Julie Goodwin

Book for an event

Since becoming Australia’s first MasterChef, Central Coast mum-of-three Julie Goodwin has become a household name. Formerly an IT professional, she wrote a monthly column for the Australian Women's Weekly for ten years, is a bestselling cookbook author.

In 2015 Julie appeared on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ and in 2016 Julie she joined the Central Coast's Breakfast Weekday Show with Rabbit, 4 years’ worth of laughs and positivity.

In 2022 ‘Jules the OG’ burst back onto our screens in ‘MasterChef Fans and Favourites’ with that same quick-witted sense of humour and trademark honesty. She wowed the Judges (again) with her classic but perfectly executed dishes, securing herself a spot in the top 5, and Australia fell in love with her all over again. This time it wasn’t just her cooking that had Australia talking, but also her openness and willingness to share her struggles with mental health over the past decade. Using her privileged position of profile, Julie has vowed to keep the conversation going and is working with Beyond Blue.
Her first cookbook, Our Family Table, is one of the highest selling cookbooks in Australian history.
