Book of Difficult Fruit
Equal parts memoir and cookbook, the Book of Difficult Fruit follows Kate Lebo's unquenchable curiosity and promises adventure that's intimate, sensuous, ranging, bitter, challenging, rotten and ripe.
- Includes 26 lyrical essays and recipes with difficult fruits—such as aronia, durian, medlar and quince—as the central ingredients
Made in USA.From the publisher:
What makes a fruit difficult? Its cultivation, its harvest, its preparation, the brevity of its moment for ripeness, its tendency toward rot or poison, the way it might overrun your garden. Here, these fruits will take you on unexpected turns and give sideways insights into relationships, self-care, land stewardship, medical and botanical history—and so much more. In a work of unique invention, every sentence is sensuous.
What if the primary way you show love is through baking, but your partner suffers from celiac disease? Why leave in the pits for Willa Cather's plum jam? How can we rely on bodies as fragile as the fruits that nourish them? After reading The Book of Difficult Fruit, you will never think of sweetness the same way again.
