She was brought up in a Greek family in cosmopolitan Sydney, Australia, and has been cooking since childhood. Travel and years of experience meant that by the time she wrote The Complete Middle Eastern Cookbook she had become aware of how centuries of history intertwine in the cuisines of the region, with each country's cooking influencing and being enriched by the others. In this completely revised edition, Tess has again found new threads between the cuisines of this rich culinary part of the globe.
