Gwyneth Paltrow is ready to do some slicing and dicing, and she's got The New York Times on her chopping board!

The actress turned chef turned lifestyle GOOP guru has slammed the paper for running a piece that alleges she cowrote her best-selling cookbook, My Father's Daughter, with a ghostwriter.

Are things getting hot in this kitchen or what?!

Slip on your oven mitts, because here's what she had to say...

On her Facebook page, Paltrow wrote, "Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself."

There you go: can't get more definitive than that!

In a story on cookbook ghostwriters published last week, the paper claimed that food writer and chef Julia Turshen "is writing a second cookbook with Gwyneth Paltrow after their collaboration on My Father's Daughter."

Even more damning, the paper used the cover of Paltrow's cookbook as the main image for the story.

The funny irony here is that Paltrow's tome hit The New York Times' best-seller list, cracking the top 10 shortly after it was published last April.

Does this call for a follow-up food story from the paper about...breaking bread? Gwynnie might have a recipe or two for that!
