From the first heady taste of tomatoes on home-baked bread in her mother's village in Petalidi to sitting at a taverna some 30 years later in Ithaka with her young family, Spira Tsintziras goes on a culinary, creative and spiritual journey that propels her back and forth between Europe and Australia. These evocative, funny and poignant stories explore how food and culture, language and music, and people and their stories help to create a sense of meaning and identity.
