Amy is pleased to announce that her highly acclaimed book, The Heirloom Tomato: From Garden to Table (published 2008), will be heading into it’s second printing in May. She previously authored Melons for the Passionate Grower and The Compleat Squash. Having grown hundreds of varieties over the past 35 years, Amy presents, in her latest book, the history and allure of the tomato with the expertise of a true insider. Here, you’ll find advice for novice and avid gardeners and recipes to whet every appetite. Once again, Amy teamed up with photographer Victor Schrager to capture the beauty of her homegrown vegetables with his sumptuous still lifes. To buy The Heirloom Tomato, visit your local independent bookstore or visit Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or Bloomsbury.
Praise: “The aesthetic and sensual pleasures of these luscious fruits, beautifully described in this volume, to my mind, makes the The Heirloom Tomato a future candidate for heirloom status itself.” Katy Keifer, Food Arts Magazine.
