ALICE Springs hospitality lecturer and champion of bush food Athol Wark is working as guest chef at Yasawa Island, one of Fiji's most exclusive resorts. Wark is using indigenous Australian ingredients such as kutjera (bush tomatoes), wattleseed and lemon myrtle alongside such South Pacific produce as rou-rou (Fijian spinach), cassava and taro.
