Gweneth Paltrow To Star in Own Cooking Show

Gweneth Paltrow is putting her Movie star career on the backburner for now. Her newest title to be added to her resume, is TV cooking show host. The macriobiotic Paltrow will be leaving behind her husband and daughter apple for two months to tour Spain with chef Mario Batali, cooking and sampling the local delicacies with cameras following her every move.

The show will debut on the American PBS channel in October.

Here is a clip of the article that announced Gweneth's new endeavor:

"The actress, 34, is a famously fussy eater and has been ridiculed in the past for her bizarre and strict diet regimes.

They have ranged from strictly macrobiotic to Atkins to vegetarian-who-eats-fish diets. She still doesn't eat pork or beef, but is willing to sample other delicacies for the show. Gwyneth claimed: "I eat all that [Spanish] stuff. The crazy fish things, the eels, I love it all." What about the Iberico ham and cold meats?

TV programme will pay homage to a country where Paltrow spent many childhood summers.

It will also give her a chance to offer America a look at Spanish cooking. Channel 4 and ITV are currently in a bidding war to win the rights to show the programme over here.

A source said: "This is so far removed from what Gwyneth is used to that the show is sure to be a ratings winner. It can't fail.

One wonders if there's a macrobiotic recipe for disaster...

"Even if it's proper car-crash TV it will be entertaining at least." -Daily Mail

What do you guys think? Will you turn in to see what Gwenie cooks up?
