Item Details

From the world-class garden of acclaimed food writer Amy Goldman, a gorgeously illustrated guide to the world's most beautiful and delicious tomatoes. Every year, renowned grower Amy Goldman produces an amazing 500 varieties of tomatoes on her farm in New York's Hudson Valley. Here, in 250 gorgeous photos and Goldman's erudite, charming prose, is the cream of the crop, from glorious heirloom beefsteaks - that delicious tomato you had as a kid but can't seem to find anymore - to exotica like the currant tomato, a pea-sized fruit with a surprisingly big flavor. Along with the photos are profiles of the tomatoes, filled with fascinating facts on their history and provenance; a section of more than 50 delicious recipes; and a master gardener's guide to growing your own.

A really good summary of traits of the heirlooms included and the taste recommendations seem borne out by real experience with those types. Wish there was broader coverage of more varieties.
