Video Description: The Harvard Food Law Society hosted a talk by Barry Estabrook on September 22, 2011. A two-times James-Beard-Award-winning journalist, Estabrook discussed his recently published book, Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit. In it, he argues that the Florida winter tomato is the poster child for many of the problems of large-scale farming. As revealed in his writing, workers in the industry are routinely sprayed with pesticides, paid below minimum wages, and are often victims of slavery and indentured servitude. Estabrook was a contributing editor at Gourmet magazine. His work has also appeared in the New York Times "Dining" section and the New York Times Magazine, Men's Health, Saveur, Gastronomica, TheAtlantic.com and many other national magazines. He has been anthologized in The Best American Food Writing 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2010. His James-Beard-Award Winning website is www.politicsoftheplate.com.
