“I’m Steve Sunk from Charles Darwin University where I’m a Master Chef and Senior Lecturer in Cookery. I live just outside the city of Darwin in the Top End of Australia.
For the past 15 years I have taken cookery courses to remote areas of the Northern Territory and Western Australia. My frequent travel between communities has earned me the nickname “Walkabout Chef”.
Officially, I teach Aboriginal people about cookery and nutrition; unofficially, they teach me about bush tucker, their culture and show me some of the most amazing places in the world. I always listen to the older people because their knowledge, particularly about Australian bush food, is encyclopaedic.
In return, I teach the younger ones about western cooking techniques so they can get a job, and more importantly, cook for their families”
