Reviews for previous work;
'The art and observations in The Urban Cookbook are more enticing than the recipes. But that is probably the point. King Adz has pulled together 50 recipes, 25 urban talents and five cities in this very hip city guide that would make a great
Christmas present.' The Observer
'A dazzling mish-mash of styles and points of view, Adz's volume succeeds as a visual travelogue of street art and cutting edge design.' Publishers Weekly
'Really great stuff. Quirky, idiosyncratic, but mostly it gave a great feel for the complexities of hip, web-driven urban culture.' Eric Hansen, author of Motorcycling with Mohammed talking about The Urban Cookbook.
'Eclectic interviews, street art, graphics, and photography with a truly global urban youth perspective (uh, no, not "urban youth" like pictures of 50 Cent posing with a cognac in Vibe magazine).' Fallon New York
'Colourful and vibrant, the book is illustrated throughout with original photography, giving the reader a feel for the street life of the featured cities. One of the most refreshing and innovative cookbooks out there, The Urban Cookbook
reminds us of the creative and community spirit that surrounds food.' Pimp Guides
'Just when you thought graffiti books were becoming a bit formulaic King Adz pops up with The Urban Cookbook which combines street food, art and style into one image packed volume. He takes the best of all three forms and mashes it all up intoa thoroughly enjoyable visual feast…King Adz really knows how to bring things alive with his obvious passion for the subject.' Art of the State

In the end, it shouldn't have been a book, but probably a documentary. As a book it just is really boring, hard to get into and uninteresting.
I actually found the films promoting the book more interesting than the book itself.
Shame, I was expecting to uncover a few gems in it.

Great book with more than 300 pages of magic images. Learned how to connect street art with pizza. First time I heard about Sabich and will definitely go after that. Read morePublished on 6 Nov. 2010 by Tilleke Schwarz
