Love Quinoa? Thank the International Man of Botany
Love mangoes and dates? Can’t imagine a grain bowl without quinoa? We have botanist David Fairchild to thank for bringing these foods and many more to the United States. Fairchild spent his entire career traveling the world learning from indigenous food cultures, searching for plants to bring home to the United States. Sara Burnett, VP, Wellness & Food Policy at Panera, visits the intrepid food explorer’s former home and the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami to learn more about his adventures.
