Hi, I'm Julie Jansen, a Melbourne based Home Economist, recipe writer and food stylist. After many years of working 'behind the scenes' writing recipes for television, magazines and industry, I felt it time to finally pen my own cookbook.
This website showcases my newly released cookbook Apricots and Apron Strings, which brings together my favourite recipes from the thirty years I've been wearing an apron.
I think my food demonstrates my passion for home baking and love of fresh simple flavours. I believe my recipes are inspiring, lively and so thoroughly tested, they will help you create beautiful food with confidence.
Within these pages I hope to share my favourite recipes, tips and food news and would love to hear from those who have cooked my recipes too, so please get in touch.
I welcome any comments, questions or feedback.
I hope you enjoy the site, my recipes and what I love to do.
