"Apples for Jam" is a keepsake cookbook filled with savory recipes woven together by a rainbow of colors, memories, and lavish full-color photography.
Tessa Kiros has circled the globe working in restaurants in Australia, Greece, Mexico, and London. Her extensive travel and multicultural background lend authenticity to more than 200 recipes, which are grouped by color and presented alongside vibrant photographs, sound cooking advice, and heartwarming anecdotes about friends, family, and the whimsies of childhood.
Kiros shares a bevy of diverse and easy-to-prepare dishes playfully themed in colored chapters. An index references both specific foods and recipes. With memories of daisy chains, ice cream cones, circuses, and four-leaf clovers, Kiros shares her belief that good food sparks cherished memories that intensify life's melting pot of flavor. A sampling of the flavors includes:
* Sage and rosemary mashed potatoes
* Pecan butter cookies
* Roast rack of pork with fennel and honey
* Pomegranate sorbet
* Roasted zucchini and tomatoes with thyme
* Pan-fried sole with lemon butter.
