DON'T HESITATE - JUST BUY THIS BOOK,
This review is from: Monday Morning Cooking Club (Paperback)
I am an avid reader and collector of cookery books and this one has instantly become one of my all-time favourites.
It is written, and features recipes by, six of the women from a Jewish cookery group in Sydney, Australia, who got together in 2006 to share recipes and talk (and often argue!). This quickly morphed into a group that discussed the merits of different recipes and you quickly wish that you had been one of them: can't you just imagine spending the who time talking about food? Oh, I'd love it.
The type of cookbook I like is one that tells a story and this does just that. Before each recipe is a foreword by the owner and each of the six women has a mini biography so you get to know them too. And I can't tell you how stunning the photographs are - surely the book must win some sort of award for the photography alone? (If not, why not?).
Recipes include sweet and savoury dishes and I sincerely hope and pray the 'ladies' will bring out a book just of baking (hint, hint).
All in all, if you want a book that will quickly become your favourite of all time, don't delay. Buy it NOW.
