Julie Goodwin’s Cookbook Release Date Is 1 April
Masterchef Australia’s winner Julie Goowin’s cookbook Our Family Table will be released on 1 April 2010. It has been published by Random House and should make them a motza. The release date is nicely timed to ensure it can slipstream into the Masterchef Australia Season 2 publicity.
The Random House website states:
Julie says: ‘In this book I’m not just presenting recipes but exploring the role of food in families and communities. I want to get people back into their kitchens and promote the joy of food and family. OUR FAMILY TABLE is full of lovely stories and recipes and feasts, with a strong focus on good old-fashioned tucker. ‘
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 her 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.
With a foreword by Australian culinary icon, Margaret Fulton.
