Indigenous chefs succeeding in native bush food kitchen

Date posted: 13 December 2013

Through the combined efforts of the Outback Academy, Woolkabunning Kiaka and the South West Institute of Technology, there's a new generation of Indigenous chefs specialising in native bush foods.

Program ambassador, Mark Olive, has been guiding the development of the trainees at Roelands Village, and aims to visit Indigenous Elders and communities across Australia to see Aboriginal people developing the native bush foods industry. 'Many chefs and food growers today are excited about bush native foods and like the Elders who taught me, I want to see this knowledge being used, developed and shared by Aboriginal people with the broader community,' Mr Olive said.

The program provides mainstream accredited training alongside specialist bush native food instructions.
