Abandoned Chef

Image 1 / 4

In a world of globalised brands and convenience foods, the idea of harvesting your own ingredients, eating a seasonal diet and cooking traditionally is in danger of going the way of the dodo. ‘Abandoned Chef’ is an extreme adventure cooking series featuring chef Jock Zonfrillo on a journey to celebrate the world’s native cuisines and save a treasure trove of gastronomic knowledge from extinction. Embarking on a journey to some of the world’s remotest communities, he hunts, harvests and forages with indigenous people for the ingredients that go into their dishes and learns to cook as the locals do; discovering the culinary genius hiding in these communities and seeking to uncover what they can teach us about living sustainably, cooking creatively and eating the best way we can. Jock then pays homage to their culinary know-how by attempting to reinvent their signature dishes back at his top-flight Australian restaurant and create completely new recipes
