Summary, etc.:
"Bread, Wine, and Chocolate, part journey to six continents in pursuit of delicious and endangered tastes, part investigation of the loss of biodiversity from soil to plate, tells the story of what we are losing, how we are losing it, and the inspiring people and places that are bringing back the foods we love. Award-winning journalist Simran Sethi travels from wild coffee forests in Ethiopian to cocoa plantations in Ecuador, from the brewery to the bakery to the temple, in order to meet scientists, farmers, chefs, wine makers, beer brewers, coffee roasters, chocolate connoisseurs, bakers, and many more to explore the reasons behind four developing monodiets in order to savor and save the foods we love."--Jacket.
