A new series with a delicious twist on New South Wales’ produce, characters, culture and adventures. Cultural man and comic Western Australian Derek Nannup is taken on a tour of the region by the one-of-a kind Indigenous Chef Mark ‘The Black Olive’.

The Illawarra is where Mark has lived, on and off, for the last three decades. This is his chance to show Derek around and introduce him to everything and everyone the region has to offer, sharing his expertise in the fusion of native herbs with his recipes inspired by the region.

On Country Kitchen Season 2 was developed and produced in Western Australia.
