Gwyneth Paltrow working on new food magazine?

Gwyneth Paltrow has been venturing deeper into the food world in recent years, and is now rumored to be working on a food-related magazine project.

According to a source, “It’s a super-secret project.” It is believed Hearst, who currently publishes the Food Network Magazine and Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine in involved.

Paltrow also happens to be releasing a cookbook, “My Father’s Daughter” next month. If the cookbook reaches bestseller status, it will further cement her “cooking” cred. The book includes an introduction from Mario Batali, with whom Paltrow has previously teamed with on “Spain – On the Road Again“, a PBS food series. Paltrow also runs her weekly newsletter Goop, which features food and cooking related tidbits.

Do you think Paltrow is about to launch a new food magazine?

In Depth With “Will it Blend” CEO Tom Dickson

Robert Scoble sat down with Tom Dickson, the CEO of BlendTec and host of the popular “Will it Blend?” videos.

Even though it clocks in at over an hour (looks like it repeats halfway through), this is a really great sit down with a food-product innovator. Tom provides insight about the innovations that go into making a great blender. Most of them were completely accidental, including their viral “Will it Blend?” hit. Another happy accident? The winglets on the blade were created because the blade didn’t fit, but when Tom got rid of the winglets the blender didn’t work as well, so they’ve stayed ever since.

Watch the latest “Will It Blend” video. Tom attempts to blend an iPad 2.

Do you have a BlendTec? What have you blended with it?
