Food is not really about the ingredients; it’s about the joy of sharing a good meal, good conversation and personal history. Three members of The Monday Morning Cooking Club - Merelyn Chalmers, Natanya Eskin and Lisa Goldberg - talk to Caroline Baum about their third stunning cookbook, It’s Always About the Food, the result of a two-year search for delicious recipes and rich stories of the Jewish diaspora. These are the unstoppable Sydney Jewish women who know more than a thing or two about ‘fressing’ and food.
