Editorial Reviews


“Robyn Webb’s Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook is as good as it gets! Robyn’s clear and creative recipes and obvious passion and reverence for the quality and source of ingredients are the perfect medicine for people with diabetes and their families.”
—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.”
—Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook

“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!”
—David Grotto, RD, LDN, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life!

Praise for Robyn Webb's latest cookbook, The Perfect Diabetes Comfort Food Collection:

Robyn clearly understands that having diabetes doesn’t mean the end of good eating. As a diabetes educator, I love The Perfect Diabetes Comfort Food Collection. It’s not just pages of complicated recipes, it’s a system of meal planning chock full of easy recipes, paired with 1-3 suggested sides to make the perfect meal. And if you’re a novice in the kitchen Robyn's taken care of that too. She gives tips for buying equipment, stocking your pantry and teaches techniques to ensure each recipe is a culinary delight.

Constance Brown-Riggs, MSEd, RD, CDE, CDN, author of The African American Guide to Living Well with Diabetes

For those with diabetes, or for that matter, health conscious people everywhere, Robyn Webb's Perfect Comfort Food Collection offers myriad great tasting, yet simple, creative meals that reflect how real people cook. The collection is a godsend and sure to become a go-to classic in homes everywhere. - Nathalie Dupree-cookbook author and television host

Author Robyn Webb really hits it out of the park with her latest book The Perfect Diabetes Comfort Food Collection. Her book approaches cooking in a simple, yet effective way by first breaking down and concentrating on a few cooking techniques, such as roasting and grilling. She then continues to describe a few core kitchen ingredients that she cross utilizes in many of her recipes. What I really adore about this book is how it focuses on popular food items, such as burgers, chicken breast, and meatloaf, and how to master the classic styles of each food. After giving you the ‘classic’ versions, Robyn then gets creative by making different variations to fit each person’s personal taste. As a registered dietitian and someone that loves food, I would recommend this book to anyone because it takes comfort food to a new level with its variety and craftiness, which is only surpassed by the fact that it focuses on diabetic eating principles. Robyn dispels the myths behind diabetic diets and shows how simple eating a whole foods diet really is. Get ready to take your taste buds on a flavor packed roller coaster ride.
