One Egg is a Fortune is a compilation of over 100 kosher recipes from 50 Jewish celebrities from around the world filled with sumptuous food photography, delicious recipes, interesting biographies and special memories.

Blazing Wings

Blazing Wings

One Egg Is A Fortune was compiled by Pnina Jacobson and Judy Kempler, two women who were looking to give back to their community in Sydney, Australia.  They share a love of food and storytelling and have spent the last ten years compiling this one of a kind cookbook.  When they were working on this book, Kempler was dealing with care of her late mother-in-law and so the two authors decided that a portion of the proceeds would go to support care for the aging Jewish community in the cities where the book is sold.

In this cookbook, each person tells a unique story revealing the enjoyment of food, friends and family – a common thread that binds us together.  They have mingled these stories with recipes and full color pictures that are a pleasure to read.    Contributors include musicians, composers, authors, actors, inventors, etc.  Each contributor shares stories, memories and sometimes even old family photos to go along with the recipes they share.  Recipes cover the entire world of Jewish cuisine, Asian, Moroccan, French, and of course classic Jewish recipes.

    had been hoping to win it for my son and daughter in law. They have quite a few people for Shabbat dinners each week and then again on Shabbat afternoons for ‘drop ins’. Over the couple of years they have been married, they really have become quite good chefs and really enjoy trying new things while conserving traditions. Their home is glatt so that any and everyone can come and enjoy. This cookbook, One Egg is a Fortune, looked like the nicest addition to their endeavors.
