Near & Far: Recipes Inspired by Home and Travel

Near & Far: Recipes Inspired by Home and Travel Review

Known for combining natural foods recipes with evocative, artful photography, New York Times bestselling author Heidi Swanson circled the globe to create this mouthwatering assortment of 120 vegetarian dishes. In this deeply personal collection drawn from her well-worn recipe journals, Heidi describes the fragrance of flatbreads hot off a Marrakech griddle, soba noodles and feather-light tempura in Tokyo, and the taste of wild-picked greens from the Puglian coast. Recipes such as Fennel Stew, Carrot & Sake Salad, Watermelon Radish Soup, Brown Butter Tortelli, and Saffron Tagine use healthy, whole foods ingredients and approachable techniques, and photographs taken in Morocco, Japan, Italy, France, and India, as well as back home in Heidi’s kitchen, reveal the places both
near and far that inspire her warm, nourishing cooking.

    The photos are beautiful but I found it hard to compile many of the ingredients in my somewhat podunk town. Also, I didn't find myself inspired by very many recipes. Loved the two previous cookbooks b...

    If you make only one recipe in this cookbook, make the edamame mint spread. It’s simple, healthy, and a little bit special—like most of the recipes in this book. I know this because in the last 9 ...

    This is my favorite book of Heidi's so far. Her recipes and photos are artwork. She makes gorgeous food that also happens to be vegetarian. Not everything is to my taste. Practically speaking, I'll pr...

    I was provided with a copy of this book as an advance e-reader copy to provide an honest and fair review. Not that I needed to be given an ARC to review this book. I love Heidi Swanson's blog and reci...

    Swanson's narrative is one of privilege, it is true. A lot of the reviews at Goodreads have mentioned this, with varying degrees of annoyance. The book, however, does not pretend. The minute you touch...
