Overview

This is food for families, for young people, for old people, for children, for the child in all . . . for life.- Apples for Jam

Apples for Jam is a keepsake cookbook filled with savory recipes woven together by a rainbow of colors, memories, and lavish full-color photography.

Tessa Kiros has circled the globe working in restaurants in Australia, Greece, Mexico, and London. Her extensive travel and multicultural background lend authenticity to more than 200 recipes, which are grouped by color and presented alongside vibrant photographs, sound cooking advice, and heartwarming anecdotes about friends, family, and the whimsies of childhood.

Kiros shares a bevy of diverse and easy-to-prepare dishes playfully themed in colored chapters. An index references both specific foods and recipes. With memories of daisy chains, ice cream cones, circuses, and four-leaf clovers, Kiros shares her belief that good food sparks cherished memories that intensify life's melting pot of flavor. A sampling of the flavors includes:

* Sage and rosemary mashed potatoes

* Pecan butter cookies

* Roast rack of pork with fennel and honey

* Pomegranate sorbet

* Roasted zucchini and tomatoes with thyme

* Pan-fried sole with lemon butter

Meet the Author

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.

    I bought this book from the U.K. and I have loved it

    I purchased the hardcover copy of Apples for Jam from an overseas bookseller last year. It has become one of my favorites. The book itself is beautiful with chapters divided by 'colors' of food. There are the most wonderful photographs and images throughout the book. It has a very European feel to it. The instructions are easy to follow. Some may find the recipes simple, but they are great for a family and rather child friendly. One recipe that I make often is Chicken Escalopes with tomatoes and capers. It is great every time. There are also a number of really fantastic recipes for potatoes as well as pasta. On a 'foodie' site I often read it seems that people have either not cared for this book at all or have really loved it. I would certainly recommend it.
