Julie Goodwin Releases Her Second Cookbook
After the success of her first cookbook, Masterchef Australia season one winner, Julie Goodwin, has released her second cookbook this week, called The Heart Of The Home.
It sounds very similar to the title Claire Winton-Burn had in mind when she was talking about her cookbook in Season Two. I thought hers was going to be called The Hearth Is The Home?
Julie’s recipes are still hearty with influences from her Chinese sister-in-law, and her travels to India. The release is nicely timed for Christmas.
Julie Goodwin is streets ahead of anyone else from the Masterchef series in terms of cookbook sales,diverse media commitments and endorsements, and it does not appear to be waning.
There was an interesting article in today’s Sunday Telegraph where Julie and the two other Masterchef winners, Adam Liaw and Kate Bracks talk about life after Masterchef.
Julie states she is comfortable with the way she looks, and has turned down an endorsement from Jenny Craig as that is not who she is. I admire her for this and for being candid about it. I doubt she would be as popular if she became svelte.
Apparently Adam Liaw is STILL looking for a site for his restaurant, however he is also working on his second cookbook. Kate Brack’s cookbook will be all about desserts.
