Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields
by Rowan Jacobsen
From Rowan's website, http://www.rowanjacobsen.com:
Why does honey from the tupelo-lined banks of the Apalachicola River have a kick of cinnamon unlike any other? Why is king salmon from Alaska’s Yukon River the richest in the world? Why do coffee beans from a single estate in Panama sell at auction for ten times the price of any other beans in the world?
A great read of the fascinating evolution of "the taste of place."
Read about George and the fascinating story of La Esmeralda in the chapter entitled, "The Fresh Young Thing."
