Julie Goodwin Planning Her Second Cookbook

The TV Week states that Season 1 Masterchef Australia winner Julie Goodwin is already working on her second cookbook.

“The day they handed me the first copy of my new book, they asked me to start writing the second one,” she laughs. “I don’t have a solid plan for it yet, but it’ll come – no writers block here!”

The article states that despite already juggling a regular segment on Today, a magazine column and multiple produce endorsements, Julie’s still fielding offers for projects, hinting a greater TV role may be in the works. But her real goal is to open a restaurant.

Getting the restaurant off the ground is something I’m focused on,” she says. “It’s probably going to be in 2012 – I’ve got it mapped out.”

Also she will appear on Season 2 of the series. Personally I think she should do a slow cooker recipe book this would fit in nicely with her demographic.

The Good Living supplement in the Sydney Morning Herald reviewed her first cook book Our Family Table said:

All the recipes here look tasty but there is not much you haven’t tried before. To be fair, Goodwin says as much in her introduction. It is, she writes, “a wander through the world of the old and familiar.” Things get more interesting in later chapters. The slow-roasted pork belly with cider-braised cabbage, and the barbecued lamb leg with fennel and coriander seeds, caught my attention.

Seriously does it matter what the recipes are like it is going to sell its tits off, and suspect it will also sell well in the UK.

had a quick gledge at it in coles yesterday. seems full of the same exciting recipes that the penguin book review said about meggans tome HO FARKING HUM
Nothing there for the post modernist food snobs either. No recipes for 20 cent sized “slab of meat” on artfully ensauced 600millimetre diameter plate and charge $30 for it at the “le frogues legge” restaurant
