International departures; say cheese; have your cake and eat it
Saturday 09 October 2004
Cookery writers with exotic backgrounds start with an unfair advantage. Tessa Kiros is half Finnish, half Greek, grew up in South Africa and lives in Tuscany with her husband Giovanni. Her second book 'Falling Cloudberries' (Murdoch Books, £25) is a beautifully produced collection of recipes ranging from herrings marinated with dill and allspice to leg of lamb with oregano and lemon, and ricotta tart with a chocolate crust. If envy doesn't cloud your vision, it's lovely to look at and cook from.
We've a soft spot for Ravens Oak cheeses. Not just because they have sweet, furry animal faces on their wrappers. After only two years at the Cheshire dairy, 23-year-old cheesemaker Katie Hollinshead won a clutch of rosettes at the recent British Cheese Awards for her hand-made brie-style goat, cow, ewe and buffalo milk cheeses. Stockists include Harrod's and The Cheese Shop, Chester; 01772 781500 for others. From £1.50 per 100g for Burland Green to £1.97 for Kidderton Ash goat's.
