Andrew will be heading bush in the coming weeks in search of new native Australian ingredients. Andrew has been invited to a remote Indigenous community located three hours from Alice Springs in collaboration with NG Media’s Desert Kitchen programme, to be aired on SBS.
“It is a huge honour to be invited into these communities” says Andrew, who is a tireless champion of the native food industry in Australia. He hopes that the time away will allow him to discover new flavours to add to his existing repertoire. Andrew is particularly interested in Goanna, “I am told the local ladies are experts at catching goannas”.
The trip is not only about discovering new flavours, but also about the sharing of cultures, something Andrew is passionate about, “I also want to introduce some of the SA native ingredients to people up there, and look at ways they can make their meals healthier”.
