Oscar-winning actress and blogger of all things fancy and refined on Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow is in talks to play chef Gabrielle Hamilton in adaptation of her memoir Blood, Bones and Butter in which Hamilton blithely refers to her past relationships with girlfriends in the latest in what's becoming a  sub-genre of foodie-themed biopics. 

Owner and chef of New York’s Prune restaurant Hamilton is also a writer with an MFA from the University of Michigan, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In Blood, Bones and Butter Hamilton describes herself during her early college years as “a staunch Marxist feminist, a budding lesbian, a black nationalist sympathizer, and a literacy advocate,” AfterEllen reported earlier this year. For the past decade Hamilton has been married to a man, Michele, an Italian doctor, for whom she left her girlfriend at the time. The couple had two children together and are separated but not divorced at this point, Hamilton told The Huffington Post in March. 

The memoir chronicles Hamilton’s early life born to a French mother and artist father who made the sets for Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus, THR reports.

The film of Blood, Bones and Butter is being likened to the Nora Ephron box office hit Julie and Julia, which starred Meryl Streep as Julia Childs.

Paltrow, who landed on the public’s radar with her role in David Fincher’s Seven, won an Academy Award for her gender-bending role in Shakespeare in Love in 1998. She also starred in EmmaThe Talented Mr. Ripley and The Royal Tennenbaums, to name a few. Most recently she’s known to television audiences as the unconventional Spanish sub Holly Holiday on Glee. Who can forget how her character helped Santana (Naya Rivera) come to terms with being lesbian via a heartfelt rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide?"
