Reviews

The writing is at once lively and musing and evokes well the areas visited. It pinpoints the various elements which together make a cuisine and culture: not just the produce of land and waters but weather, architecture, what people wear. -Gary Gillman, Beer et seq. a physically beautiful volume, designed to look a little old-fashioned - like something you might find in the attic in an old steamer trunk that once belonged to your globe-trotting bohemian uncle. The matte-finish pages are full of appetite-stirring shots that are only slightly over-propped; photo collages by the food and travel photographer Manos Chatzikonstantis evoke the spirit of each of Ms. Kiros's subject places. The recipes themselves are almost all the kinds of things that any reasonably cosmopolitan cook would be happy to tackle. They are clearly written and capable of yielding delicious results -Wall Street Journal 'Review' I really enjoyed Kiros' approach, and it was a pleasure to leaf through a wonderfully designed and presented book popping with style and color. - Portland Press Herald

She grew up in South Africa and left home at eighteen to travel and cook, working in restaurants in London, Sydney, Athens and Mexico. She now lives in Tuscany with her Italian husband, Giovanni, and two daughters. Her first cookbook Falling Cloudberries, a world of family recipes was an instant success. Continuing her travel and culinary adventures, Tessa has written a further eight books, exploring the food of Italy as a whole, Tuscany, Venice, Portugal and Greece. Evocative writing and beautiful photography epitomise her unique books.
