Julia Busuttil Nishimura

I’m Julia, a cook, author and teacher. My work celebrates simple ingredients, seasonal produce and the joys of coming together at the table. My cooking is influenced by my Maltese upbringing and time spent living in Tuscany, where I first learned the joys of the Italian kitchen. I write for publications such as Country Style Magazine and feature on The Design Files, ABC Radio and Australian Gourmet Traveller.

My debut cookbook, Ostro, was released in 2017 and short-listed for the 2018 ABIA ‘Illustrated Book of the Year’ and Gourmet Traveller’s ‘Best Food Books for 2017.’ I’m working on a second book which is due for release in 2020.
