Thursday, March 25th, 2010 - stonesoup

Last year, food blogger Jules Clancy self published her first cookbook, ‘and the love is free’ to celebrate the beautiful life and cooking of her Mum who died from cancer in 2007.

One of the things that surprised her most about the success of the book was the number of people who commented, ‘What a fabulous idea - I should do that for my Mum / family /children.’

So Jules decided to pull together an instructional ebook to show people how easy it is to create their own professional looking, personalised family cookbook. The ebook is available for sale exclusively from Monday 29th MARCH through Jules’ blog and is $9.95 or FREE with any purchase of Jules’ first cookbook.

Who is Jules Clancy?

Jules is a Sydney based food scientist, writer, photographer and aspiring minimalist who ran an online competition last year to find a date for dinner at elBulli in Spain - the best restaurant in the world.

In January this year, she packed in her day job as a chocolate biscuit designer for Australia’s largest biscuit company to become a full time blogger. She writes stonesoup | minimalist home cooking (, a blog that helps people become better home cooks by using a minimalist approach to cooking. She focuses on super simple recipes with 5 ingredients or less that can be made in 10 minutes.

When she’s not cooking, writing about food or taking photographs [of food], she can be found indulging her passions for long boozy lunches, travel, running, sweaty bikram yoga, cookbooks, boating on Sydney harbour, cheese and red shoes. [OK. all shoes].
