Monday Morning Cooking Club: The Food, The Stories, The Sisterhood

In this week's cookbook review, we decided to go back in time to bring you the Monday Morning Cooking Club Cookbook Review.

For those who don't know this is the first cookbook of the world-renowned Monday Morning Cooking Club. This is not the first time that we review their cookbooks, the first we reviewed was their most recent one - Now for Something Sweet. Having started with their most recent book and now going back to review the previous ones, has been a funny experience since it becomes easier to understand all the evolution and growth that the Monday Morning Cooking Club has had.

The Beginning of Something Very Special

In 2006, a group of Jewish women came together to share recipes and talk about food. They cooked, ate, drank endless cups of tea, and - often heatedly - discussed the merits of different recipes. After just a few weekly meetings, the Monday Morning Cooking Club was born.

Five years and hundreds of dishes later, six members of the sisterhood handpicked their favorite recipes to go into their first book. The result is a generous, rich, and inspiring cookbook featuring the best, most treasured recipes from a culturally diverse community.

In their first cookbook, you can find over 100 culturally diverse recipes from more than 60 cooks that have been tried, tested, and refined just for this book.

An Incredible Start

As we told you at the beginning of this review, this is not the first time we review a cookbook from the Monday Morning Cooking Club. A few weeks ago we reviewed Now for Something Sweet and we were very impressed by its quality. With such a good first review, we had very high expectations for their first book.

Incredibly the Monday Morning Cooking Club Cookbook exceeded our expectations were. Despite being a book with almost 10 years it still has a lot to offer. The level of visual production is not as good as the last cookbook, but the essence of the Monday Morning Cooking Club is equally present in both books.

In this book, each recipe begins with a short story of the cook and their history of the dish, and these stories, interwoven with amazing recipes, take the reader on a heartwarming and delicious journey through a community who finds a deep connection through food and the memory of generations that have gone before.

At the End of the Monday Morning Cooking Club Cookbook Review

The Monday Morning Cooking Club is a generous, warm-hearted and inspiring cookbook, full of stories, and delicious recipes. In our opinion, this is not only a book for the fans of the club but for all people who like to cook and enjoy good food.

Summary

The Monday Morning Cooking Club is a great first cookbook from one of the famous cooking clubs in the world. This book is a must-have for all the fans of the club.
