For the home cooks who don't have time to travel, Green Kitchen Travels and Olives, Lemons & Za'atar will take you on a round trip. Louisa Shafia, author of last year's Piglet winner, reflects on who captured the journey best here. Give it a read and let us know what you think in the comments section -- one lucky commenter will have a chance to win a copy of the prevailing book.

Cook the books: Embrace the comfort foods of far-flung locales with these featured recipes from today's Piglet contenders: an herbaceous Seafood Soup (Shorabit Akl Bahri) from Olives, Lemons & Za'atar and a Spanish-inspired Creamy Polenta with Mushrooms & Artichoke from Green Kitchen Travels.
