chefs written books I could not find any, maybe with the exception of some J Oliver books. Here she may be a movie star but her cooking style is very simple. There may be some recipes with lobsters or exotic ingredients, well if this is part of her weekly shopping list (suppose she can afford it!) then why not? There are still plenty of simple recipes for the rest of us.

Book is beautifully printed with great photos - personally I find it hard to use a recipe book that does not have good pictures. I also like the fact than many recipes are made for the children, which I as a parent of young kids can only appreciate, there are not many kids recipe books out there.

Most recipes are light, easy and - can I say so? - optimistic, there is nothing laborious about them at all. They are simple enough for everyone to make.

Gwyneth has a great conversational style that really carries her love of food and family. It's a neatly laid out cookbook with nice photography, easy to follow recipes and enough stories from Gwyneth to make it really personal.

I really like the way Gwyneth has set out this book and her approach to food in general. It is clear she loves food and, like all of us, food has a strong association with family, friends and, generally, good times and memories. I have only tried one recipe as yet, the crab cakes, which were delicious and whilst they may not have looked as neat and even as Gwyneth's they tasted absolutly lovely. I like recipe books with a bit of character and where the author's personality shines through. It feels a bit like my sister is in my kitchen with me reading Gwyneths chatty style.

I have enjoyed flicking through this book as much as i have enjoyed cooking from it!

UPDATE (01/08/11): I have now made the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies which are so easy to make and really delicious. I think the maple syrup really makes them special. Its hard to believe the ingredients are all healthy options when the cookies taste so indulgent! I have also made a couple of the salad dressings. Again all very tasty. Finally, the kale crisps are lovely and I would never have thought of preparing kale this way.

I got this out of the library in order to see what I thought of it as I am running out of cookbook spaces - especially as people buy me ones I'm not interested in. Cookbooks are essentially a personal thing: I don't like Jamie Oliver's or Gordon Ramsey's style - since they're chefs and money is no object and someone else does the cooking I find their books irritating or complicated. I am, however, a massive Nigella fan - Nigella Express & Kitchen are great. Anyway, I thought I liked the look of some of the meals and I have enjoyed making some stuff out of it. There's simple, complicated, normal and super-healthy, etc. However, remember, Gwyneth lives in London where she has access to red miso, a variety of noodles, brioche loaves you cut yourself etc. Some of us who don't live down south (and I wouldn't say I am a million miles away from civilsation) may struggle. She recommends websites - great! - except the Asian website she offers wants £14 for its cheapest delivery fee. Alas I don't think so. There is the sense at times that crabs, lobsters, duck, and unique ingredients are abundant everywhere or that normal Jo is prepared to pay a fortune for delivery. Sorry Amazon you have spoiled me with free delivery! Despite this the lemon and parmesan pasta is nice, the duck broth and pea & basil soup (her version - similar and fresher to Nigella's) all have potential. Also please note: she doesn't eat red meat and her daughter is a vegetarian so there's one beef recipe. Red meat lovers: don't bother! There's a lot of nice duck recipes which might provide a refreshing substitute. My recommendation: buy it (it's a reasonably priced book at a tenner or so) but don't necessarily expect to be able to make everything - especially if you're not a fan of seafood.

I bought this book when it first came out - sometime in 2011. At the time of writing this review I have just had to order a second copy because my first is so battered and torn, with pages stuck together from so much use at the side of my stove. This is the only time I have actually had to replace a cookbook because I have used it so much - and that in a little over a year. The book itself is a lovely item, with beautiful photography, clearly presented recipes and narrated all the way through by Gwyneth Paltrow, who writes thoughtfully about food and family. The recipes are generally easy to prepare, healthy, varied and delicious. I have not been disappointed by one single recipe. Many of the recipes from this book are now staples in my house and her teriyaki salmon got my kids eating salmon. I can't recommend it enough.
