Julie spent about four months testing the recipes for the book and although she likes to cook, she has no culinary training. Her goal was to create a cookbook she “would buy herself” and that was not intimidating or complex.
Julie Sullivan is the owner of Honeydew Events as well as a cookbook author. Honeydew Events is a destination management and special events company that arranges spouse programs, VIP dinners, tours and off-site activities for conventions.
Julie wrote Settings: A Cookbook, which has a whimsical subtitle claiming that the book features “the chocolate-scented neighborhoods, buggy-ridden back roads, crisp waterways, sassy small cities, and fun food factories of Pennsylvania's southern land.”
The book is a compilation of recipes from people the author has met or heard about. Julie likes to say that she has “collected the recipes and it's a collection of other people's talents of the region.”
Julie was president of the Junior League of Harrisburg, Inc., and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Pennsylvania. She currently is on the boards of the Friends of the YWCA of Greater Harrisburg, The Four Diamonds Fund, and the Harrisburg Symphony Society, for which she is co-chair of the designer show house and gardens.
Julie and her husband Michael live in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with their identical twin sons, William and James. Her website is http://www.settingscookbook.com/
