For five years, we made and tasted hundreds of dishes from which we have handpicked our favourites for inclusion in our first book. We have over 100 culturally diverse recipes, from more than 60 cooks, each of which has been truly tested and refined.
Each recipe begins with a short story of the cook and their history of the dish. These simple stories, interweaved with the amazing recipes, narrate the rich and personal history of far-flung communities and families who find a deep connection through food, and the memory of generations that have gone before.

We are passionate cooks and nurturing women, with varied backgrounds in law, business, teaching, marketing, public relations and administration. We first met through Sydney’s Jewish community, where our shared excitement for this project brought us together and cemented a lasting bond.
