MasterChef's Julie Goodwin admits she's 'still so unsure' about her kitchen skills


MasterChef Australia star Julie Goodwin admits she’s ‘still unsure’ about her cooking skills despite winning the first season – before blowing judges away with her dish

Julie Goodwin has made no secret of her desire to prove herself to this year’s MasterChef Australia judges. 

But winner of the show’s original 2009 season, 51, admitted she’s ‘still unsure’ about her kitchen skills during Wednesday night’s episode. 

Julie’s nerves were on full display as the ‘Fave’ prepared her meal alongside ‘Fans’ Jenn Lee and Melanie Persson.

She had to beat both in order to get a shot in the upcoming immunity challenge. 

‘These guys are really good cooks. I don’t know if this cauliflower soup is enough,’ said Goodwin.

However the veteran needn’t have worried, with her soup described as ‘flawless’ by judge Melissa Leong.

‘One of the best cauliflower soups I’ve ever eaten,’ declared Jock Zonfrillo. 

Julie’s efforts earned her a shot at immunity from Sunday night’s elimination. 

The victory comes after Goodwin shocked MasterChef viewers on Monday night as she made her big return to the show after her arrest for drink driving and mental health struggles.

The cook was charged with drink driving twice over the legal limit four years ago, and later revealed she had been suffering from depression for which she sought treatment at a psychiatric facility.

Julie was wracked with nerves as she presented her Lebanese Shish Tawook dish to judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo, and fans said she looked ‘stressed’.

The mother of three, who won her season back in 2009, was shaking though most of the episode and even cut her finger.

Jock comforted a clearly nervous Julie by telling her, ‘I need you to just let it wash through your brain. You’re not an OG. You’re a winner.

‘But what you are, more importantly, is a classic. Okay? And classics never get old. Classics are very hard to beat.’ 

Melissa called the dish ‘everything it should have been’ and said ‘everything had a place’. 

Julie was clearly taken aback by the encouragement.

She was caught after trying to evade a police breath test.

After fronting up at court with her husband and acknowledging it was ‘an error in judgment’ and ‘accepting full responsibility’, Julie was fined $600 and disqualified from driving for six months.

She later revealed she had been suffering from depression and spent five weeks in a mental health facility.
