Born in Scotland to Scottish-Italian parents, Jack Zonfrillo found his spiritual home in Australia and a connection to the Aboriginal culture, which has fascinated and influenced his work since. Gaining experience with iconic chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Zonfrillo worked in London and Sydney and opened his own restaurant on the stunning coast of Cornwall in the U.K. Jock returned to Australia in the year 2000, taking a Head Chef position at Restaurant 41. He began exploring the Aboriginal culture, philosophy and the culinary traditions of the country. After moving to Adelaide and founding both Restaurant Orana and Restaurant Blackwood, Jock was approached for the programme ‘Nomad Chef’ on the Discovery Channel. In keeping with Zonfrillo’s own ethos, the programme provides a captivating insight into the cuisine and culture of some of the most remote communities on earth. All Jock’s commercial success underscores his non - profit organisation: The Orana Foundation, which preserves and evolves Australian food culture and assists indigenous enterprise.
