After ten years and two best-selling cookbooks, the unstoppable Monday Morning Cooking Club returns with a third book containing heirloom recipes and new classics collected from the global Jewish diaspora.
It’s Always About the Food is the result of an international 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.
With a focus on the most sought-after family recipes, not from a restaurant or a test kitchen, but from the very heart of the home, It’s Always About the Food reflects the power of food and the ritual of cooking as a connective thread that joins us together.
The Monday Morning Cooking Club is a group of five Jewish women, passionate home cooks, who have been meeting together in Sydney each Monday for over ten years to seek out and share recipes, preserve and honour the stories of their community, and cook their favourite foods.
They have built a huge online following and have won major fans in the food industry including Yotam Ottolenghi and Nigella Lawson. Their first two cookbooks, Monday Morning Cooking Club and The Feast Goes On have sold over 55,000 copies and have been published in the UK and US.
