Food From Many Greek Kitchens is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

"In Greece, everyone has a vasilopita (cake) at New Year. The wonderful thing about this cake is that a flouri (coin) is added before baking. If you''re lucky enough to get the piece with the coin, you''ll be blessed for the year. Don''t you love that sense of celebration the Greeks have?"

No one captures the spirit and soul of a place quite like Tessa Kiros. Her bestselling cookbooks Twelve, Postcards from Portugal, and Venezia took her global audience of readers-keen cooks and armchair travellers alike-on magical journeys through Tuscany, Portugal, and Venice respectively. So who better than Greek-Cypriot Tessa to take you on a colourful journey into the Greek kitchens of her friends and family? Accompany her as she presents the traditional Hellenic foods for fasting, festivals, and feast days in her own enchanting way.

Read from the Book

Excerpt The smell of a Greek manavi (green grocers) . . . especially old-style ones or on the islands re-blossoms each time I walk into one. It is a warm, extremely friendly, and comforting smell . . . like flowers, leaves, melons, figs, meadows, orchards, the sea, and sweet life all rolled into one shop.

About the Author

Tessa Kiros was born in London to a Finnish mother and a Greek-Cypriot father.

She has cooked at London''s The Groucho Club and in Sydney, Athens, and Mexico. On a trip to Italy to study the language and food, she met her husband, Giovanni, and they now live in Tuscany with their two children.
