Kungkas Can Cook are suppliers of ethically sourced organic bush food straight from the Central Desert. They're located at 457 Stuart Highway, Alice Springs but you can SHOP ONLINE. Enjoyed by Aboriginal communities for over 60,000 years, you can now have it in your kitchen. Keep updated by following them on Instagram.


Why not make up a gift box for yourself or a loved one as per their Insta posting (see image below) of a a Kungkas Bushfood Gift Box. I'd certainly love receiving one as I've long wanted Aboriginal ingredients in my kitchen cupboards and in my food. I do believe it ought to be readily available in all our supermarkets.


You can't get better advertising than when fooderati (current MasterChef judge Melissa Leong) comments on your page to buy one. On the subject of MasterChef, the other judge Jock Zonfrillo is renown for using Indigenous ingredients at his Restaurant Orana and works passionately at bringing them to mainstream Australia.

For the time being get your edible products HERE. Find wild lemongrass tea blends, rosella tea, and Kungkas chai tea, plus lovely saltbush and wattle seed dukkah and a bush spice rub amongst other edible and artisan products.


Kungkas Can Cook was born after Rayleen Brown and her Co-founder Gina Smith's first catering job cooking for 100 Walpiri women at a big meeting at Laramba to support Indigenous teachers. They were complimented on their food and told they ought to have a restaurant. Kungkas support and adopt ethical harvesting and procurement of bush food from the first farmers. If you'd like to find out about these principles, SEE HERE.


Rayleen was featured on the SBS Premier of Great Australian Rail Journeys back in early Feb 2020. It's a really interesting 58.51 min video from Port Augusta to Darwin and you'll find Rayleen from 22.39 to 28.10 mins into the video as per link given in this paragraph (not video below).

See the Blog and News page for some of Rayleen's recipes and other news.
