A life-long apple lover, Amy Traverso is the food editor at Yankee magazine. She is also the author of The Apple Lover's Cookbook. She lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.
"Traverso provides a compelling history of the apple throughout civilization and a short overview on apple genetics before launching into a detailed primer of 56 different varieties. ...In sum total, this is a solid compendium that is as satisfying and reliable as its namesake fruit." -- Publishers Weekly "How many apple varieties can you name off the top of your head? Six? Ten? Traverso lays out a guide to 59 apples... If she were to stop there, fine. But she also weaves in stories of apple farmers who've garnered a following by what and how they're growing, and a meeting with a researcher at Cornell University's famed apple breeding program who might make you think differently about genetically engineered apples. She offers storage tips, crust-making tips, apple sizes and equivalent measurements, a source guide to apple products and cider tasting notes." -- Janet Rausa Fuller - Chicago Sun-Times
