Come to the Eustis Estate for a special author talk with Daniel Stone on his new book, The Food Explorer. The book recounts the fascinating story of David Fairchild, a late-19th-century explorer traveling the world as a special agent of the American government. He visited more than fifty countries, all by boat, in search of foods that would enrich the American farmer and enchant the American eater. He got arrested, caught diseases, and bargained with island tribes.
