Author(s): Monday Morning Cooking Club
The irrepressible, unstoppable women of the Monday Morning Cooking Club are back, with the very best, most delicious sweet recipes curated and perfected from Jewish homes across Australia and the world.
'We are always dreaming of soft, airy, pale chiffon cake, thinking about chocolate-swirled, glossy yeasted bake, imagining flaky chewy jammy strudel, baking almond-studded citrus-glazed Dutch buns, frying golden syrup-drenched coiled fishuelas, biting into hot sugared jam-filled doughnuts, eating crisp-shelled marshmallowy vanilla-flecked meringues, feasting on sticky steaming sweet butterscotch pudding and sharing it all with abundance and love...'
The Monday Morning Cooking Club have been on a mission: to uncover, curate, honour and celebrate the very best, treasured, and most delicious sweet recipes from the Jewish community in Australia and from around the world. Alongside these precious recipes, they tell heart-warming and poignant stories of survival, loss, love, family and community.
'Having this book at home is pure cosy joy' - Nigella Lawson
'The Monday Morning Cooking Club is a remarkable excursion into the realm of comfort food. You just want to eat everything.' - Yotam Ottolenghi

Merelyn Frank Chambers, Natanya Eskin, Lisa Goldberg, Jacqui Israel - these four women from Sydney's Jewish community came together as friends every Monday morning to cook their favourite recipes and talk about food. Three words became their mantra: they wanted to SHARE the stories and recipes of their community, INSPIRE people to preserve their recipes, and GIVE all the profits to charity. They published their first book, The Monday Morning Cooking Club, in April 2011, and have never looked back.
