FOR THE FOOD SNOBS OUT THERE...

...a preview entry from The Food Snob’s Dictionary, to be published this fall by Broadway Books.

Newtown Pippin. Homely, tart, green-skinned HEIRLOOM apple variety native to the Long Island section of New York State. An ideal apple for baking and cider-making, the Newtown Pippin is also upheld by righteous SLOW FOOD people as one of the historical gems that was nearly rendered extinct by the evil, Frankenfruit-favoring hybridizers of agribusiness. If you care about good fruit–if you’re a feeling, compassionate human being–you’ll join us in our efforts to help reestablish the Newtown Pippin.

(The CAPPED words indicate a cross reference to another term in the dictionary. More such preview entries to come.)
