the food, the stories, the sisterhood (2011, Softcover reprint)


Monday Morning Cooking Club: The Food, the Stories, the Sisterhood (2011 Hardie Grant; 2013 Harper Collins (second edition, softcover)): In 2006 a group of Sydney Jewish women came together to share recipes and talk about food. They cooked, ate, drank endless cups of tea and—often heatedly—discussed the merits of different recipes.

After just a few weekly meetings, the Monday Morning Cooking Club was born and a legacy of food and recipes spanning many cultures and generations began to take shape. Five years and hundreds of dishes later, six members of the sisterhood have handpicked their favorite recipes for publication in their first book of the same name. More than 100 culturally diverse recipes from more than 60 cooks have been tried, tested, and refined for inclusion in the Monday Morning Cooking Club book.

Each recipe begins with a short story of the cook and their history of the dish. These stories, interweaved with amazing recipes, narrate the rich and personal history of far-flung communities and families who find a deep connection through food and the memory of generations that have gone before.

This is the second edition softcover version of the original hardcover book, with minor corrections plus an added International Conversion Page.

    This is truly one of the most wonderful cookbooks I have ever seen! Not only is it a stunning visual journey, but it is the first book I own that NEVER leaves my kitchen bench Well done you clever ladies – you are all an inspiration.

    This is the most fantastic book. The careot cake and the celebration cake are my new ‘go to’ recipes! The carrot cake is Devine!
