Washington, Mar 18: Gwyneth Paltrow has taken on New York Times' allegation that she had hired a writer for her best-selling cookbook.
In a feature story about culinary ghostwriters, The New York Times described Julia Turshen as being one for Paltrow in 'My Father's Daughter', RadarOnline reported.
It brought a quick and decisive response from the actress/author on her Facebook page.
"Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself," she posted.
Turshen, a cook, author and TV producer, has had a very public association with the 'Iron Man' star.
She interviewed her for a Food and Wine magazine cover story, was a producer on a TV series Paltrow did with Mario Batali about the food of Spain, and has assisted her on both the cookbook and her Goop blog. (ANI)
