Never Trust a Skinny Chef

November 25, 2008 at 6:45 pm 1 comment

As we prepare for the biggest food day of the year, it’s important to know where to look for the best food inspiration. Gwyneth Paltrow, actress in such critically acclaimed movies such as Hush and View From the Top, has launched a weekly e-newsletter called GOOP. The tagline is “nourish the inner aspect.” Fashion sense and soul, perhaps, could be nourished by GP, but certainly not body. As the old adage goes, never trust a skinny chef.

While ensuring a good dose of fiber and certainly well-intentioned, her Buckwheat and Banana pancakes pale in comparison to what some of her heftier cohorts in the field produce. Do you doubt for a moment the joy of sinking your teeth into Paula Deen’s hashbrown breakfast, french toast casserole or breakfast burrito? Or even question whether Ina Garten’s breakfast bread pudding is good for you?

Some areas are best left to the professionals.

    I totally agree. I have recently become rather obsessed with the Food Network (I know, I’m a latecomer) and I swear I can smell Paula Deen’s cooking through the television. Just yesterday she made cherries jubilee and using a spoon wasn’t good enough so she ended up drinking it. That’s the kind of woman I want a recipe from!
