Author(s): Heidi Swanson
New York Times bestselling author Heidi Swanson's approach to cooking-delicious, seasonal, healthy, balanced meals-has earned her a global readership. From her San Francisco kitchen, she has inspired Australia (and the rest of the world) to welcome less-processed foods into their daily meals. In her friendly, caring, encouraging style, Near and Far inspires and nurtures a healthy, thoughtful approach to food. Known for combining natural foods recipes with evocative, artful photography, Heidi 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. The 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. "Elegantly illustrated with photographs from these locations and Heidi's kitchen at home, Near Far provides a fascinating insight into the places that have inspired her warm, nourishing cooking." - Country Home Ideas "Swanson gives us six books for the price of one. She has travelled in Morocco, India, Japan, France and Italy, gathering vegetarian specialities, and to these she adds favourites from her home, San Francisco, a melting pot in its own right." - Country Style "New York Times bestselling author Heidi Swanson circled the globe to create a mouthwatering assortment of 120 vegetarian dishes in this her third book, Near Far." - Label Magazine "Heidi Swanson's latest cookbook is a collection of vegetarian recipes that do more than just provide the reader with a keen sense of longing - they also evoke an unshakable sense of wanderlust." - MiNDFOOD
