Episode 273: Being a Cookbook Writer: Writing 11 Cookbooks with Tessa Kiros

Welcome to the latest episode of the podcast. I’m excited to be here today with an interview with food writer Tessa Kiros. Born in London to a Greek-Cypriot father and Finnish mother, international best-selling author Tessa Kiros developed an interest in the food of different cuisines and travel from an early age. She grew up in South Africa and left home at 18 to travel and cook, working in restaurants in London, Sydney, Athens, and Mexico. Today on the podcast, we talk about Tessa’s 11th book, Now and Then Tessa’s reflection on a lifetime of cooking and eating. Part memoir, part travel guide, part food odyssey, this collection of more than 150 new recipes is accompanied by Tessa’s reflections and favorite food memories. Longtime fans will rejoice in her best work, and aspiring cooks will discover how and why she has redefined the modern cookbook.
