Delicious… it’s the Monday Morning Cooking Club!

MMCC-AATF-front-coverWe hope you’re hungry, because the Monday Morning Cooking Club is at it again with their third stunning book containing heirloom recipes and new classics!

The Monday Morning Cooking Club went on a global search for this one, finding family and friends in communities all around the world. From Cardiff to Nova Scotia to New York, they went searching everywhere for the most nourishing and back to basics food they could find. This warm and inspiring new cookbook takes its inspiration particularly from the Jewish community of Sydney, Australia. Nigella Lawson, Yotam Ottolenghi, and Bill Granger are among the big names of those who just cannot get enough of the Monday Morning Cooking Club, but It’s Always About The Food truly takes the cake (pun intended) this time around.

With over 115 recipes, It’s Always About the Food has something for everyone. And as it should. This cookbook is predominately about the fun, simple nature of food; that food is a moment of community and coming together. There seems to be a constant presence in this newest cookbook, and that is the family table. The family table is incredibly important to the ladies of the Monday Morning Cooking Club, as it is here that we come together with those we love most and create memories. And honestly, looking back on it, so many of our memories are about what we ate, where we ate it, and with whom. Food is about creating and revitalising memories, bringing them back to share with big, hearty, home cooking.

What’s even more touching about It’s Always About The Food is – well, it’s not always just about the food. Sixty five stories about food and family are scattered throughout the book, attached to recipes that evoke a certain memory or meaning. While the delicious recipes speak for themselves, in a book that is about the effect of food on family and joy, it’s a beautiful touch to have this added to the book. Each of these stories have contributed at least one recipe, and it makes the recipes even more fulfilling than they already were.

The book has several sections, all of them focused on bringing you a well-rounded and hearty meal. We go through Dips and Bread, Soups and Salad, Mains, Potato Pasta Veg, and Sweets. Fela Levy’s Safta Fela’s Borekas (eggplant and feta stuffed filo pastry), Lauren Carmichael’s Yemenite Bean Soup, and Amy Kritzer’s Israeli Farro Salad all stand out on the lighter side of things. For mains, we couldn’t go past Lisa Goldberg’s Barbecued Salmon and Quinoa Herb Salad, Andrea Kreiner’s Persian Lamb and Eggplant, or Laurelle Ritz’s Spinach and Ricotta Gnudi. And honestly, don’t even get us started on the sweets… We could eat them all. Especially Garry Enston’s deliciously easy Flourless Chocolate Cake!

If you’re not hungry just reading those dishes, go out and grab a copy of the Monday Morning Cooking Club’s new cookbook, It’s Always About The Food. We can guarantee you it’ll bring many feelings of warmth and happiness, memories of family, and honestly, just some really great food.

                  Synopsis

                  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 AuthorIn 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.
