In the vast culinary landscape we share, we’re all carving out a place for ourselves. Each of us in our own special way is a One Woman Kitchen. Come into the kitchen of Rozanne Gold, one of the most prominent women-in-food, to discover and learn from the rising female stars illuminating the culinary cosmos.
Author, Food Writer, and Pastry Chef Phyllis Grant - Completely Irresistible
Phyllis Grant may not yet be a household name, but she will be. She is a pastry chef, a food writer, and the author of an acclaimed new book "Everything is Under Control - A Memoir with Recipes". It's not easy to promote a book in the middle of a pandemic, but this book satisfies every inch of our souls with it's authenticity and candor about cooking and motherhood, and with mouth-watering recipes anyone can make. Phyllis is a wildly popular presence on Instagram at @dashandbella, where you can see her cooking, philosophizing, and sharing personal stories from her gracious kitchen in Berkeley, CA. Phyllis joins author and chef Rozanne Gold to share her story, including how her rigorous training in modern dance led to a life in four-star kitchens, how motherhood became a major turning point in both wondrous and difficult ways, how Phylls' unique, poetic, and spare writing style has everyone talking, how her Jammy Tomato-Anchovy Sauce became a genius recipe, and why Ruth Reichl calls her recipes "completely irresistible."
Food Writer/Editor, Restaurant Critic, and TV Producer Ruth Reichl - A Life-Long Love of Food
Ruth Reichl has been a game-changer in the world of food since the 1970's, when she was part of a cooks' collective in Berkeley, CA. From there she created an almost legendary career as Food Editor of The LA Times, as Restaurant Critic of The NY Times, and as Editor in Chief of Gourmet Magazine. Ruth is a beloved author, memoirist, winner of several James Beard Awards, and everything about her approach to food has been unique and inspiring. She is a thought-leader and food advocate, but ultimately she is a storyteller who cares as deeply about the people who grow our food as the people who cook it. Ruth joins author and chef Rozanne Gold, in the first remote recording for "One Woman Kitchen", to share her inspiring and endearing story. Ruth shares how she first honed her skills as a chef at only 7 years old, about how writing a cookbook at age 21 was her way through the kitchen door, how fearlessness and happiness served as her most important strength, and how nothing mattered more to her than cooking dinner for her husband and son.

Revisiting Niki Russ Federman of Russ & Daughters
In the time of the COVID-19 crisis, we are highlighting the extraordinary women in the food world who are running "essential businesses." One such woman is Niki Russ Federman, co-owner of the legendary Russ & Daughters. Although Niki has always shown her customers and employees extraordinary love and care, these efforts have been ramped up so many of her employees can no longer work. Niki struggles every day to negotiate new challenges. This year, Russ & Daughters will host their Sixth Annual Passover Seder live on Zoom on Thursday, April 9th, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. The proceeds of the event (featuring Rabbi Andy Bachman, the Russ family, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall and more) will go directly to support Russ & Daughters employees. Recommended donation is $20. There will be hundreds of people from all over the country joining in. We are re-broadcasting Niki's inspiring story to coincide with the upcoming holidays.

Revisiting Chef and Caterer Nuhma Tuazon - Filipino and Flying High
Times have changed. And that is also true for "One Woman Kitchen." As we move from Rozanne's "studio kitchen" to her actual Brooklyn kitchen, we are taking this opportunity to re-publish an episode with Chef Nuhma Tuazon who is now on the "front lines" of feeding people. We am in awe of what she is doing and how she figured out how to cook and serve her clients while taking personal care of her employees and making sure everyone is safe and healthy. It is no small task. It is monumental. Rozanne spoke to her this morning about what is means to be truly "essential" during this COVID-19 pandemic. This week's show begins with a personal intro from Rozanne. We know you will enjoy listening to Nuhma's inspiring story for the first, or second!, time. Please take good care. https://nuhmanyc.com You could have never predicted that a journey that started in a family business of waffles and comfort food would end up in a world of high end food and dining. But that’s exactly where Nuhma Tuazon is. This Philippine-born chef, who is French-trained by top masters, created and owns a prestigious, boutique, NY catering company NUHMA NY—and has become on of NY’s highly respected caterers (both on the ground — and in the air). She’s an entrepreneur who’s entirely self made, and who comes from a joyful family wherein everyone was involved with food. Nuhma share her story and a legacy recipe with author and chef Rozanne Gold, and prepares an incredible dessert that seems as if it sits on a cloud.
