"Every plant that man has cultivated has some sort of a history, some sort of a story. From apples to nutmeg, follow us as we learn a little about every fruit and vegetable on earth, and its relationship to man's cultural history.
Chefs, gardeners, history buffs and travelers alike will appreciate that the stories of the plants that we grow and turn into our cuisines have histories tied to our own.
We say that we domesticate plants, but so many of these examples show that plants also exploit us in an evolutionary ploy to make themselves more desirable to the strongest biological force on Earth. Follow us around the world and into our history to learn a new angle about the things we eat."
