Just Add Love

Extraordinary stories from women who survived the Nazi genocide. They are Jewish women with a universal message, that you can rebuild after losing everything. Today in their 80s and 90s, and the heart of their families, they remain tough, hard-working, argumentative, funny and busy. And inspiriring in every way.

 Just Add Love is a cookbook, a photography book and a history book. A unique and delicious blend. The life time’s work of these resilient women was building a new life – and a new family.  That’s why we are gathering their recipes, alongside their stories. Because - Food is Life. Food is family. Food is Love.

Nothing tastes as good as the food your grandmother makes!  We’re preserving the recipes of vanished Jewish communities from Europe, Russia, Central Asia and North Africa. It’s the Jewish food experience, with Mediterranean summer delicacies and Russian winter specialities. And everything’s delicious, since it’s prepared with love, of course.
