Why Are Lena Dunham and Gwyneth Paltrow Bonding Over Chili?
Lena Dunham’s good friend Jenni Konner—who also happens to be the showrunner on Girls—made an amazing bowl of turkey chili using Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe from Goop the other night when the pair had dinner. And like any good friend Dunham decided to let everyone know about it by posting a photo on Instagram.
Dunham wrote, "This is probably the only foodgram I'll ever do – I just felt so loved". Dunham even mentioned she took home a goody bag of the "protein packed" chili.
And who happened to notice the chili pic? Gwyneth Paltrow! She reposted it with a fun filter and wrote, “that’s my GIRLS! well done.” Is it too much to hope for a Paltrow cameo on Girls in the near future?
The chili recipe, which features sweet potatoes and black beans, is from Paltrow’s second cookbook It’s All Good. In January Paltrow announced she was working on a third cookbook that would tackle "clean comfort food." The Goop founder said about the book, “I think I might do appetizers for a party section. It’s like you’re having a party, and you don’t want to be in the kitchen—like make-ahead trays and stuff you can stick in the oven and have around. I would love easy party food and kid-family food, and that’s where I am right now.”
