In 2009 Julie Goodwin became a household name overnight when she was crowned Australia’s first ever MasterChef winner. Thrust into the limelight, Australia’s favourite Mum became the Julie Goodwin brand; TV shows, best-selling books, radio, appearances, columns and endorsements were all to follow.

Viewers loved her honesty, sense of humour and humble cooking style. When her first cookbook, Our Family Table was published, she became one of Australia's best-selling authors; her book held the number one slot in the book charts for over 10 weeks.  

Shortly after winning ‘MasterChef’ Julie became the resident weekly cook on Nine’s breakfast show ‘Today’ and began her almost ten-year tenure as a monthly columnist for the Australian Women’s Weekly.  She has published seven cookbooks, Our Family Table, Heart of the Home, Gather, $20 in 20 minutes, Homemade Takeaway and The Essential Cookbook and CLASSIC.

In 2015 Julie made the gutsy move to head into the South African Jungle on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ and in 2016 Julie she joined the Central Coast’s Star 104.5FM Breakfast Weekday Show with Rabbit, for 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.
