“A mystical, Munchausen-esque tall tale, with characters no less bizarre and entertaining.” The contest’s over, but there’s more here

Pulitzer winning food critic for the LA Weekly (and a major inspiration to myself and any food writer/lover), Jonathan Gold lists “The Fruit Hunters” among the year’s best food books. He finds himself “mournful at the lack of local opportunities to taste the Seychelles’ forbidden coco de mer, a giant nut shaped like the ass and loins of a beautiful woman.”

Fruit Hunting in National Geographic Traveler
Proof that Montreal is a Bohemian hotspot! Stomp on your hat!

Here’s a really interesting review by a fruit-world insider, who aptly notes that many rare fruiters “are so driven by their quests for fruit that they completely ignore their fellow man. It’s as if greed has taken over to such an extent that these people are literally oblivious to the existence and needs of other human beings around them besides themselves.”

Bonnie Stern recently wrote about The Fruit Hunters at her book and dinner club. “Many fruitilicious stories about crazy characters who smuggle fruit, invent fruit, solely exist on fruit and some who are so passionate about various fruit that they do things like follow ripe durians around the world so that they can always eat them in season.” If you are on the durian trail now, hit me on my two way.

I know it’s not hot dog trigonometry, but this is still quite mathematically beefy

Watch yers truly shivering amidst the exotic fruits at the Jean Talon market in winter! Eat local! Showtimes here

See you in Connecticut this weekend for the Mad Gardeners symposium, and Montreal, Italy and London molto bientot!
