Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Giovanna's spaghetti

    • LouiseStaley on January 01, 2014

      When pasta was asked for this was the choice that came up. Very traditional big, bold Italian flavours in a sauce that only takes 20 minutes. Excellent

  • Torta tartufata

    • mondraussie on January 01, 2016

      Very nice flavours but a bit dry. I only had a 24 cm tin (recipe called for 28 cm) so I cooked for longer than recommended 25 mins.. Would have been better to stick to 20 mins.

  • Chicken with peppers

    Kiros’ enthusiasm for each dish is infectious and the book lives up to its subtitle – a trousseau of treasures.

    Encouraging us to add that extra sugar lump to your dessert, more herbs to your chicken and roses to your serving plate, it's as beautiful as it is indulgently delicious.

    Kiros regards the recipes as practical and, while that’s probably not a claim that could be made about the omelette sprinkled with edible flowers, the recipes are crystal clear and the flavours punchy

    The book is designed more as a ‘read and later cook something’ book than a general recipe book. There is a good index at the back for those who just want to look up recipes...

In "Limoncello and Linen Water", much-loved author Tessa Kiros celebrates the heritage of Italy, the country she has chosen to call home. 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.
