Clayton Donovan.
Nanjing Night Net

Australia’s only hatted indigenous chef and star of the ABC’s Wild Kitchen, Clayton Donovan, will launchthe Bellingen Shire Local Food Guide and Growers’ Market flyerlaunch at the Bellingen Growers Market on Saturday, November 14 from 9.30am.

The guide and flyer were developed with the help of the shire’s food businesses and community groups and include 45 entries of local food producers, processors, suppliers, markets and community initiatives. The Growers’ Market flyer highlights four markets in the shire where customers can source local food.

Clayton began foraging with his Aunty Jess around their Mid North Coast home from the age of four. While this indigenous generational knowledge was shared with him at home, his mum would be trying new recipes from Europe, and it was this fusion of flavours that left an indelible mark and defined his career as a celebrated chef and champion of bush foods. During the launch, Claytonwill talk about the native ingredients that can be sourced from the bush and how they can be used in moderncuisine.

The event will start with a Gumbaynggirr Welcome to Country and finish with sweet treats cooked by Clayton. Tea and coffee will be available at the Growers’ Market stall and the market café will be open for lunch. Music will be performed by the members of Janugiina, Uncle Michael Jarrett and Larry Hancock in Gumbaynggirr language. Janugiina is a word used in the eagle and fire dreaming story and is a request for energy/power. Entertainment will be performed by the Akabella Choir.

Mayor Mark Troy said this event was an excellent opportunity for council to acknowledge and support the value of the local food economy and community-driven local food initiatives.

“The aim of the guide and flyer are to increasethe awareness and appreciation of local food sources to help local farmers and producers thrive and recognise the excellent work done by community groups creating local markets, community gardens, edible streetscapes, as well as saving heritage seeds,” Cr Troy said.

“I encourage residents and visitors to our beautiful shire to talk to producers, processors, restaurants and cafés to get to know your local food. Buying local food means that we are reducing our reliance on fossil fuel transport and have the freshest and most nutritious food available. I welcome you to savour our local food culture.”

Council will also present the local food guide at the Mid North Coast Food Forum to be held on November 9.The launch and food forum are part of the Living Coast Festival running throughout the month of November.
