“Anyone with even the vaguest interest in food (or other people’s houses generally) should order Carrie Solomon and Adrian Moore’s newly released Chefs’ Fridges.”—British Vogue

"If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite chef eats at home, now’s your chance to find out. Chefs’ Fridges hops all over the continents of North America and Europe, peeking inside the home fridges of Nancy Silverton, Hugh Acheson, Enrique Olvera, José Andrés, Jessica Koslow, and more acclaimed chefs."—Food & Wine

Find out what’s in some of the world’s most esteemed chef’s kitchens with this fascinating compendium that showcases more than thirty-five of today’s masters, including José Andrés, Christina Tosi, Alice Waters, Daniel Boulud, Nancy Silverton, Wylie Dufresne, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Ludo Lefebvre, and Carla Hall—in up-close profiles and gorgeous color photos, plus two recipes for the dishes they like to cook at home.

For authors Carrie Solomon and Adrian Moore, and demonstrably, to the rest of the world, chefs are intriguing creatures. Their creations shape our culture and become an indelible part of our experience. They make food delicious beyond our wildest dreams.
