Gwyneth Paltrow won't accept the accusation that she did not write her own cookbook. She wrote a response to The New York Times' article about culinary ghostwriter that Julia Turshen was the writer behind her best-selling book "My Father's Daughter".
"Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself," Paltrow posted on her Facebook page. Paltrow indeed is a close associate to Turshen who interviewed her for a Food and Wine magazine cover story. Turshen also produced the TV series hosted by Paltrow and Mario Batali about Spanish food.
The Times' article also mentioned other celebrity chefs who use ghostwriters such as Paula Deen, Jamie Oliver, Rachael Ray and Martha Stewart. It claimed Paltrow is now in the process of writing the follow-up of "My Father's Daughter" with Turshen.
