In 2006, a group of Jewish women began meeting every Monday morning. 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.

Five years and hundreds of dishes later, six members of the sisterhood handpicked their favourite recipes to go into their book - the result is a generous, rich and inspiring cookbook featuring the best, most treasured recipes from a culturally diverse community.

Each recipe begins with a short story of the cook and their history of the dish, and these stories, interwoven with amazing recipes, take the reader on a heartwarming and delicious journey through a community who finds a deep connection through food and the memory of generations that have gone before.

About the Author

Merelyn Frank Chambers, Natanya Eskin, Lauren Fink, Lisa Goldberg, Paula Horwitz, Jacqui Israel - these six 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 The Monday Morning Cooking Club in April 2011, and have never looked back.

          Comments about Monday Morning Cooking Club:

          This is a heart-warming cookbook filled with stories and delicious recipes from a group of Jewish women. The book includes many traditional recipes that are sometimes hard to get your hands on (Kindlech, Challah bread and Bienenstich, for example), along with personal messages about the traditions attached to each dish.
