Clayton Donovan grew up on Gumbaynggirr and Bundjalung land on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. From the age of four he began learning about native produce while out walking with his aunties and grandmothers, taking what they found in the bush or along the coastline and cooking at their homes. After completing an apprenticeship in Sydney, Clayton moved to England to take up various sous chef and head chef positions, building on an already vast culinary repertoire of gastronomic and European cuisine. In 2008 Clayton returned to Nambucca Heads to open Jaaning Tree, a restaurant combining his international experience with an understanding of Australian native foods to produce a unique and contemporary cuisine with an Indigenous twist. Clayton won the Australian Good Food Guide Chef hat four times in a row (2011–2014) and is the only Indigenous chef to have achieved that accolade. After five years of trading Clayton decided to close Jaaning Tree to bring his passion for native foods to a wider audience. Clayton now focuses on pop-up restaurants, school workshops, cooking demonstrations and is currently writing a kid’s cook book.
