Kate Lebo is a pie baker, a poet, and an apprentice cheesemaker. She is also smitten by fruit that others find challenging.

From the familiar but fussy (cherries, pomegranate) to the uncommon (aronia berries “taste vegetal like a grass stem, then sour like a crabapple, with a tannic pucker that rivals raw quince and deep-purple juice that stains teeth like wine”) to the daunting (durian), Lebo finds something not only to love but to celebrate. If her definition of fruit is expansive, we really don’t care, given the insight and beautiful writing she brings to her essays on each one.

Will you ever make gooseberry cheese or thimbleberry kvass? Perhaps not. But you’ll certainly be thinking about it after reading this book.
