Reviews

A vividly entertaining history of the humble bean takes the reader on a curious, surprising and exciting journey across epochs, continents and cultures.
Raymond Blanc
Charming.
New York Times
I would strongly urge a reading of Beans by Ken Albala which entertainingly unravels that most complicated of legumes through space and time.
The Guardian
