About the Author
Tessa Kiros was born in London to a Finnish mother and a Greek-Cypriot father. The family moved to South Africa when she was four, 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, and now lives in Tuscany.

As for the recipes - there is a lovely range. Some fairly simplistic admittedly, but plenty to inspire any cook. Tessa has a way of writing the recipes that I really enjoy - it almost feels as if she's looking over your shoulder talking you through it.
Chicken escalopes with tomato and capers
Rosehip semolina puddings
Orange juice and olive oil cake with pine nuts
Fried custard squares
Penne with prawns, cream and tomato
Green bean souffle loaf
Apple bread with sugar and cinnamon topping
A lovely book to cook with, or curl up with.
I have many many cook books, but I can see myself using this one a lot, mainly because the recipes are appealing, easy for family suppers and I know my little one will eat the food! In the few days I have owned this book I have made 6 recipes, all wonderful - with about 90 other recipes marked to try!
If you like Tessa's writing or if you are looking for a good family cookbook I would say buy this book!
Well, Apples for Jam is a perfect example of a perfect book. Glossy pages, arty photographs that make you so hungry you want to chew your own tongue, children's funny drawings that bring out the very best in you and make you smile...
And on top of that, recipies that you actually are going to want to try! In just 2 days I have already cooked 3. And to do that, I didn't need to stock up my cupboard with weird ingredients like I had to with most of the "fancy chefs'" cookery books. The recipies are down-to-earth, simple but divine. Sometimes it's just 2-3 main ingredients, but the combination of flavours is fantastic. Some of the recipies are fun, some are healthy, some are more fiddly - but all of them are thoroughly explained. The magical bit is, with this book, whatever you try cooking out of it, works out the way it should - there is no plus or minus a spoon of flour, everything is pretty exact.
Therefore, you are guaranteed a delicious meal, a good mood and a happy smile.
The recipes are fabulous. I have tried only 3. as yet (all totally successful) but I intend to have a go at many others. If you love family life, cooking and are a true homemaker, this one is definately for you.
