“This is an ode to the matriarchal figures in my life,” writes Kiros in the introduction to this distinctive, lyrical collection of Italian recipes gathered from and inspired by nonnas, aunties, friends, friends’ mothers, and more. Pasta, bread, vegetable dishes, meat, fish, and desserts – all are based firmly in tradition, but are presented in Kiros’s contemporary, easy-going, and aspirational style.
Much-loved author Tessa Kiros celebrates the heritage of Italy, the country she has chosen to call home, in Limoncello and Linen Water. This whimsically feminine book is a tribute to the women in our lives - mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers - and the important lessons we learn from them. With accessible, delicious recipes ranging from robust family dishes to quirky cakes and old-fashioned preserves, this book is a precious heirloom to treasure.
