Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A veritable encyclopedia of everything tomato…” –Country Living

“Tomato lovers, this cookbook is for you.” –St. Petersburg times

"...everything you need to know about tomatoes." -St. Paul Pioneer Press

“This compendium of common knowledge and obscure facts about the tomato plant and its fruit can answer just about any question about the world’s most popular garden staple.” -Booklist

“…a perennial resource for cooks who want to make the most of nature’s lumpy, bumpy heirloom bounty. “

-Chile Pepper (magazine)

Publishers Weekly
The majority of Americans have never tasted a good tomato. Thankfully, Davis-Hollander has devoted his life to saving future Americans from the trend of tasteless tomatoes bred for uniformity, "grown in the off-season with low levels of light, picked green, and artificially ripened and then shipped three thousand miles," via the heirloom seed-saving and propagation efforts of his Eastern Native Seed Conservancy, in western Massachusetts. Every year, participants in ENSC's Epicurean Tomato Festival celebrate the mind-blowing diversity of hundreds of generations-old tomato varieties in a full spectrum of shapes and colors, from Aunt Ruby's German Green to Cherokee Purple to Orange Banana. Davis-Hollander's first book brings together familiar preparations, like tomato sauce and ratatouille, with contemporary restaurant innovations like Blue Ginger's Candied Tomato Tart with Five-Spiced Hazelnut Crust and exotic dishes like West African Chicken, Peanut, and Tomato Stew, along with specific recommendations for the best-tasting heirlooms for each. Bursting with history and folklore, this is also a practical handbook for identifying, growing and preserving heirloom tomatoes with an appendix on buying and saving seeds and a glossary explaining the difference between open-pollinated, indeterminate and hybrid varieties. Davis-Hollander may offer more than even the most devoted tomato lover would ever want to know, but his book is worth the price if only for the crucial lesson that tomatoes should never be refrigerated. Two-color illus. throughout. (May) Forecast: Davis-Hollander has little name recognition outside of a small network of local farmers and restaurants in the Northeast. However, Deborah Madison's name should help-she's a prominent vegetarian chef and cookbook author. The book follows the growing trend of buying and eating seasonal and locally grown food from farmers' markets. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Here are two celebrations of everyone's favorite summer vegetable. Lundy is a food writer and the author of Butter Beans to Blackberries, among other titles; coauthor Stehling is the chef/owner of a North Carolina restaurant called Early Girl Eatery (named after the tomato). She provides the history, science, and other significant tomato facts, while he supplies the recipes (some 50 in all), which are interspersed throughout the text. There are vibrant color photographs, lovely watercolors, reproductions of period advertisements and other memorabilia, and a chapter on the cult film Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! There is also a "Tomato Garden Primer" and a lengthy chart on growing and cooking with different varieties. Recommended for larger libraries. Davis-Hollander (founder & director, Eastern Native Seed Conservancy) presents a more ambitious but highly readable book. He includes a great deal more information, from a detailed chapter on heirloom tomato specifics and profiles of tomato growers and other notables to sidebars on tomato festivals around the country and a thorough guide to cultivation. Inspired by a diverse variety of cuisines, his 150 recipes-some of which come from well-known chefs (including Daniel Boulud and Rick Bayless)-are more appealing and simply mouth-watering. Recommended for most collections (where it should join Joanne Weir's excellent You Say Tomato). [A Good Cook Book Club selection.] Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
