BUSH TUCKER: Clayton Donovan will feature on the ABC’s Wild Kitchen this Saturday night.

NAMBUCCA'S resident television chef Clayton Donovan will feature on ABC TV's Wild Kitchen, as the show explores the diverse landscape and culture of the North Coast.

Mr Donovan will travel through the indigenous nations of the region, visiting farms and providores to source the freshest ingredients for his recipes.

At the heart of the series is Mr Donovan's down-to-earth approach to cooking, focusing on sustainable farming and "paddock sourcing" ingredients.

The people, stories, culture and landscape combine to create a vibrant and upbeat series that incorporates indigenous culture and native foods in a refreshing and distinctive way.

"To me it's about gathering food from the source whenever possible and meeting the people who produce it," Mr Donovan said.

"Plus, look where we live, it is one of the most amazing places in the world, you can't really go wrong when you pull it all together."

Some of the recipes created in the series include spanner crab with "roo'sciutto" and cauli puree, Asian-inspired water buffalo salad with davidson plum and a native flower-infused panna cotta with wild raspberries and bush honey.

A taster series will screen in June/July between River Cottage and Gardening Australia, starting Saturday on ABC1 at 5.50pm.
