Description & Background
After June Clancy died suddenly in August 2007, her eldest daughter and food blogger Jules decided to pull together a collection of her Mum’s recipes. With the help of her sisters she tested and photographed all the classic family dishes that she had grown up with.

The results were just too good to keep to herself.  So Jules decided to self publish the book and share this one stop collection of simple, delicious family meals. Seeing this as an opportunity to celebrate a beautiful life and pass on the family recipes of an inspirational mum and cook.

About the Author

Jules Clancy is the girl behind the food blog stonesoup – a weekly digest of chatty stories, recipes and photographs from Jules’ kitchen. Jules has degrees in both food science and winemaking and is currently employed as a chocolate biscuit designer for Arnotts. She grew up on a sheep farm near Gunning, NSW but now lives in Sydney. When she’s not cooking, writing about food or taking photographs of food she can be found indulging her passion for running, travel, cheese, long boozy lunches and red shoes. This is her first book and she really hopes it won’t be her last.
