1968 First Margaret Fulton cookbook

The first Margaret Fulton Cookbook

Cookery writer Margaret Fulton was the food editor of Woman’s Day magazine when her first cookbook was published by Paul Hamlyn in 1968. The initial print run of the Margaret Fulton Cookbook was just 30,000, but it was quickly reprinted and went on to sell more than a million copies.

The cookbook was reprinted in 1969 and further editions were published in 1976, 1980, 1991, 1998, 2004 and 2006. The classic 1968 edition was reissued in 2010 revised, updated and with new photography. Margaret Fulton published many other cookbooks, earning her a place in almost every Australian kitchen. In addition to the original Margaret Fulton Cookbook were the following titles, many of which are no longer available:

*Cooking for Dummies
