VENETIAN JOURNAL - food, travel, dreams

Tessa Kiros

Murdoch Books $49.99

A companion to the bestselling Venezia by Tessa Kiros, A Venetian Journal encourages food lovers who travel and those who explore the world via recipes to map their own journey, recording favourite recipes and memorable cooking and eating experiences.

Structured around the classic Italian meal: Antipasti, Primi, Secondi, Contorni, Dolci, A Venetian Journal features the photographer Manos Chatzikonstantis’ personal selection of photographs from his frequent visits to Venice with Tessa and fragments from her ownjournals as she sought to imbibe the very essence of the world’s most romantic city.

This book is a stunner! It will make a magnificent Christmas gift for anyone who loves Venice or has come under it's spell. The production values achieved by the publisher are most impressive and the whole package is a joy to behold. Check it out, it is a long time since I have held a book quite as beautiful as this one.

If the contents are as beautiful as the cover this must be a great book. And nothing cliche about the cover image.
