You will feel as if you are having a conversation with a great chef as they stand before an open fridge, deciding what to eat.
Each chef's entry contains an anecdotal essay that sheds light on his or her personal and culinary background.

Chef's Fridges is very different from most cookbooks you find on the market. To be honest, the only book that we know that is similar to this one is Inside Chefs' Fridges. Europe, which is the first cookbook from Carrie Solomon and Adrian Moore.
In this new book, Solomon and Moore follow the footsteps of their first cookbook. The main difference between them is that this time they left Europe to explore their homeland, the United States of America. Despite being focused on North American Chefs, they couldn't resist comparing their iceboxes with a few European fridges.
