Julie is Australia’s first MasterChef

Julie MasterchefAustralia’s best amateur cook wants to open a little restaurant on the NSW Central Coast after winning MasterChef.

NSW mother of three Julie Goodwin won $100,000 and a cookbook deal along with the title of Australia’s first MasterChef.

The Central Coast resident now hopes to open her own restaurant, where she wants to serve “good, unpretentious food” and make her customers feel loved.

Goodwin, a 39-year-old who runs her own IT business, whipped up a sage and garlic chicken and despite appearing flustered did a fine job of replicating celebrity chef Matt Moran’s signature chocolate cake dish to take out the top prize on Network Ten’s Masterchef program on Sunday night.

She was one of 20 finalists whittled down from 7,500 applicants who auditioned for the first series of the program, which involves amateur cooks preparing dishes for chefs and food critics.

“I don’t know how I can describe it,” she said when asked how she was feeling.

“I feel happy.”
