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.
On first glance you’ll immediately be impressed with the cover. The photo is lovely obviously but the raised, white design has me completely infatuated. This is a perfect touch to make the cover special & unique. I’ve been sick on & off the past few weeks & holding it in my hands still makes me smile. Inside the photos are absolutely stunning- & so detailed! The photography style is really dreamy. So what about the recipes? Each one has a story which makes more nice reading but the recipes themselves are definitely unique. Some I’ve had to alter a bit to my liking but for me the most important thing is the inspiration level- & this one has it!
