A very beautiful cookbook to look through, but not really any recipes I would actually make!

This book is beautiful. I love how it's a cookbook, but reads like a book. Her recipes span her history and travel experiences. This is a must- have.

This is a cookbook for people who love to read cookbooks. I only made one of the recipes, but I read the book cover to cover. Tessa Kiros grew up in South Africa with a Finnish Jewish mother and a Greek-Cypriot father. When she writes of cinnamon and rose water - memories of her Cypriot grandfather - I can almost smell and taste the rice pudding she describes. Lush photos illustrate not only prepared dishes but also close-up images of ingredients in market stalls as well as textiles and stone pathways and black-and-white photos of Tessa's ancestors.
