Throughout her culinary career, chef Rozanne Gold has given
much thought to the notions of simplicity and sophistication
in cooking. Now, after years of experimentation, she has
come to this conclusion: Simplicity is the art of combining
a few essential ingredients with a minimum of effort in
order to create food that neither looks or tastes like a
shortcut; food that is authentic enough to serve with pride
and savor with pleasure.
In Radically Simple, Gold demonstrates this art to its
fullest, manipulating the interplay of time, technique, and
number of ingredients to create bold, sophisticated dishes
bursting with global flavors. She offers an entire chapter
of elegant 10-minute salads; delectable soups that take less
than 5 minutes to prepare and others with such depth of
flavor they taste like they’ve been simmering all day. Her
opinionated take on roast chicken yields a peerlessly moist
and tender bird without so much as a sprinkling of salt and
pepper, while her recipe for pineapple flan transforms
sugar, eggs, and bottled juice into a creamy and decadent
taste of the tropics. From a 1-minute mustard sauce for her
last-minute gravlax to a “Peking” pork shoulder that
slow-roasts under a savory blanket of hoisin and scallions,
these dishes are truly stunning in their ease of
preparation, yet never sacrifice on flavor or presentation.
Even Gold’s procedures are revolutionary: All are conveyed
in 140 words or less.
With hundreds of signature recipes that you will return to
time and again, Radically Simple provides both the tools and
the inspiration to make memorable meals on a nightly basis
and rediscover the satisfaction that comes from time well
spent in the kitchen.
