Praise

Gail Simmons is the Elizabeth David of the twenty-first century, and that is not hyperbole. Everything she writes, whispers, and illuminates is at once erudite, comforting, coaxing, simplifying, and ultimately convincing, such that every single person who reads her fantastic and mellifluous prose and recipes can cook her magnificent, tasty, and extremely satisfying and personalized food on the first try. I tried her beet cured salmon this week and it completely changed my pizza on Wednesday and the next morning it changed my breakfasts forever. Everything in this book will do the same for you, no matter what level you aspire to-from a complete rookie trying to make it happen, to a salty and experienced chef like myself.—Mario Batali, chef, entrepreneur, and philanthropist
I trust Gail's taste when it comes to chefs and food, and I have for many years. She is a beautiful force in the culinary world, and has the ability to translate her expertise so you can truly learn from her.—Drew Barrymore, actress and director
Gail has truly been inspired by her mother's cooking and her encounters with some of the greatest American chefs. She has mastered a knowledge of tradition and the art of casual cuisine shared among family and friends and is a well-travelled cook who combines her past and present culinary adventures. Driven by her desire to cook in a personal way, Gail's book brings you the dishes she fell in love with. BRINGING IT HOME is a wealth of know-how for any avid home cook.—Daniel Boulud, chef/owner, the Dinex Group
If there's a gal who's game for anything, it's Gail. She's a woman of exploration and adventure. Born and bred to be a lover of great food, Gail is a force to be reckoned with. Whether she's reading, writing, critiquing, or honing worldly inspiration hands-on, her mind (and appetite) is a sponge for every delicious bite along the way. A front row seat to a simple snack or insane meal cooked by this wonder woman? We are in great hands.—Christina Tosi, founder, CEO, and chef, Milk Bar
The recipes look so good that they might kind of compete for your attention as to what you might want to try first, but what's also special about Gail's book is that she's helping to teach how to be a great instinctual chef even beyond the recipes. She shares all sorts of techniques and kitchen secrets to arm you for whatever you decide to make.—Bravotv.com
Most people know Gail Simmons from her longtime gig as one of the judges on Top Chef, but behind the tough-minded critic lies an avid home cook-and a born teacher. Along with food writer (and frequent Epi contributor) Mindy Fox, she's crafted a super-approachable slew of recipes that have surprise insights tucked away.—Epicurious
