Soleil Ho and Tejal Rao belong to a new wave of food critics who are helping to redefine the craft. Writer and activist Yasmin Khan talks about her travels to modern Palestine, which have yielded a book full of humanizing stories and recipes. Plus: the return of the world's largest tomato seedling sal.
