Normally we’re excited to start the new year with a bit of a challenge, but this year, we thought, let’s take it easy. The 2021 five-day detox includes recipes that are simple, adaptable, wholesome, and delicious. We’ve included potential substitutions throughout—none of this is scripture, and riffing is highly recommended.
Alison Cayne, founder of the NYC cooking school Haven’s Kitchen, knows a good sauce. She developed a line of super fresh, flavor-boosting, time-saving sauces for busy home cooks. And she stopped by HQ to show us just how easy it can be with her tahini-roasted chicken thighs recipe—complete with her Golden Turmeric Tahini sauce and quick-pickled onions and currants.
GP said it best: “Pizza is the greatest food of all time.” When David Nayfeld, chef and co-owner of San Francisco’s Che Fico, visited GP, they turned his signature sourdough into two different pies with incredibly flavorful crusts. We took down the recipes for the simple margherita pizza and Brussels sprouts, pancetta, and ricotta combo—along with Nayfeld’s instructions for those who want to make his dough from scratch.
If your friends and family are allowed to travel this holiday season, they’ll likely arrive at your home road-trip-weary and in need of a stiff drink, extra pillows, and velvety-soft sheets. That means it’s time to dial up the cozy, elevate the guest room to oasis status, and get this hunkered-down holiday on lock. And if you’re spending the holidays solo, may we suggest giving your own bedroom the guest room upgrades below?
Our goop test kitchen is nothing short of a dream—airy, open shelves! high ceilings! movable butcher-block islands! marble countertops!—that was over a year in the planning and the making. We centered the design around a sleek, high-tech range that has everything (including a sous-vide function) but the kitchen sink. Because the goop kitchen functions year-round in holiday-ish mode (events, multiple dishes being made at once), food director Caitlin O’Malley relies on a deep cast of must-have essentials to keep the deliciousness coming, no matter how busy it gets.
It’s the last month of a long year, so we’re looking ahead and embracing wanderlust with a dreamy, drool-worthy cookbook; making time for more sunrise yoga sessions; and supporting the local restaurants that got us through 2020.
We love food. And we love the opportunity to share it—at a table with others when we can, but also by dropping off goods at a local food pantry, picking up groceries for an elderly neighbor, and making donations to organizations that can get meals directly to the folks who need them. And that need has grown exponentially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here, a few ways to give back and get involved now.
New Year’s Day falls on a Friday this year: If you have a long weekend to end the holiday break, might we suggest centering your plans around a cozy breakfast menu? We’ve gathered the recipes (both sweet and savory) that will make you want to put on another pot of coffee, grab a crossword puzzle, and linger.
In the spirit of making lemonade out of lemons: Consider breaking with some traditions when it comes to holiday menus this year. Smaller gatherings and unconventional celebrations call for kitchen creativity—and you can embrace it by making whatever you want. Intimate seafood feast for two? Absolutely. Skipping the roast and going all in on sides? Sure, why not. Sitting down to a party-worthy spread of apps, hold the party? Thought you’d never ask.
Food means a lot to us at goop. Whether you’re a passionate cook or a non-chef in need of an easy sheet-pan dinner on a busy weeknight, or you’ve decided to try a full-on healthy detox, we’ve got all kinds of recipes, ideas, videos, and even shopping lists to make your time in the kitchen as easy, fun, and (for the most part) healthy as possible.
We’ll help you plan your week with kid-friendly recipes, one-pot meals, healthy slow-cooker ideas, packable lunch ideas, ingredient guides, and even shopping lists. We’ll get you going for your chicest dinner party with epic cocktails, incredible food, and tons of inspiration. Check out our videos and you’ll see Gwyneth Paltrow in action, cooking with some of her favorite people; there are also brilliant cooking tutorials and how-to videos.
We love vegan, gluten-free, keto, and paleo options (especially cleaned-up comfort food), but we’re equally fond of…fries, so whatever food it is you crave, we’ve got the recipes, guides, hacks, tips, and expert advice to both support and inspire you.
