Adair Seldon is an award-winning freelance copywriter and consultant who has worked with major ad agencies and clients, ranging from the fields of entertainment, travel, food and wine to luxury automotive brands. She has also written for the theatre, and her musical Frida and Diego, not surprisingly, features a steamy seduction song over a mean chicken mole.

In 2009, she parlayed two of her greatest pastimes — overthinking and overeating — into the humorous blog Lentil Breakdown. This led to the investigative work that has made her a fair-food advocate, working on the GMO labeling campaign in California as well as other critical issues.

Adair has been featured in Bon Appétit, Los Angeles Times, Women’s Health, Yahoo’s Shine, the Bing Food and Drink app and more. Whether praising a pea or appraising the planet, this wry culinary inquisitor brings it all to the table.
