Rozanne Gold is a chef, international restaurant consultant, author, journalist, and four-time winner of the James Beard Award.


Rozanne was first chef to New York Mayor Ed Koch at the age of 23 and has cooked for Presidents and Prime Ministers.[1] She is best known for the trends she has inspired,[2] including "The Minimalist" column in the New York Times (which was based on her cookbook Recipes 1-2-3), Little Meals, which began the grazing craze; Cafe Greco, New York's first Med-Rim restaurant; Hudson River Cuisine for the 3-star Hudson River Club, and much more. Gold is Chef-Director of the restaurant consulting firm, Baum+Whiteman, best known[3] for creating Windows on the World; the Rainbow Room, where Gold was consulting chef and an owner from 1987-2000, and three of New York's three-star restaurants.[4]

She is the author of twelve cookbooks, including the award-winning[5] 1-2-3 cookbook series. Her latest cookbook, Radically Simple: Brilliant Flavors with Breathtaking Ease, was hailed as one of the year's "best" by the New York Times, People, and Good Morning America.[6] Rozanne Gold is a well-known food writer and journalist who has written more than 500 articles for national magazines, newspapers, and blogs. These publications include Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Cooking Light, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Huffington Post. In order to save it from its demise, Ms. Gold purchased the Gourmet cookbook library and donated it to New York University.[7] She is past President of Les Dames d'Escoffier, New York and is a trustee of Arts Horizons. She graduated from Tufts University cum laude and did graduate work at New York University.
