Over 130 family-friendly recipes from some of Tessa Kiros's most-popular cookbooks.

Tessa Kiros: The Recipe Collection is a carefully curated selection of recipes from the author's culinary publishing career to date. With over 130 family- friendly meal ideas pulled from some of Tessa's most-popular books, The Recipe Collection focuses solely on the recipes she has lovingly collected and created on her many travels. Food from Tessa's own Finnish and Greek Cypriot heritage appear alongside dishes she has discovered in the osterias, tavernas, street stalls and neighborhood kitchens of the many countries she has called home: Italy, Portugal and South Africa.

Beautifully designed and organised in a classic, accessible format, the nine chapters cover all occasions: breakfasts, smaller bites, soups, salads, pasta, gnocchi & risotto, seafood, meat, vegetables and desserts. This is family food at its best; nourishing and delicious, and easy to recreate thanks to the simplicity of ingredients and Tessa's warm, down-to-earth writing style.

About the Author

Tessa Kiros was born in London to a Finnish mother and a Greek-Cypriot father. The family moved to South Africa when she was four, and at the age of eighteen Tessa set off to travel and learn all she could about the world's cultures and traditions, and new ways of living and eating. 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. Tessa is the best-selling author of eight cookbooks.
