Julie Le Clerc is an imaginative chef, cookbook author, food and travel writer and food stylist. Julie works internationally from her base in Auckland, New Zealand’s sparkling ‘city of sails’.

Julie has had an eventful culinary career that includes many years cooking in professional kitchens, running her own boutique catering business and owning and cooking for two highly successful cafés. In these kitchens Julie was able to develop and express her own individual style of food before turning her talents to food writing. ‘My cooking is partly inspired, partly invented, but essentially based on good-quality ingredients cooked well.’

Today, Julie lives an enviable life filled with travelling, tasting, eating and writing about food. From all these sources of inspiration, she develops her elegant yet readily achievable recipes that incorporate seriously good flavours. Julie’s cookbooks introduce her style of colourful, uncomplicated food, vibrant with flavour and originality.
