Our Family Table

by Julie Goodwin

Australia’s first MasterChef Julie Goodwin is all about family, home and friends.

Beautifully produced, with more than 100 easy-to-follow recipes, Julie Goodwin’s bestselling cookbook, Our Family Table, offers the kind of cooking that brings families and friends together, time and time again.

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.

Our Family Table is more than a cookbook. It’s a recipe for the way we live today.
