Cookbook Review: Our Family Table by Julie Goodwin

My rating 4 stars

Our Family Table = Julie Goodwin = Solid, Simple, Reliable, Strong. Buy this book to give as someone’s “first cookbook” or as a leaving home gift. This book is idiot-proof.



Julie Goodwin was the first winner of Australia’s Masterchef 2009.
