Excelencias Gourmet - - Cocinasdelmundo -

Jock Zonfrillo has spent 17 years of his li­fe trying to res­cue coo­king tra­di­tions from Aus­tra­lia’s in­di­ge­nous po­pu­la­tion.

For this half-Scotch-half-Ita­lian chef, gas­tro­nomy is a turf of di­ver­sity that stret­ches out be­yond cul­tu­ral ba­rriers; it’s all about a bet on sa­fe guar­ding he­ri­ta­ge and co­llec­ti­ve me­mory.

Re­cog­ni­zed with the Basque Cu­li­nary World Pri­ze 2018, his work is ren­de­red in a re­search pro­ject that has ma­na­ged to co­llect over 10,000 au­tocht­ho­nous in­gre­dients, let alo­ne a res­tau­rant that brings abo­ri­gi­nal cul­tu­ral tra­di­tions clo­ser to a much wi­der pu­blic.
