Julie Goodwin’s Cottage Pie Recipe
MasterChef Julie Goodwin has developed a wonderful range of delicious family recipes using Fountain Variety Sauces. Rather than using Fountain as a marinade or dipping sauce, Julie demonstrates how the sauce can be used as a hero flavour. These recipes are great for time poor mums and are also easy to make, making them perfect recipes to get kids involved in their making.
