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!

I don't understand why this warrants personal attacks. The lady has a lot of money, she made it big and has the right to do whatever she wants with it. Clearly, this book is not aimed at the masses. Sure people could be doing better things with their money, but it's a personal choice. Stop being so bitter and get on with your lives.

I know God has a sick sense of humor. I wish she loses all her money and becomes a waitress. I want to ANAL FUCK her and run a train on her with 10 other working class guys. Feed her leftover scraps and make her drink Big Gulp soda.

Hey, people, if you can't afford duck eggs, you can keep some ducks in the back yard and if you don't have a back yard, you can keep them in the bathtub. Leave poor Goop alone - she's only trying to make your sad lives better! (Wait - we already have Martha for that.)

She's not helping her stuck up rich bitch reputation. I like to cook and love to make unique stuff that makes everyone happy, but there's no way I'm going to spend that much money on just one dish. Someone should lock her in a room and force her to eat nothing but Top Ramen and Pop Tarts for a month (and generic store brand soda) and see if she gets a clue about what its like to be poor.

Well about time the old (erroneous) quote got updated. Now we can say "... so, let them eat "tuna salad'.

I have a feeling she's also trying to pickle herself to stay slim and young.

Yeah see...this is why a retired French chef like me & abunchah other trained, certified,and adapt kitchen witches dropped her " GOOP" ( army mick-muck!)...some think they are collecting recipes.....others are w o r k i n g @ a hotel or restaurant with a food cost budget to maintain! I also was a cook in the Canadian military reserves....full time at times! Same thing!$$ to give account thereof!

The people that can afford what she has in that book aren't cooking their own food.

I'll buy the book and pay for the salad if she'll promise to go away. Forever.

I've never been a fan of GP but it is really irritating when people just like, decide as a group to hate someone.

GROUPTHINK SUCKS!

I'm sure GP's recipes can be altered to accommodate your taste and your budget.
