The Monday Morning Cooking Club: the Feast Goes On
picks up from where the first volume left off, in some ways. While the first Cooking Club
had the six ladies of the club asking time after time “who is the best
chef you know?”, this second cookbook had them reaching out all over the
country to find recipes that were not only delicious, but told stories
of people and their cultures.
The ladies of the club were, understandably, inundated with recipes –
for every one they included, five they had to (very sadly) exclude. But
this means that the very cream of the crop has made it in to their
second cookbook, The Monday Morning Cooking Club: the Feast Goes On
Filled with dozens of recipes, you’ll find that many of the recipes in
this cookbook have handed down, to act as reminders of loved ones long
There are a range of cuisines and recipes within this book, and many are
accompanied by stories that give a snapshot of the Jewish community
across Australia. Each member of the Monday Morning Cooking Club tackles
a chapter – such as Everyday, Lunchtime, Comfort, Tradition and more –
and includes the recipes generously donated to the club, including
everything from mains to desserts and all things delicious in between.
For previous fans of the Cooking Club, this second addition to the family perfectly complements the first. For first-timers, The Monday Morning Cooking Club: the Feast Goes On
is a wonderful place to start.
