Tessa Kiros


Tessa Kiros was born in London to a Finnish mother and Greek-Cypriot father. The family moved to South Africa when she was four and, at the age of 18, Tessa set off to travel and learn all she could about the world’s cultures and traditions, and new ways of living and eating. She has worked in restaurants in Sydney, Athens, and Mexico, and at London’s famous Groucho Club. She has written several cookbooks, including Apples for Jam: A Colorful Cookbook and the forthcoming Venezia: Food and Dreams. On a trip to Italy to study the language and food, she met her husband, Giovanni. They live in Tuscany with their two daughters.
