The return of the classic food encyclopedia from the woman who taught generations how to cook. Margaret Fulton's Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery is the definitive collection of her recipes and life's work. In one authoritative volume she focuses on foods we use in everyday cooking, including details to consider when buying ingredients, basic and unusual ways to prepare foods, as well as recipes and dishes that have worked their way into our culture and history. Margaret Fulton's greatest enjoyment in life comes from sharing her knowledge and recipes, and bringing good food into every home. Her encyclopedia is the essential cooking companion and the first book you'll reach for to find inspiration and advice in the kitchen. Margaret Fulton is one of Australia's leading and best-loved cookery experts. The matriarch of Australian cooking, she has been credited with changing the way Australians eat. Margaret's pre-eminence in the food world was officially heralded when she was honoured with the O.A.M. (Medal of the Order of Australia), and was recognised as one of the National Trust's 100 Living Australian National Treasures. She has published many bestselling cookbooks during her career of more than fifty years.
