Praise for Edible Selby:
"Todd Selby has turned his curious eye to the kitchens of some of the world's most imaginative cooks, artisans, and foragers. Far too often, food and the people who produce it are hidden behind closed doors or lost in an industrial food system, so it's heartening to see this book champion those who have nothing to hide. With Todd's trademark good humor and disarmingly quirky style, "Edible Selby" is a pure celebration of the creativity and authenticity of the wonderful individuals who are bringing real food to the table."
- Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant
"Todd Selby's foray into the world of food is every bit as intriguing as his eccentric take on the world of interiors. Long live Signor Selby "
- Simon Doonan, Barneys New York creative ambassador
""Edible Selby" captures the energy and excitement of today's food world. This book is pure Selby."
- Thomas Keller, The French Laundry
"Books On My Gifts List...Photographer Todd Selby's scrapbook reportage on passionate cooks and famous chefs around the world. Messy, magnificent, inspiring."
--"Food & Wine" magazine
"Exploring the world for food, that's what "Edible Selby" is all about...and hopefully, you get really hungry when you read it."
--"New York Daily News"
"Photographer Todd Selby has an uncanny eye for the beauty of the unconventional kitchen; in his second book, he features cooks, chefs, and other culinary creative types in their workspaces--complete with recipes and witty hand-drawn illustrations."
"This is a book to read on the couch and leave there. Next you'll want to go to the kitchen and get crazy and make a mess. You will let your hair down, and the meal will be infused with life."
