My Mothers Spice Cupboard is the story of Jacob, his indomitable wife Hannah, and their nine children, set against the backdrop of the once-thriving Baghdadi Jewish community of Bombay.Elana Benjamin, one of Jacob and Hannahs many grandchildren, has vividly brought to life a community which no longer exists. Tracing the changes through two families and four generations, Benjamin lovingly describes what it was like to leave the culture, language and cuisine of India and start a new life in Australia.Underlying the story is the importance of food and cooking to the Baghdadi Jews, which goes beyond the mere provision of sustenance to express boundless warmth, love and hospitality.
