For World Travelers + Eaters

“Ode to Travel” by Patrick Trefz is a thoroughly charming book that combines photographs, stories, and recipes. Introductions by Jim Denevan, David Kinch and Christian Beamish round out this book from acclaimed chef, surfer, and photographer Patrick Trefz in his third powerHouse title. Trefz samples the globe to find the best places with innovative local dishes, appealing visuals, supreme surfing nooks, and fellowship with fellow chef-surfer hybrids. This book includes three dozen regional recipes from Tunis to Teahupo’o, Stornoway to Salina Cruz, New York to Berlin, São Paolo, and Paris. A champion of the farm-to-table movement, Trefz also blosters the traditions of regional cuisine as a participant rather than an observer. Expertly connecting landscape and seascape, people and food, Ode to Travel celebrates a world view of a globe deeply layered, how cultures define communities from the ground (and the sea) up in their food and traditions, and the simple pleasures of living. Includes contributions from three-star Michelin chef and Manresa restaurateur David Kinch among other artists and craftspeople. This is a gift that will be savored! Available from powerHouse Books here.”
