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.
