Amazon.com Review

Busy cooks seeking fussless, intensely flavored dishes will embrace Rozanne Gold's Recipes 1-2-3 Menu Cookbook: Morning, Noon and Night, the sequel to her award-winning Recipes 1-2-3. In that ingenious book, Gold showed how recipes could be pared down to three ingredients each (salt and pepper aside) to achieve dishes that were more than the sum of their parts. In this book, she presents over 60 menus of three-ingredient dishes, 260 recipes in all, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner--course after course of simple, healthful food based on easy-to-find ingredients inventively treated.

Want a lovely weekend breakfast? Try Gold's "Room Service" menu of Poached Eggs with Lime Hollandaise, Smoked Salmon Quesadillas, and Fresh Strawberries with Gingered Yogurt--nine ingredients, total. Hungry Guests, a menu for streamlined entertaining, features Frisée and Beet Salad with Goat Cheese Dressing; Chicken Fricassee with Pearl Onions and Lardons; Celery Root Gratin; and Warm Banana Tarts--a 12-ingredient feast. Other menus present equally satisfying few-ingredient recipes that even novice cooks can prepare. Throughout, Gold provides useful strategies for time-saving cooking; her "Grapenotes" offers wine suggestions to complement the dishes and "Menus from the Healthy Kitchen" lists recipes that are fat-free, low-fat, and low-calorie. You'll find yourself mixing and matching dishes to create your own few-ingredient menus--a tribute to Gold's unique approach and enticing recipes. --Arthur Boehm

From Publishers Weekly

Following up on her 1996 James Beard Award-winning Recipes 1-2-3, Gold assembles new flavor-focused recipes into complementary menus. There's no arguing with the principle that a few fresh ingredients, attentively combined, yield a clean, often surprising taste. In Gold's handling, this idea is exponentially enhanced: among the morning menus is the delicately balanced Poached Eggs with Lime Hollandaise; Smoked Salmon Quesadillas, and Fresh Strawberries, Gingered Yogurt. Midday offerings include Lemony Tuna Salad with Tuna Tahina Dressing, Sweet Pepper Green Beans, with black olives, and Fruit Salad Vino Cotta (grapefruit sections and strawberries in reduced white grape juice). A sample dinner embraces Jumbo Lump Crab, Avocado Sauce; Chicken Paillards, Adobo Style; Smoky Pink Beans and Rice, and Coconut Ice Cream with Blue Curacao. Noting that these menus often break with tradition?scanting starches, eschewing breads?Gold encourages cooks to mix and match, practicing their own ingenuity. Many of the recipes rely on reductions of fruit juices or wine; cream and cheeses contribute depth to others. Eggs appear often and desserts make ample use of fruits. Some readers may object to precious menu titles (A Poem for the Table; Med-Rim Mosaic), but aside from that minor cavil, Gold's latest collection offers beautifully constructed, economically prepared recipes and menus.

This is one of the best cookbooks in my collection. Not only are the recipes simple with only three ingredients, they are delicious. I use this cookbook at least once a week.

I own or have cooked with all the Rozanne Gold cookbooks and each one is, well, solid Gold. Her recipes are simple, delicious, elegant even when they're just "homey food." The presentation is clear and simple and I have never yet tried one of her recipes and failed.

Thanks to Rozanne Gold, cranberries have evolved from a condiment to a side dish at our family holiday meals. Her Cranberry-Cherry Compote is spectacular. I made her complete Thanksgiving menu one year and it was phenomenal. Just because a recipe has only 3 ingredients doesn't mean it's simple. The way she handles those ingredients is masterful.
