Julie Jordan 

Julie Jordan is a native of the Finger Lakes, having been born in Ithaca and growing up near Trumansburg. Somehow, having studied cooking at the Cordon Bleu in London and nutrition and Wings of Life author Julie Jordan at work in Wegman's.food science at Cornell University failed to turn Julie into a traditional cook. Just the opposite. She espoused using natural foods and gained such a following that, when she cooked for and later bought the Cabbagetown Café in the Collegetown section of Ithaca, cutomers would line up around the block, waiting to get in.


The late 1970s and early 1980s was an amazing time to be eating in Ithaca with Mollie Katzen cooking at Moosewood and Julie cooking just a few blocks up the hill at the Cabbagetown Café. Both Mollie and Julie eventually left Ithaca, Mollie for Berkeley and Julie for Texas.


But Julie came back to her roots. She now works as a consultant to companies and resorts and designed the vegetarian hot bar and the Wings of Life salad bar for Wegman's, the largest supermarket chain in the region.


Julie Jordan is the author of three cookbooks: Wings of Life, Cabbagetown Café Cookbook, and A Taste of Julie Jordan. Look for Wings of Life and Cabbagetown Café Cookbook at used book stores and booksales throughout the region.
