Preparing a meal that will impress Gwyneth Paltrow is no small feat.

On Sunday, the Goop mogul and vocal food lover showed off a gorgeous plate of food on her Instagram — but this time, the cooking credit went to some different chefs: Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden.

The dish looks like a plate full of summer: a vibrant salad with the “freshest sweetest peaches and burrata,” writes Paltrow. Other elements of the plate include fresh basil leaves, a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and chopped nuts for crunch. (Peanuts? Cashews? Blanched almonds? We have to know!)

“Thank heaven for @camerondiaz and @benjaminmadden,” she concluded her post.

Oh my freshest sweetest peaches and burrata. Thank heaven for @camerondiaz and @benjaminmadden

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Diaz flex her culinary muscle. Last year, she and her Charlie’s Angels co-star Drew Barrymore and pal Reese Witherspoon — who recently launched her own lifestyle site, Draper James  got together for a pasta-making class at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, California.

It certainly seems like the lesson paid off: We’re now adding “dinner at Cameron and Benji’s” on our fantasy culinary to-do list.

While we’re waiting on that invite, though, here’s our take on the dish. With just 6 ingredients and no cooking necessary, this is perfect for lazy summer days.

Summer Peach & Burrata Salad
Makes 4

4 peaches, pitted and sliced into wedges
8 oz. burrata or fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces
¼ cup small or torn basil leaves
¼ cup chopped toasted almonds
Balsamic glaze* or vinegar, for drizzling
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling

On a large platter, arrange peaches and burrata. Top with basil and almonds; drizzle with balsamic and olive oil.

*NOTE: If you don’t have or can’t find balsamic glaze, simply cook balsamic vinegar in a small pot over medium heat until reduced by about half.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
