One Egg Is A Fortune is a cookbook full of heart! It is a book for today from times past.
Pnina Jacobson and Judy Kempler have produced a beautiful cookbook/storybook and have provided Kadima with copies of the book for our auction--and beyond--to help us raise funds and to make people aware of this gorgeous book.
About the book: Fifty well-known Jewish figures from around the world have contributed recipes, biographies and anecdotes, show-casing the diversity of Jewish life. While each person tells a unique story, the anecdotes reveal that the enjoyment of food is the common thread that binds us together. The title of the 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 One Egg Is a Fortune 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 talked, 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 realized that so much more was needed to help our aging community. Judy and Pnina decided then that part of the proceeds from this book would support Jewish aged care.
