It’s Always About the Food

The unstoppable Monday Morning Cooking Club sisterhood returns with a stunning third book containing heirloom recipes and new classics. It’s Always About The Food is the result of a global search for the most-loved dishes that have been delighting family and friends for years and have nurtured communities from Cardiff to Nova Scotia to New York, from Sydney to Johannesburg to Jerusalem.

Honouring and sharing stories of immigration and survival, joy and sorrow, family and connection, it is a deliciously rich, generous and story-filled book, reflecting the Jewish community’s love for food and cooking, and the importance of the family table. This book is all about the food, the flavours and the most sought-after family recipes, not from a restaurant or a test kitchen, but from the very heart of the home.

The Feast Goes On

A generous, warm-hearted book, The Feast Goes On features the best-loved and most delicious recipes and stories from the heart and soul of the Jewish community right across Australia.  Created by the same six women – the ‘sisterhood’ – of the bestselling Monday Morning Cooking Club cookbook, it speaks of a community drawn together by food, telling intimate and moving stories of sharing and survival, love and hope, friendship and family.

From precious family recipes that have been lovingly handed down the generations, right through to new classics that will become instant family favourites, The Feast Goes On contains over 100 recipes to suit every occasion. From everyday eating to feasting, light lunches to fressing, comfort food to traditional dishes, this is a cookbook of rich, wonderful ideas and flavours to nurture, nourish and inspire. The Feast Goes On will feed you, body and soul.

Monday Morning Cooking Club – The Food, The Stories, The Sisterhood

For five years, we made and tasted hundreds of dishes from which we handpicked our favourites for inclusion in our first book. The book has over 100 culturally diverse recipes, from more than 60 cooks, each of which has been truly tested and refined.

Each recipe begins with a short story of the cook and their history of the dish. These simple stories, interweaved with the 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.
