Description
Acclaimed chef, surfer, and photographer Patrick Trefz in his third powerHouse title scours the globe to hone in on spots offering tasty visuals of innovative local dishes, supreme surfing nooks, and camaraderie with fellow chef surfers. Includes three dozen regional recipes.

From Tunis to Teahupo'o, Stornoway to Salina Cruz, New York to Berlin, São Paolo, and Paris--award-winning photographer and filmmaker Patrick Trefz mixes the metropolitan and the deeply rural by bringing food and culture from across the globe into his latest book of recipes and photographs, Ode to Travel. Famed throughout the surf world for his decades of magazine-cover-worthy images, Trefz has also become known in food circles for his work documenting the farm-to-table movement and championing traditions of regional cuisine. Ode to Travel captures Trefz' innate ability as a traveler to become part of the scenes he finds himself in--not merely as an observer, but as a participant. 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 the form of its food and traditions, and the simple pleasures that bring color to living. Ode to Travel includes 35 recipes from the places Trefz has come to know intimately; each recipe included is an invitation to experience the local communities through their flavors and traditions. Includes contributions by monumental land artist Jim Denevan, three-star Michelin chef and Manresa restaurateur David Kinch, and Voyage of the Cormorant author and Surfboards California owner and craftsman Christian Beamish.

"A lot of people take pictures in this surf world, but few do so with the deft or depth of Trefz; his work captivates the visual senses, but also has a way of telling a much deeper story than what is visibly there. Stuff that stirs more emotion and provokes more thought and is real--far from the fallacious, mass-produced, posed shit that's often churned out in the surf world. He keeps true to what inspires him intellectually and visually, and applies his vision and the many documentary mechanisms he's mastered, to create simulations of the way he sees the world."
