Terroir: Going Back to the Land

Hosted by


Rowan Jacobsen is the author American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of our Woods, Waters and Fields.  Terroir is the concept of how the land where a crop is grown influences the taste characteristics.  Rowan believes the ecology of an area can affect the qualities of certain foods.  Terroir is a concept traditionally applied to wine, however it's also now used frequently to describe food.
