Near & Far: Recipes Inspired by Home and Travel - Heidi Swanson

Near and Far (Ten Speed Press, $29.99) is the long-awaited second cookbook from the James Beard Award-winning food blogger Heidi Swanson.  The book is framed around Swanson’s travels, beginning with a “Near” section of favorite recipes inspired by her home in San Francisco. It then moves on to cuisine drawn from Swanson’s explorations of India, Japan, France, Italy, and Morocco. This “Far” portion of the book is not a standard set of traditional ethnic dishes but rather Swanson’s own style of cooking filtered through the culture and savors she encounters in each place.  What results is a collection of unique recipes that vary widely in flavor but share an elegant simplicity and exquisite attention to detail.  Whether you are drawn to the clean flavors of a salad of spring carrots and beans or the more surprising nori granola, Swanson will win you over with her thoughtful approach in the kitchen and the evocative photographs of food and place.
