Australian cooking scene trailblazer Margaret Fulton helped shape a generation of housewives, and now Bunbury audiences will be able to walk their tastebuds down memory line for one night of entertainment.

The acclaimed cookbook author helped encourage housewives to experiment with more interesting ingredients and is often credited with bringing international cuisine to a generation of Australians.

Dubbed the matriarch of Australian cooking, Fulton was awarded a Medal of The Order of Australia in 1983 for her services to cookery and journalism and has left a profound impact on the country’s cooking scene to this day.

“Australian food back then was bland, boring and British, or overly fussy, fancy and French,” Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre experience manager Suzanne Clark said.

“Margaret Fulton changed the game entirely.”

BREC will come alive with energy on May 20 when Margaret Fulton The Musical takes to the stage.

The playful musical is based on Fulton’s best-selling autobiography, I Sang for my Supper, and will leave audiences eager to flick back through their old cookbooks.
