In this week’s cookbook review, we are back with another pastry cookbook. This time we decided to review Now for Something Sweet Cookbook from the Monday Morning Cooking Club.
The irrepressible, unstoppable women of the Monday Morning Cooking Club are back, with the very best, sweetest, and most outstandingly delicious recipes curated and perfected from Jewish kitchens across Australia and the world. A joyful cookbook that honors and celebrates the most cherished family recipes alongside moving stories of warmth, family, friendship, community, and survival, this is a book to both treasure and cook from, day after day.
Now for Something Sweet is the fourth book of Monday Morning Cooking Club. Although we never reviewed the previous books, if there is something that we know about this talented club is that they know how to write good books. This last one is not an exception and in fact, it is considered by many fans, including our selves, the best book of all.
As we said at the beginning of this review, this book puts together the very best recipes of the Monday Morning Cooking Club. With more than 110 delicious recipes ranging from biscuits, cakes, bars, yeasted doughs, and more, there is plenty of choices for every taste. The diversity of recipes is one of the many reasons why we love this book. It is great to have in just one place the possibility to choose between a simple Almond Butter Biscuit and a complex Dobos Torte, a Hungarian Layered Sponge Cake.
Another great thing about this book is that every recipe comes with its own photograph. We already said this in many of our reviews, but we really think it is very useful to have photos of every recipe, especially in the lesser-known ones.
Besides all the recipes you find in this book you’ll also find some useful tips and some curiosities about some of the recipes.
At the beginning of the book, you’ll find a small section called Kitchen Notes, that we encourage you to read before you start exploring the recipes. This section will give you lots of helpful hints and tips to ensure you get the best results possible.
Now about the fun facts! At the beginning of every chapter, you have a section called People + Stories, where you’ll get to know the stories behind some of the recipes. We love these sections because, for us, the stories are what make recipes special. For us, this book can perfectly capture the loving coziness that comes from the sharing of family recipes. Is there anything better than sharing the recipes that mean the most to us? We don’t think so! Do you?
Now for Something Sweet Cookbook is a must-have for any fan of the Monday Morning Cooking Club. In our opinion, this book is not only for the fans of the club but for all the home chefs who enjoy baking some delicious goodies. If you are looking for a new pastry cookbook you should definitely take a look at this one.
Now For Something Sweet puts together the most exciting recipes of the Monday Morning Cooking Club in just one place. With so delicious recipes to choose from the only problem, you'll find is to decide where to start!
