Aussie cooking legend Margaret Fulton has gone on the attack against reality shows such as My Kitchen Rules and MasterChef.
Fulton has accused the contestants on the popular shows of lacking the basic skills of cooking and directed some of her fire at the judges as well.
“I’ve seen enough people not cook well. I don’t want to watch people very pleased with what they’re doing but doing everything wrong,” Fulton said.
“What I found on MasterChef when I was on it, some of the basic things the contestants were trying to do – they didn’t know the basic things, such as pastry making.”
She attacked Matt Preston for turning into a showman.
“Matt found the inner showman in himself. Now he’s found the full showman,” she said.
“Matt used to be quite a serious food journalist. He is married into a Melbourne family that’s quite conservative, and they couldn’t believe what Matt was up to.
“He’s a nice person, but he’s developing this thing like Bernard King.”
