Wonderful book with great history recap of how the pineapple has become what it is today. Wonderful recipes too. Beautifully written and actually helped me out with a project I was working on at college. Great resource and easy to follow writing. Not the usual book you'd find at home on my shelf but certainly an interesting talking-piece. Thanks for a good read!

All About Pineapple was a pleasant surprise. I grew up enjoying pineapple but had never before stopped to consider what a rare, royal delicacy it was in the recent past. The examples and stories are numerous and well written in a timeline sort of style. I was especially interested to learn the details of the formation and rise of the Dole empire. My only complaint is that it could have been longer than 100 pages to cover a few thousand years of history. The book can probably be read by adults and young teens, or read to even younger ages. I didn't think I would even look at the recipes , but by the time I finished the book I went out to get some canned pineapple and made a dessert and an entree on the same night!
