Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"From the discovery of vanilla to how chilies spread since Columbus, this is packed with culinary lore and regional history, and will complement the shelf of any food enthusiast who loves history." —The Bookwatch"If the ecology movement is about saving the planet, then these are food ecologists, committed to saving the planet's agricultural capacity." —Los Angeles Times"The stories of these plant foods 'read like biological and historical whodunits,' say the editors and they are right. This is a most readable book. Botanists, biologists, food historians, and anyone who cooks and eats will enjoy it." —Academic Library Book Review"Both a celebration of the rich diversity of New World foods and a thought-provoking look at some of the issues facing agriculture in the future, this volume is a timely and stimulating read." —Wilson Library Bulletin
