As Australia's first culinary queen, Margaret Fulton long reigned supreme in the country's kitchens as she taught our growing nation how to cook.
From quiches and scones to nasi goreng and crème brûlée, her recipes revolutionised Australia's palate from plain old 'meat and three veg' to the flavours of the world.
Charting Fulton's rise from home cook to a household name in the swinging sixties, this playful musical comedy is like chicken soup for the soul and celebrates Australia's coming-of-age through the lens of this wise trailblazing woman of the world.
