Author(s): Julie Goodwin
Since taking out the coveted title of Australia's first MasterChef, Julie Goodwin has been cooking, testing and writing away like mad, preparing to publish her first cookbook. Some recipes are heirlooms passed down in Julie's family through generations, while others were given to her by friends and neighbours. There are lazy weekend breakfasts to enjoy with the family, weekday and special occasion dinners, barbecue and camp cooking, and cakes, biscuits and puddings galore. Julie also includes recipes she created on MasterChef, such as her now-famous lemon diva cupcakes and passionfruit 'puddle' pie. The final section of the book is Julie's favourite: a beautifully designed 'blank' chapter with pages for the reader's own photos, clippings and hand-me-down handwritten recipes from family and friends.
Since becoming Australia's first MasterChef, Central Coast mum-of-three Julie Goodwin has become a household name. Formerly an IT professional running a successful family business, she now writes a monthly column for the AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S WEEKLY and has plans to open a restaurant.
