Michel Nuschan, owner and founder of Dressing Room, his homegrown restaurant in Westport, CT and CEO and president of Wholesome Wave Foundation.
“What a beautiful, compelling book! The recipes are at once simple, sensual, and customized for people with diabetes. Robyn’s overall comfort food message reassures that one’s diet needn’t compromise on pleasure when skewing healthy. Good food can do us a world of good, and can taste great in the process. Robyn makes this very clear.”

“After drooling over the beautiful food photography, I found myself wish that the Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook was a scratch and sniff cookbook. Robyn Webb has single-handedly changed the stigma of the diabetic diet from one of deprivation to celebration! Brava, Robyn!”
