Falling Cloudberries arrived at our desk and we fell in love with every aspect of the book, from the delicious recipes to the poetic sensibility of its author, Tessa Kiros. We traveled through memory and around the world with Kiros, for this is a special book, one filled with international cooking and international family memories. --In Mamas Kitchen
The very best cookbooks have the power to take you on a journey. Such is the case with this wide-ranging memoir featuring recipes from Finland, Greece, Cyprus, South Africa, and Italy.

Never say never.
First, a bit of background. Like most foodies and cooks, Tessa Kiros grew up scented by cooking smells and surrounded by people who're passionate about food. Her book is filled with recipes that represent her heritage: Greek, Finnish, Cypriot, South African, and Italian. As such, there are dishes here that challenge the American palate, especially those of pedestrian tastes, but what a delightful and tasty challenge it is.
I'll set aside the sheer beauty of this book for now and rate it on the essentials--the approachability and accuracy of its recipes, the reliance on fresh and obtainable ingredients, a balanced mix of easy, intermediate and advanced cooking methods, logical and sensible organization, practical tips to ensure success, satisfaction with the end product, and (always a consideration for me) a generous representation of everyday fare.Read more ›
"Falling Cloudberries" is not only a work of art, but also a really, really, REALLY good cookbook! Recipes are clearly written for the home cook and are very reproducible. The international flavors make the preparation entertaining and fresh. My family traveled from an Italian salad of baby spinach, bresaola, apples and nuts to Finnish Hasselback potatoes (named after the Restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm) accompanied by a grilled steak and ended with a South African pineapple, cinnamon and allspice cake. The potatoes were gorgeous and I realized as we lifted our glasses in a toast to Ms. Kiros that my family had experienced the taste and beauty of this cookbook without ever cracking the cover themselves. "Falling Cloudberries", because of this broad appeal, would make a wonderful gift to any cook. My family is begging for more and I can't wait to work up our next culinary "itinerary!"
