The Monday Morning Cooking Club started as six food-obsessed and unstoppable Jewish Sydney women who loved food, wanted to raise money for charity and wanted to create beautiful cookbooks. These books would collect the very best recipes from their community as well as honour and share stories of immigration, survival, joy, family and connection. Two bestselling books later, and now a group of five women, the Monday Morning Cooking Club returns with a stunning third book which is the result of a two year search for recipes from the global Jewish diaspora - those much-loved dishes that have nurtured a community and have been feeding family and friends for years.

It's Always About the Food is a delicious and rich, story-filled snapshot of cooking in the global Jewish diaspora, which gathers together the very best cooking and favourite recipes from the global Jewish community, reflecting the Jewish people's love for food and cooking, and the importance of the family table. This book is all about the food, flavours and the most delicious family recipes - not from a restaurant or a test kitchen, but from the heart of the home.

Ultimately, in this big, fast world, food is the connective thread that joins us together, and all over the world, the ritual of cooking grounds us, connects and nurtures us.

About the Author

In 2008, 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.

        Amazing cookbook by a gorgeous group of ladies. Scrupulously tested, recipes read beautifully and work perfectly every time.

        Stunningly photographed and peppered with fascinating social history. Couldn't reccomend highly enough.

            Love the recipes and the stories behind them. Bought the book as soon as it was available and have already made quite a few of the dishes in it. The recipes are easy to follow and are very tasty

              The MMCC girls have come up with another winner. Beautiful recipes that really work and stories of the cooks behind the recipes --- an inspiring combination. I have already cooked many of the recipes and have enjoyed everything. Yum yum!
