Rozanne Gold revolutionized the art of simple cooking with her “1-2-3” cookbook series.  With Radically Simple, she takes the concept one step further, making restaurant-worthy food without a single extraneous motion or ingredient.  The themes of her culinary career—impeccable ingredients, trendsetting flavors, innovative techniques -- all come together in this critically praised tome. Says editor Pam Krauss, “this is one of the most acclaimed and well-reviewed cookbook ever.” Clear and practical instructions never exceed 140 words and consider the full matrix of a cook’s investment—the “three dimensions” of time, technique, and number of ingredients. Gold’s recipes are stunningly easy to prepare with soul-satisfying results – pork loin in cream with tomatoes, sage and gin, and ceviche of spring fruit with sesame seeds –are nothing short of inspired.      

“Rozanne Gold won’t have you looking under rocks for dinner. The author of the “1-2-3” series wants your meal to be as effortless as possible. And yet she has more in common with René Redzepi than with Rachael Ray… Gold’s global palate and talent for distilling a dish’s essentials put her in a minimal(ist) league of her own.” -Christine Muhlke, The New York Times

“Rozanne Gold is the personal trainer of food writers. She wrings stylish, streamlined, fabulous results with inspired combinations.”-Julia Moskin, The New York Times

“You have to hand it to Rozanne Gold, who has produced another winner of a practical cookbook in her new Radically Simple.”-Bonnie Benwick, The Washington Post

“This book… importantly elevates the quick-and-simple concept to a new level, becoming a benchmark.”-Julianna Grimes, Cooking Light

“Rozanne Gold is the godmother of super-simple home cooking… Radically Simple adds 325 recipes to the Gold standard.”-Scott Mowbray, Editor in Chief, Cooking Light

 “Her ingredients are sometimes fancy, but Gold's short-and-easy techniques put sophisticated fare within any cook's reach.” -Eliza Hamm, People

"This is a beautifully designed cookbook that puts flavor front and center. But here's where it parts ways with many of this season's new cookbooks: The cooking directions, by and large, are one fat paragraph long... That's not only radical and simple-it's refreshing." -The Miami Herald
