    Return Visit with Nasim Alikhani of Sofreh - Illuminating a Shared Humanity

    Return Visit with Nasim Alikhani of Sofreh - Illuminating a Shared Humanity

    We revisit this episode of One Woman Kitchen as an homage to Nasim Alikhani,  the chef and owner of the acclaimed Persian restaurant Sofreh, in Brooklyn. Nasim recently returns from Tehran visiting family and friends, says she has never seen her people in such despair, that these were truly the darkest of times. Nasim, who has lived through the revolution, the war between Iran and Iraq, the cultural revolution, and so much more, reminds us in this beautiful and poignant story that one woman's journey can illuminate a shared humanity. In this episode, originally aired May 29, 2019, Nasim connects us to happier times, and the beauty of Iran's culture through its food ways. Thank you, Nasim, for sharing your story then -- and now.

    This might sound like a movie pitch:

    A young woman leaves Iran after a revolution, comes to America to start a new life, becomes a mother, who was always cooking and more than 35 years later—with no professional training and against all odds, opens an acclaimed restaurant in New York at age 59, becoming the driver of a trendy new cuisine in Manhattan.

    For now, it’s not a movie. It’s the life of Nasim Alikhani, founder of Sofreh. Nasim joins Chef Rozanne Gold.

    Chef, Author, and Food and Wellness Advocate Ann Ogden Gaffney - Living with Nourishment

    If you think of the perfect blend of generosity and philanthropy in the food world, one woman you should think of is Ann Ogden Gaffney.

Classes and recipes (in both English and Spanish) help more than 150,000 people monthly, in a variety of communities, nourish themselves with style and grace. Ann joins author and chef Rozanne Gold to share how two cancer diagnoses transformed Ann from fashion industry star to a force of advocacy in food and wellness; why the idea of a one woman kitchen connects so strongly for her; and, how a minestrone soup her grandmother made (which she calls "jungle soup") informs almost everything she does. This is her inspiring story.

    Chef Patricia Willams of Ten Chairs - Culinary Choreography

    Chef Patricia Willams of Ten Chairs - Culinary Choreography

    When Patricia Williams retired from her glamorous career as an accomplished  professional ballerina at just age 30, she had no clear plan for what was next.  So, she created one. She wanted to cook, and soon enough found herself in one kitchen after another, and eventually as executive chef of the four star Quilted Giraffe and ultimately other trendy New York restaurants. She’ll tell you she never got paid as much as the men she worked with, but she’s stayed true to herself in an industry dominated by men. There are very few people with the resume Patricia has accomplished, and she embodies everything there is to love about women chefs. Her process in constructing menus and meals is ironically like watching a great dancer perform. Patricia shares her amazing story with author and chef Rozanne Gold, including about her creation of lazy duck; why she has had friendships with so many great jazz musicians; why after moving from Texas to New York, she never went back; and a glimpse into her unique pop-up dining concept Ten Chairs that was created ahead of its time and is still going strong 12 years later.

    Niki Russ Federman is an extraordinary ambassador for one of New York City’s most legendary food stores, Russ & Daughters.

And they are the curators of two Russ & Daughters restaurants, and the fabulous new Russ & Daughters bakery and take out shop in Brooklyn’s sprawling Navy Yard.

Within the NY food community Niki is already one its most prolific entrepreneurs. Niki shares with author and chef Rozanne Gold how Russ & Daughters began, how their bagels continue to share more than a century of history, and why Niki initially walked away --  then returned and never looked back. This is Niki’s inspiring, and very delicious, story.
