From 2008 to 2014, Julia was honored to serve on the Board of Directors of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP), the world’s largest multidisciplinary professional association for those working in food-related businesses. Julia had the challenge of serving a diverse array of membership interests, ranging from food writing and publishing to food styling and photography, to food preparation and service. After serving as Treasurer (2011-2012) and being a leading force in transitioning the organization to solvency and self-management, Julia was elected by her Board peers to serve as Vice President (2012-2013) and ultimately as President (2013-2014).


After nearly six months in development, my new Kitchen Club Collection has arrived! Here’s an overview of some of the cookies you can make with my first kit in the collection, which released just in time for Halloween. Complete with stencils, cutters, and even an instructional video, each kit will provide all you need to make wonderfully rich and layered 2-D, and often 3-D, stenciled cookie designs. 

Stay tuned for more holiday releases in October and November! I hope you love my new club and kits as much as I loved designing them for you! – Julia
