Now for Something Sweet


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.



The sis­ter­hood is com­prised of Lisa Gold­berg, Mere­lyn Frank Chalmers, Natanya Eskin and Jacqui Israel from Sydney’s Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty. They think of them­selves as their own lit­tle melt­ing pot, which is reflect­ed in their heart-warm­ing and gor­geous books. They live in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia, but come from dif­fer­ent back­grounds. Mere­lyn comes from Perth, with Hun­gar­i­an her­itage. Jacqui start­ed her life on the Syd­ney north shore with an Eng­lish back­ground. Lisa is from Mel­bourne, of Pol­ish stock. Natanya is a Syd­ney girl with Shanghai/​Russian roots. More ideas, more cook­ing and more love!
