The New York Times
calls Tessa Kiros's work "exuberant and
colorful." And that is just what her gem, Falling
Cloudberries: A World of Family Recipes
, is. The book is
full of personal touches and stories. It is a beautiful collection
of family anecdotes, history, and traditions all documented with
stunning photography, unique illustrations, and a warm dialogue
that will simply pull you in.
Kiros's Apples for Jam, was called "a lovely
quilt snuggled softly against your cheek" by the Times
Herald-Record of Hudson Valley, New York.
You'll find Falling Cloudberries in the Cookbook section, but it
could also easily be found in the World Cultures or Travel sections
because the recipe collections give a unique taste of Finland,
Greece, Cyprus, South Africa, and Italy all in one.
This is possibly because of Kiros's life. She
takes us on a global journey of taste and experience with her
eclectic compilation of 170 simple and delicious recipes that
reflect her world travels, multicultural heritage, family
traditions, and amazing cooking combinations. Taste the world
without leaving your kitchen.
Destination: delicious. Kiros inspires home cooks
with a broad offering of dishes from Finland, Greece, Cyprus, South
Africa, and Italy.
Recipes are organized by country and are complemented with 185
four-color photographs and gorgeous illustrations. A handy index
makes it easy to find specific foods and recipes. The book even has
a lovely illustration of the author's family tree, which gives home
cooks an inside look at the author's diverse and world-spanning
family and their food traditions. The bold packaging and robust
photography are just as inviting as Tessa's tasty dishes.
