Clinto’s Kupmurri

Clinto’s Kupmurri is the brainchild of Gold Coast local Clinton Shultz, of the Gamilaraay people, who is bringing traditional Aboriginal kupmurri to the streets after decades of working as a chef in top kitchens throughout Australia and Europe. For those not entirely familiar, ‘kupmurri’ is the traditional style of cooking a ceremonial feast underground, similar to a Maori hangi, where native ingredients and game meats are wrapped and cooked in paperbark to create a truly unique smoky flavour. Obviously commercial regulations don’t permit the service of food that’s cooked in the ground (dang!), but luckily Clinton has developed contemporary methods to replicate the same flavours, textures and aromas of a traditional kupmurri to be able to bring it to the streets and share the uniqueness of Aboriginal food with the masses.
