Mark Olive, Australia's most celebrated Indigenous chef and known as The Black Olive, visited Casino Public School in late October.
He spoke to the school about his life and career as well as the Indigenous food, herbs and spices he uses.
As a Bundjalung man, Mark's family originated from the Northern Rivers in NSW. Mark has been cooking for more than 30 years. His style and approach to food, with a passion for fusing native and Indigenous Australian ingredients with contemporary cooking techniques, have earned him a reputation and large following in Australia and around the world.
Mark plans to establish an academy to train young Indigenous people in food and cooking, hoping to inspire the next generation to healthier lifestyles.
