Getaway: Food & Drink to Transport You

by Renee Erickson (Author), Jeffry Mitchell (Illustrator), Jim Henkens (Photographer), Diana Henry (Foreword)

James Beard Award–winning acclaimed chef, restaurateur, and artist Renee Erickson invites you on a culinary journey via her favorite places in the world—Rome, Paris, Normandy, Baja California, London, and her hometown, Seattle. Equally aspirational travelogue and practical guide to cooking at home, the book offers 120 recipes and 60 cocktail recipes for simple meals that evoke the dreamiest places and cuisines. From not-too-intricate cocktails and snacks to effortless entrées, these are the recipes that inspire Erickson and make for relaxed, convivial evenings, whether at home or abroad:

  • Roasted Zucchini Flowers with Ricotta, Mint, and Lemon Peel
  • Sardines, Shaved Lemon, and Walnut Salad
  • Cucumber-Basil Gimlet
  • Clam Ceviche with Serrano and Cilantro
  • Scallop and Tomatillo Aguachile

Showcasing Erickson’s appealing and high-style aesthetic and featuring gorgeous photography and hand-drawn illustrations, this book offers a richly visual survey of beautiful, easy ways to escape the everyday, with meals that you will want to eat every day.

“Erikson’s message in this extraordinary book is come away with me, sit with me, talk with me, slow down, and let’s savor the simple, beautiful foods we find along the way. Everything about this book, from the writing and the photographs, to the food and the warm invitation to search out what’s good and best and to share it, is singular and irresistible.” —Dorie Greenspan, author of Everyday Dorie
