Gwyneth Paltrow's Cookbook Features $120 Tuna Salad
Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow has a new recipe book called It's All Good, though some critics feel it should be titled It's All Ridiculously Pricey.
As radar points out "Her egg white omelet calls for duck eggs and will cost $30.
"Her fish fingers recipe for kids will set you back $71.50.
"For tuna salad, you have to get Manuka honey, which averages about $25 a jar. The entire recipe will set you back $120."
The result could be $300 a day for a family of fine eaters.
But I don't have a problem with that. At least Gwynnie's not pretending she's targeting the masses. She's writing for her own kind--people who've made lots of money and who want to spent it on special honeys and fish fingers that are beautifully manicured.
if you don't like it, then don't buy the book. Which probably costs a fortune!
