Margaret Fulton has been voted as the most influential celebrity chef on Australian cooking habits, according to a new survey by the Good Food & Wine Show.
According to the results, Ms Fulton was by far the most influential on Australian home cooking habits – some 43 years after her Margaret Fulton Cookbook was first published. Curtis Stone took second place while the MasterChef series garnered the majority of votes for being most influential on Australian cooking habits.
However, when asked which chef they would most like to be, Aussies went abroad. Out of a host of famed celebrity chefs, respondents voted for Jamie Oliver, with more than one in five selecting the English Naked Chef, closely followed by Nigella Lawson.
When it came to our favourite dish, the Australian BBQ is Australia’s most iconic dish with the meat pie and sauce taking second place, followed by the family roast.
