Monday Morning Cooking club is made up of six woman who have been cooking together every Monday morning since 2006. Their directive was to put together a cookbook to raise money for charity. It was then their mission to take it one step further, and to actually try to find the best recipes from the best cooks in Sydney's Jewish Community.

"We wanted to share with the world our community's unusually strong, somewhat obsessive, connection with food".
