In a story of true reconciliation, a world-renowned chef
and an Indigenous traditional landowner met on sacred
homelands in East Arnhem Land to share, learn and
create something extraordinary for OLPC Australia.

The Bawaka Homelands are a pristine stretch of coast,
home to the Gumatj clan. The ocean teems with life
-- oysters and clams, mud crab and mullet -- all of which
can be plucked out of the water.

Having travelled over 4,220km to meet Djawa 'Timmy'
Burarrwanga, stepping onto the Bawaka Homelands
was, for Tony Bilson, like stepping into a new world.

The experience the men shared in their time together
was the beginning of a remarkable friendship. Together
they hunted, prepared food and ate over fires, exchanging
stories about their very different yet somehow parallel lives.
Inspired by this rare insight into the practices of the oldest
living civilisation on earth, Tony Bilson recreated his
remarkable culinary experience for guests at OLPC Australia's 1st Anniversary Dinner with a
menu that reflected tradition and incorporates techniques
for which Tony is famous.
