After three best-selling cookbooks, the irrepressible Monday Morning Cooking Club returns with a stunning fourth book, a collection of mostly sweet heirloom recipes that are as treasured as they are mouthwatering.
Now for Something Sweet is the result of an intensive search to uncover, curate and celebrate the very best, most cherished sweet recipes from the Jewish community in Australia and around the world. (Including one outstanding savoury chapter to provide delicious relief from all the sweetness.) Alongside the recipes, they recount heart-warming and poignant stories of family, friendship, community and survival.
Ranging from the straightforward to the more elaborate, these recipes are always impressive and often show stopping. From the simple passionfruit-iced coconut slab cake to a Russian yeasted kulich which is worth the day it takes to make, from quick-bake chocolate-sandwiched romany cream biscuits to the perfect vanilla slice (mille feuille) for the home cook, this book has it all. Step-by-step 'how to' guides for a few essential techniques provide a helping hand to those who need it, and the more complex recipes offer a challenge for those who crave it.
