Cook for the family

 

Overview

The Cook for the family program developed by Chef Steve Sunk has a range of easy to prepare recipes and meal ideas. The program came about after Steve had delivered the Back to basics cookery program to remote communities in the Northern Territory and Western Australia as he recognised the need to simplify cookery in terms of utensils, ingredients, affordability and availability.

Recipes are easy to follow, quick, nutritious and affordable and have been designed to be cooked in one pot. Recipes use fresh, frozen, canned and dried ingredients that are available at community stores, or local bush foods and native herbs and greens. The recipes were developed with local community people and use inexpensive cuts of meat or can be replaced with bush meats available in the local area.

There are a range of recipe cards which can be printed from the Walkabout chef website. Each recipe has an instructional video of Steve cooking at home which show the basics of cutting vegetables and using electric fry pans and rice cookers.

The Cook for the family program encourages simple economics for the household, with each recipe designed to cost around $25 to feed a large family on a budget and to promote well-being with all the family eating a meal together.
