Advanced Praise for Gather & Graze

“What I have always adored about Stephanie is that somehow her energy and positive spirit are just as compelling as her over-the-top delicious food. With Gather & Graze, she shares all of that brilliant, fun-loving flavor and cooking intel that have made her such a shining star in the food world and her restaurants so coveted. Her recipes and menus are casual, craveable, and most of all doable. I dare you to open this book and not want to cook everything!”
—Gail Simmons, food expert, TV host, and author of Bringing It Home: Favorite Recipes from a Life of Adventurous Eating

“I’ve been a huge fan of Stephanie’s from the very first bite I took at Girl & the Goat, and my love for her as a chef and a person has steadily grown ever since. Getting married and starting a family may have been the best thing that ever happened to her as a successful entrepreneur, focusing her intensity and realizing that time poverty was part of the new equation. One of the best books on cooking at home is one of the results of that math. Gather & Graze not only is filled with spectacular recipes that will delight the home cook, but the way the food fits into all our lives, coming together to share, is the real genius of this superbly crafted book. This isn’t a show-offy book either, it’s a real life primer on the best way to eat and entertain for family, friends, and loved ones.”
—Andrew Zimmern

“Stephanie Izard is one of the most uniquely talented and vivacious chefs working today, and she’s managed to capture so much of what makes her food special on these pages.”
—Alton Brown
