Michael Pollan refers to foods that you often find in a supermarket, like strawberries or tomatoes that offer only the notion of being the real thing because their flavor and texture are so tasteless.
For me, grapes at the supermarket fall somewhat into this camp. There are usually only 2-3 varieties to choose from, and they may taste ok, but they are rarely something you eat, and savor their flavors.
The grapes above that Anthony and Carol grow don’t have a name, but they more than make up for that fact in their flavor intensity. There is a concentrated fruity sweetness in these grapes, with a subtle aftertaste that’s delightfully sour. The best way I know how to describe the taste, it’s something you want to bite down on, and savor.
I’m also impressed with how beautiful the presentation, the picture above is one complete bunch that I purchased from them.
I’m going back for more!
