Description
As savory as any vegetable, as sweet as its fellow fruits, the versatile tomato is a foundation of Spanish and Italian cuisines, and in America it is both our most popular garden delicacy and a commodity in the fast food industry. The author of Vaccine here takes us on a pulpy journey through the history and the modern world of the tomato, combining reportage, research, and anecdote in a lively narrative seen through the lens of today's global market.

"Arthur Allen's tomato odyssey takes him to every link in its production chain, from genetics to Chinese packing companies. Anyone who cares about how tomatoes taste will be fascinated by this journey, will never view pizza sauce the same way again, and will treasure those backyard summer wonders even more."—Marion Nestle
