"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.
