Camping Cuisine

Meet Javier Duharte

Javier has a passion for art and cooking and loves to combine the two by creating dishes that not only taste great but look great! He came to Australia from South America at the age of 8 and lived in a caravan for several months. It was here that he found a love for the bush and the outdoors and enjoys travelling, camping and going on the road. Javier enjoys cooking for his friends and family and there is no exception, whether he is camping or caravanning. Javier loves the challenge of creating new recipes by fusing cuisines from different cultures or adapting recipes to create tasty and exciting new dishes. Javier directed some of our previous episodes of camping cuisine and he is now looking forward to being in front of the camera sharing some of his favourite recipes with you. Salud!
