"Rozanne Gold, renowned chef, journalist, and international food and restaurant consultant, has cooked for Presidents and Prime Ministers and began her career at age 23 as first chef to New York Mayor Ed Koch. Considered one of the most prominent women in the food world, she is the author of thirteen cookbooks and a four-time winner of the prestigious James Beard Award. Her most recent book, Radically Simple, was chosen as “one of the year’s best” by the New York Times and named one of the most important cookbooks of the past 25 years by Cooking Light Magazine. Named a “Mover and Shaker” by Business Week, she helped re-create New York’s magical Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center (where she was co-owner and consulting chef for 15 years), the legendary Windows on the World, and three of New York’s three-star restaurants. A graduate of Tufts University with honors in psychology and education, Rozanne recently “rescued” Gourmet Magazine’s 3500-cookbook library by purchasing it and donating it to New York University. She has been on the Board of the Greyston Bakery, American Friends of Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, Les Dames d’Escoffier, and was a trustee of Arts Horizons. She is a frequent guest on National Public Radio and writes for the Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal among many other national publications. An impassioned hospice volunteer and advocate in the field of contemplative care, she lives in Brooklyn with her husband and teenage daughter."
