Every year, when asked which author we would like to have tour - Tessa Kiros has been at the top of our list.
Tessa is the best-selling author of some of our most beautiful cookbooks such as Falling Cloudberries, Apples for Jam, Twelve, Venezia, Piri Piri Starfish and Food from Many Greek Kitchens.
Visiting Australia for the first time since she became an author, to appear at the Sydney International Food Festival and to celebrate the launch of her new book Limoncello and Linen Water, Tessa will be our guest for dinner!
In Limoncello and Linen Water, this much-loved author celebrates the heritage of Italy, the country she has chosen to call home. This whimsically feminine book is a tribute to the women in our lives – mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers – and the important lessons we learn from them. With accessible, delicious recipes ranging from robust family dishes to quirky cakes and old-fashioned preserves, this book is a precious heirloom to treasure.
If you don’t know Tessa - no-one else captures the spirit and soul of a place or family quite like Tessa Kiros. Born in London to a Finnish mother and a Greek-Cypriot father, she moved to South Africa when she was four, and at the age of 18 set off to travel, learn all she could about the world’s cultures and traditions and discover 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 Italian language and food she met her husband Giovanni, and they now live in Tuscany with their two children.
