Margaret Fulton OAM (born 1924 in Nairn, Scotland) is one of many leading and best-loved cookery experts. The ‘matriarch’ cooking,and cooking 'guru', writer, journalist, author, and commentator was one of the first of this genre of writers.. She has been credited with changing the way we eat. Her original The Margaret Fulton Cookbook, first published in 1968 (with a Revised Edition released in April 2010), sold over 1.5 million copies and taught generations of families how to cook and entertain. Margaret has been nominated by the National Trust as a Living National Treasure.
Her early recipes encouraged housewives to vary the "meat and three vegetables" and to be creative with food. She 'discovered' food from exotic places such as Spain, Italy, India and China and as Cookery Editor, 'brought these into homes through her many magazine articles.
Fulton realised that chefs who did television shows tended to lose their audience. Accordingly, she remained a writer who regularly appeared as a 'guest' on various TV shows.
