Apples you Never Knew About, An Introduction by Rowan Jacobsen and Clare Barboza at Town Hall, Seattle, Sept 5

In Seattle with a curious mind and without any plans for first Friday evening of September, join Rowan Jacobsen and Clare Barbosa with Langdon Cook at Town Hall and learn about Apples you Never Knew About...

"There are thousands of apple varieties in North America, but only a few are offered in grocery stores. In Apples of Uncommon Character, James Beard Award-winner Rowan Jacobsen takes readers beyond the Red Delicious and Granny Smiths of the world, offering a look at 123 varieties of this most “uncommon” fruit. Part-cookbook, part-scientific study, Jacobsen’s book explores these apples — from the D’Arcy Spice to the Hidden Rose — giving historical anecdotes, descriptive characteristics, and popular recipe ideas. He’ll be joined by Clare Barboza — the documentary food photographer behind the book’s stunning imagery — and journalist Langdon Cook, author of The Mushroom Hunters. Jacobsen is also the author of A Geography of Oysters."
