Author(s): Julie Goodwin
How to cook delicious recipes for large and small crowds of family and friends, from the bestselling original Australian MasterChef, Julie Goodwin. Julie Goodwin's first cookbook, Our Family Table, was loved by many for its combination of simple and delicious recipes, and affectionate family stories. Her second book, The Heart of the Home, followed on from this, with more quick and easy family recipes and stories to bring together those she loves. Now, in her third cookbook, Gather, Julie turns her attention to cooking for gatherings of friends and family. With more than 100 delicious recipes and stunning photography, Julie gives us fast and fresh recipes for the perfect picnic, a warm and cosy dinner party, a bustling street party, a cake stall, pot luck, a family dinner around the pizza oven, a cocktail party and the perfect High Tea. Woven throughout the book are stories and photographs of Julie's family to accompany the array of flavoursome recipes for all kinds of gatherings, as well as blank pages to record your successes. Julie Goodwin's message is all about the importance of coming together to celebrate family, community and friendship. Gather is the perfect cookbook accompaniment to that.
Since becoming Australia's first MasterChef, Central Coast mum-of-three Julie Goodwin has become a household name. Formerly an IT professional running a successful family business, she now writes a monthly column for the AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S WEEKLY and has plans to open a restaurant.
