This first book by Julie Jansen, is independently published and contains recipes which span the years she has been wearing an apron. Growing up on a stone-fruit orchard, Julie began cooking at her mother’s apron strings at a young age. Now after years of writing and testing recipes and running her own cafes and catering business, Julie has selected over 70 of her favourite recipes. From creative breakfast dishes to innovative finger foods, from salads & soups to main courses, Julie believes ‘the very best published recipes are not only inspiring, but foolproof’.
Passionate about home baking, Julie’s repertoire of desserts, cookies and slices includes her much revered muffins, which are baked daily for her husbands string of Padre coffee cafes. This lovingly crafted cookbook of lively recipes is so thoroughly tested it will help others create beautiful food with confidence.
