Views & Voices Book Discussion – Where does our food come from?

Join us for a lively discussion of Daniel Stone‘s delightful and informative book, The Food Explorer.

Share your thoughts on our question of the month, too: “where does your food come from?”

Please note – the author will not be present at this event.

From avocados to kale, mangoes to cherry blossom trees, some of the plants and foods dearest to our hearts were introduced to America by one intrepid 19th-century botanist and explorer: Daniel Fairchild.

In Daniel Stone’s delightfully captivating biography, we travel along with Fairchild as he makes his way around the globe, battling disease and difficulties with the law, to bring back many plant species which would change the course of America’s culinary history.
