Black Olive, The


Mark Olive, a.k.a. The Black Olive, uses traditional, native Australian ingredients to give popular and contemporary recipes an indigenous overhaul. He demonstrates how to make a possum pie, how to turn Australia's Coat of Arms into a delicious kangaroo mignon and how the bark from the paperbark tree is used as 'Aboriginal alfoil'. From balmain bugs with eucalyptus butter to a bush caesar salad, the charismatic chef's creative use of indigenous herbs and spices has earned him a strong and loyal following on the ABC TV's Indigenous affairs program, Message Stick.
