Ten things You Didn’t Know About Julie Goodwin
I was born in Sydney
I have written 5 cookbooks . Our Family Table, The Heart of the Home, Gather, 20/20 Meals and Home-made Takeaway.
When I was young I played clarinet in Hornsby Concert Band.
My favourite ingredients to cook with are garlic, lemons, eggs.
My biggest cooking disaster was when I opened the door to my dinner guests and the dog got up on the table and ran away with a whole roast chicken in his mouth.
When I am not cooking I am hanging out with my boys and my dogs.
My charity work involves doing various things for Oxfam, ChildFund, McGrath Foundation, Cure for MND Foundation, Coast Shelter.
My favourite book is Beach Music by Pat Conroy
My Masterchef highlights are when I won the cupcake challenge with my Lemon Diva, and cooking at the Hong Kong Jockey Club.
The most treasured items in my kitchen are my teacups and saucers. Some belonged to my nan, some to Mick’s grandma and mother, and others I have collected from various places over the years.

What a coup, Carol! Thanks for bringing us this. (And I love collecting tea cups and saucers, too!)
Your welcome Louise. I love looking at teacups and saucers in antique shops/markets and have often considered starting a collection…
oooh, how wonderful to interview Julie Goodwin 🙂
How lucky you are, Carol! And what a great list of things! I’ve had the greatest mental picture of that dinner when the dog decided to take the chicken. Makes me feel better about some of my own disasters….
As dog lovers I think we can all visualise that scenario 😊
