In her latest book, much-loved author Tessa Kiros celebrates the heritage of Italy, the country she has chosen to call home. This beautifully feminine book is a tribute to the women in our lives -- mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers -- and the important lessons we learn from them. After such celebrated titles as Apples for Jam and Falling Cloudberries, this is Tessa Kiros's best book yet, written from the heart and celebrating the best of Italy.
With more than 100 accessible and delicious recipes, ranging from robust family dishes to quirky cakes and old-fashioned preserves, this book is a precious heirloom to treasure. The chapters are based on rooms and items in the home, such as the bread oven; vegetable patch; snack box; pasta pot; meat, fish, and chicken in the dining room; and the ice box. Recipes include: Basil Liqueur, Sweet Pizza, Artichoke and Herb Soup, Potato and Truffle Purses, Roast Rabbit with Grapes, Chickpeas with Prawns, Marmalade Cake, and Cappuccino Ice Cream.

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.
