    DescriptionThe "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 possible 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.

    Author Information
    No one captures the spirit and soul of a place quite like Tessa Kiros. She was born in London, to a Finnish mother and a Greek-Cypriot father. The family moved to South Africa when she was 4, and at the age of 18 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. They now live in Tuscany, with their two children.
