Andrieu was born in Paris, the daughter of actress Nicole Courcel, married to a man much younger than her and who abandoned her during her pregnancy. She and her mother lived for a year with Jean-Pierre Coffe, who was a close friend. She has a half-brother and a half-sister from her father's side. She is also the cousin of writer Marc Levy and actress Cathy Andrieu.[1]

She started her career at age 18 as a photographer for France Soir. At age 20, she learnt to prepare small dishes to please her partner, the photographer Jean-Marie Périer.[2] She published in 1999 her first cookbook titled La Cuisine de Julie and became in 2000 a food critic for the Guide Lebey.[1]

Since 2001, she has hosted several radio and television programs on cooking:

  • Tout un plat, program on channel Téva, 2001
  • Votre table, program on radio RMC Info, 2002
  • Julie autour du monde, program on channel Cuisine+, 2003

Since September 2009, she has been a food columnist in the daily television program C à vous presented by Alessandra Sublet on France 5, preparing almost every evening a recipe during the show.[3] In 2012, she replaced Alessandra Sublet during her pregnancy by hosting the program every Friday.

She also collaborates on the weekly television magazine Télé 7 Jours for the rubric À table. She has published a number of books of recipes and cooking advice, created her own website and produced several television programs titled, such as Julie chez vous, where she visits individuals to make an inventory of their closets, advise and develop a recipe with the material they have.
