Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros


Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros

Inspired by the excitement and simplicity of childhood, Tessa has brought together recipes based around colourful and pure fresh ingredients that create uncomplicated and delicious family meals. From the comfort of soups and roasts, to the striking colours of beetroot gnocchi and mango sorbet, to the simplicity of rice pudding with nutmeg, this book weaves recipes with reflections and hopes. Alternative ingredients and options for serving suggestions are given for many of the recipes, extending their appeal. The evocative text and innovative recipes are complemented by beautiful photographs and hand-drawn pictures. Key points: more than 100,000 copies sold worldwide; like Tessa's other bestsellers, Venezia and Falling Cloudberries , this also mixes a traditional recipe style with a rich and personal narrative on Tessa's own passion for food; featuring mouth watering food photography and traditional recipes; and, reads beautifully and captures Tessa's warm and genuine voice in the recipes and accompanying text.


'Charming, nostalgic and exceptionally pretty, this is also - more importantly - a useful and practical family cookbook.'
Daily Mail

'Fantastic collection of recipes, inspired by the simplicity of childhood... There's food for everyone and every occasion and the design is simply stunning.'
Woman and Home
