Irris Makler’s Just Add Love showcases recipes of the vanished Jewish communities from Europe to the Middle East, and tells extraordinary survival stories. She joins Arnold Zable and contributors to the book to speak about the kitchen as the heart of a home.
Irris Makler is an Australian foreign correspondent and author. Her most recent book is Just Add Love: Holocaust Survivors Share their Stories and Recipes. It's a history book, a cookbook and a photography book - in fact a delicious blend of all three - and looks at the powerful role of food in passing on history, culture, love and even trauma.

His books include Jewels and Ashes, Café Scheherazade, Scraps of Heaven, Sea of Many Returns, The Fig Tree, Violin Lessons, and The Fighter.
