Weekend Cooking: Margaret Fulton & Mini Pavlova’s

 

Last month, Australia lost one of its best-known food writers, Margaret Fulton, at age 94.

Margaret Fulton was a beloved national figure, awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 1983 for her services to journalism and cookery. Credited with expanding the palette of Australian families, she was p, among other things, the the Food editor for Woman’s Day magazine for twenty years.

It would be rare to find an Australian kitchen that doesn’t include a cookbook by Margaret Fulton, she published 25 over a period of four decades. Her first book, a 1968 best seller, The Margaret Fulton Cookbook was revised and updated in 2017 as a 50th Anniversary edition. Other popular titles regularly reprinted include Margaret Fulton’s Baking Classics, and Margaret Fulton’s Encyclopedia of Food & Cookery.

Her memoir, I Sang for my Supper: Memories of a Food Writer was published in 2001.

Since pavlova is considered a traditional Australian dessert, I though this video of Margaret Fulton making some delicious mini pav’s would be fitting to include here. Enjoy!

    I have many of her books in my collection (some wonderful 1970s and 1980s editions, originally in my nana’s collection).

    Margaret Fulton’s books are available in the US but she’s much less well-known here than in Australia.

    Being from the U.S. , I’m not familiar with her or her cookbooks, but I loved the video and will have to look into them. Thanks for sharing

    She seemed like a wonderful lady. It’s always hard to lose such an iconic person. ❤

    So sad! I don’t think I’ve ever heard of her before. I’ll be checking out her books.
