Paltrow: Cookery book my own work

Gwyneth Paltrow has denied that she used a ghostwriter for her cookery book My Father's Daughter.

The Oscar-winning actress hit back at the claims by the New York Times, which suggested that the 2011 book - which was inspired by and dedicated to the memory of her late father Bruce - was largely written by cookery author Julia Turshen.

"Love @nytimes dining section but this week's facts need checking. No ghost writer [sic] on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself," the 39-year-old wrote on Twitter.

The New York Times story also hinted that the pair are working together again after their earlier collaboration, saying that Julia - who has worked with chef Mario Batali - is "writing a second cookbook with Gwyneth Paltrow after their collaboration on My Father's Daughter."

In My Father's Daughter, Gwyneth - who is married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and runs her own website - shares her favourite family recipes and personal stories of growing up with her dad and how she involves her two children in the kitchen.
