When a child cooks with their grandmother they learn much more than a recipe - they absorb culture and family history, and start to discover their place in the world.This book contains the testimonies of Holocaust survivors, their extraordinary stories - and also their recipes - captured while they cook traditional meals with their grandchildren.

Just Add Love is a work of history and photography, a cookbook and a testament to the last generation of survivors in Australia, as they transmit history, culture, sustenance and love through the powerful ritual of food. This unique and moving combination of stories and recipes will touch your heart and inspire you to cook for the people you love, and to gather around the table together. Like grandma encouraged you to.
