How Carrots Won the Trojan War is a delightful collection of little-known stories about the origins, legends, and historical significance of 23 of the world’s most popular vegetables. Curious cooks, gardeners, and casual readers alike will be fascinated by these far-fetched tales of their favorite foods’ pasts. Readers will discover why Roman gladiators were massaged with onion juice before battle, how celery contributed to Casanova’s conquests, how peas almost poisoned General Washington, and why some seventeenth-century turnips were considered degenerate.

How Carrots Won the Trojan War is the perfect book for vegetable gardeners, foodies, and anyone else interested in the secret stories behind a salad.

Entertaining

I don't know anything about gardening but I stumbled across this and the title (not to mention the illustration)tickled my fancy. It is a funny read and I loved the unusual accounts. If you enjoy the types of books that give you unusual facts that you would never have thought to find out about on your own, then this is one for you!
