This gorgeous illustrated, informative and contemporary cookbook and compendium of native foods will show you how to create truly Australian food and drinks at home. With a few small adjustments and a little experimentation, you can prepare delicious food that is better for the Australian environment, is more sustainable and celebrates the amazing ingredients that are truly local.

Please note there are two covers for this book. 

The first print run had Damien's hands holding Quandong and the second edition has a picture of the Strawberry Gum Pavlova.  

We have sold out of the first print  and Warndu is now shipping the second print with the Strawberry Gum Pavlova on the front cover.  

To maintain Warndu taste we keep smaller quantities on hand of our Australian Natives, it takes us a little while to dry, roast or grind them to make. We aim to send all orders within ten days of receiving them.

Fabulous Recipes!

I haven't made any of the recipes yet but I am very busy planting my bush tucker garden using this book as a guide. Can't wait to sink my teeth into some new and exotic flavours!

Five stars all round - A beautiful book, opening up my culinary world

I was so excited when I ordered 'Warndu Mai: Good Food' and it did not disappoint. This beautifully produced book arrived in the post very quickly and is a truly Australian feast for the stomach, eyes and heart. I found the recipes (from simple to complex) to be clearly explained. Helpful tips and work-arounds, and warm and generous stories are accompanied by glorious photos of food, settings and people...instant and endless inspo. I really hope Warndu Mai becomes a staple in more and more kitchens – it deserves to and will in ours. Thank you, Damien and Rebecca.

Wow we are so grateful for your support and chuffed you loved Warndu Mai as much as us!!

Fabulous Cooking

Loving this cookbook so far. We purchased wattleseed and lemon myrtle to get started also. The native ingredients add some welcome spice to our food; but otherwise using standard household ingredients. Easy to follow and everything we have tried so far has been sensational. Inspired to start growing our own and learn even more about native foods

I purchased your book and products 18 months ago for a friend and have also used the lemon myrtle and wattle seeds. I recently went to the presentation at Adelaide University and was delighted to see you both Damien and Rebecca on the panel. It was an inspiring presentation. so thank you both. The soup was really wonderful, would there be an opportunity to have a copy of the recipe?
I love experimenting with native bush foods and have started to grow them in my garden. I am a teacher so looking forward to sharing the recipes in the book with students and colleagues as we are creating a bush garden with the high school students at the school.
Looking forward to receiving my own book as I have purchased the pantry pack for myself!
