About The Author
I’m Jules Clancy, a former food scientist turned cookbook author and meal planning expert. Taming my diabetes and PCOS with simple, low carb wholefoods.
I have 2 science degrees (food science and wine science). I had a brilliant time working all over the world making wine including France, California and Australia. I also learned one important lesson, making wine is hard, hard work. It’s much better to just pay someone else to make it so I can focus on the drinking part!
I now run a blog, Stonesoup, which is all about helping you eat healthier without extra time, effort or worry.
I’m all about fresh everyday wholefoods ingredients, one of my ‘super powers’ is being able to simplify recipes without sacrificing flavor or resorting to processed crap.
When I first decided to start blogging I’d just moved back to Sydney and had decided to give the world of winemaking a break. A job where your feet weren’t wet all the time and where there was no need to lift heavy things was all I was after really.
At the time I thought that I’d go back to the wine world at some stage. But in the mean time I decided to stick to showing my love for wine by just drinking it whenever I could and of course blogging about it every now and then.
Three years later and I’ve enjoyed many a tasty glass (Ok, bottle) of vino and have no plans to go back to the drudgery of winemaking. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that my blogging has remained very food-centric. But I do still love my wine and have recently had the pleasure of collaborating with a couple of Sydney wine entrepreneurs as their food correspondent.
