Now and Then
Beloved food writer Tessa Kiros's definitive reflection on a lifetime of cooking and eating, combining past meals and recipes with food that excites and nourishes her family today.
A collection of recipes for always.
This is beloved food writer Tessa Kiros's definitive reflection on a lifetime of cooking and eating. With characteristic generosity of spirit, Tessa invites us into her kitchen to share what she's cooking now: an exciting blend of new discoveries and enduring favourites that connect the threads of her life.
While the Tuscan countryside has been Tessa's home for more than 20 years, her culinary influences are wonderfully diverse: her childhood in South Africa, travels to Mexico and New Orleans as a young adult, frequent visits to family in Thailand and Greece, all overlaid with a growing appreciation for lighter, more grounded, plant-focused eating.
Part memoir, part travel guide, part food odyssey, this collection of more than 150 new recipes is accompanied by Tessa's personal reflections and favourite food memories. Longtime fans will rejoice in her best work yet, and aspiring cooks will discover how and why she has redefined the modern cookbook.
