Jordan publishes Edible Memory

Associate Professor Jennifer A. Jordan publishes a new book, “Edible Memory: The Lure of Heirloom Tomatoes and Other Forgotten Food.”

In Edible Memory, Jordan examines the ways that people around the world have sought to identify and preserve old-fashioned varieties of produce. In doing so, Jordan shows that these fruits and vegetables offer a powerful emotional and physical connection to a shared genetic, cultural, and culinary past.
