‘One Egg Is A Fortune’ is a cookbook full of heart! It is a book for today from times past.

 

Fifty well-known Jewish figures from around the world have contributed recipes, biographies and anecdotes, showcasing the diversity of Jewish life. And while each person tells a unique story, their anecdotes reveal that the enjoyment of food is the common thread that binds us together. The title of our book was inspired by one of these beautiful stories.

 

This timeless book presents over 100 delicious recipes with clear, easy-to-follow instructions with stunning food photography by Craig Cranko, sophisticated food styling by Michele Cranston from Marie Claire, The New York Times and other publications, and elegant book design by award winner Melanie Feddersen from i2i Design pty ltd.

 

The genesis of this book began over ten years ago. Pnina and Judy met when their children were young. Standing at the bus stop seeing their children off to school, they would often talk about doing something worthwhile for the community and yet still be stay-at-home mothers, caring for their families.

 

As they got talking, their shared interest in food emerged, not just the meals but the memories associated with them. And so the concept of the book developed into a mingling of recipes with the warmth of nostalgia and sociological record.

 

At this time, Judy was a carer for her late mother-in-law Viola, and realised that so much more was needed to help our ageing community. They decided then that part of the proceeds from this book would support Jewish aged care.

 

Pnina Jacobson immigrated from South Africa to Sydney, Australia in 1987 with her husband Ivor. She continued her teaching career and furthered her University studies whilst raising her family.

 

Judy Kempler is from Sydney, Australia. With her husband John, she also spent a few years in Melbourne and Singapore while her children were young and was able to continue her work in IT.
