Margaret Fulton Google Doodle is showing in Australia to celebrates her 97th Birthday .
Margaret Fulton was a Scottish-born Australian food and cooking writer, journalist. She was the first of this genre of writers in Australia.
Margaret Isobel Fulton OAM was born on 6 October 1924 in Nairn, Scotland.
Margaret Fulton emigrated to New South Wales at three years old. At 18, Fulton moved to Sydney in the hope of becoming a dress designer, but she instead pursued a career in cookery. In 1947, Fulton took a position as a cooking teacher for a utility company, where she found her passion for developing easy-to-follow recipes while teaching a class for visually impaired home cooks.
Fulton’s early recipes encouraged Australians to alter their traditional staple of “meat and three vegetables” and to be creative with food. She encouraged international cuisine from places such as Spain, Italy, India and China.
Fulton refined her recipes in the decades that followed while working as a pressure cooker salesperson, advertising executive, and food journalist. In 1968, she published the first of 25 cookbooks titled “The Margaret Fulton Cookbook” which has sold over 1.5 million copies.
Happy birthday, Margaret Fulton
She died on 24 July 2019 in Australia.
