World-renowned chef creates real Aussie food with an Italian twist
Antonio Carluccio, one of the world’s most well known and respected chefs, is taken on a journey of discovery into Nyoongar country, the south-west corner of Western Australia. In one of the largest bio-diverse areas in the world, Carluccio learns about Australia’s indigenous history, spanning the culture, art and music of the land and, most importantly, the cuisine. He creates real Aussie food with an Italian twist, based on the six seasons of the Aboriginal calendar and the availability of native and foraged foods at different times of the year. Along the way, TV presenter Richard Walley introduces Carluccio to local characters who accompany them on their quest as they hunt, fish and gather wild plants and experience the simple pleasures of Aboriginal life.
