Former Gourmet journalist Barry Estabrook gives an in-depth look at putting our money where our mouths are in Tomatoland (Andrews McMeel, $15.99). Certain to fascinate foodies and the environmentally conscious alike, Estabrook’s book investigates how, exactly, tomatoes are available, so bright and sweet, all year round. Even if you know the (disturbing) answer, the ethics of American consumer- and food-culture are weighed soundly and with panache. Estabrook follows the tomato from our plate and back to the soil, then from our plate to our bodies as we learn what our choice of constant and expedient access has done to a tasty fruit—and to ourselves.
