"Falling Cloudberries" by Tessa Kiros

I haven't been excited by a cookbook in a while, but this one is just so beautiful. It is both a cookbook, and a biography. A glimpse into Tessa's family tree and the food that bound her to all of the people she loved. She collects the recipes by heritage: "Greece." "Finland." "Cyprus." And by circumstance: "South Africa" & "Italy." They all include classics: Greek salad, Baklava, Potato Pancakes, Rusks. . . But also mouth-watering offerings I have never heard of. All simple, using basic, hardy ingredients. And the cherry on top: vibrantly gorgeous photography:
I will be looking for this one. I want to see it on my shelf.
