5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite family cookbooks, 10 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apples for Jam:Recipes for Life (Paperback)
I couldn't remember if I've already reviewed this beforehand (when I purchased it ages ago), but Apples For Jam is up there in my personal cookbook hall of fame and is a book I return to again and again when cooking for my huband and toddler or simply to curl up and read.

I'm a huge fan of Tessa's writing and if you like this book, do also try Twelve (beautifull Italian recipes ordered by season), and Falling Cloudberries (ordered by country of origin) also by Tessa Kiros.

Apples For Jam is a charmingly writen and illustrated book (the hardback is particularly gorgeous if you like "food porn" on your bookshelf or coffee table!) with plenty of lifestyle shots, children's drawings and family photos of Tessa's childhood and own family which makes this a treat to both read and refer to for recipes. Michelin star food this is not, but it's honest, homey, wholesome handed-down recipes for food that I enjoy making and eating everyday and want to give my family and friends.

The Beef Stew with Carrots (so good,I have cravings for this one), Cranberry and Chocolate cookies, Sausage Goulash, Lemon Sandwiches with Raspberries and Cream (AMAZING for a tea party or special occasion), Chicken Escalopes with Tomatoes and Capers, and Vermicelli Soup with Tomato and Basil - to name just a few - are such regulars in our house that I know the recipes off by heart.

If you're unsure to go for this, buy it! You won't be disappointed, as even if you don't go for the recipes to cook from, just reading it is like a big warm hug from a friend!
