rated breakfast show ‘Today’ and contributed the first of her regular recipe columns for Australian Women’s Weekly.
In 2012, Julie dusted off her MasterChef apron for charity and appeared in ‘MasterChef All Stars’. She finished in the top four, winning an incredible $20,000 in
the process. After giving $5,000 to a fellow contestant for their charity, Julie donated $15,000 to Oxfam. Her third cookbook, Gather, was released in late March
2013. It celebrates food that brings people together around the family table. Julie’s next book will be released late 2014.
A native Sydneysider, Julie’s first career was as a youth worker. She spent many years presenting workshops in schools across Australia before working at a
juvenile detention centre on Sydney's Central Coast. After having three boys in quick succession, Julie and her husband Michael started their own IT Company,
which they built into a success through hard work and determination. Cooking for friends and family was always a passion for Julie, and an enjoyable way to
bring everyone together around the table.
In 2008, Julie’s love of cooking led her to apply for the first series of ‘MasterChef’, and before long viewers were falling in love with her cooking and straight-
shooting sense of humour. Julie’s own television series, ‘Home Cooked’, aired on Channel Nine in 2010, and a second book with Random House titled Heart of
the Home was published the following year.
Julie has developed wonderful relationships with all of her partners and continues her regular column with Australian Women’s Weekly. Always one to get
behind a good cause, Julie currently supports several charities and is a proud ambassador for the McGrath Foundation, Oxfam and ChildFund. She lives on the
NSW Central Coast with her husband and three sons.
