Fervor: A Vital Australian Dining Experience and a Vital Australian Cookbook

Indigenous ingredients. Otherworldly settings. A deep connection to country. All are integral to Fervor, the West Australian native food pop-up that has been thrilling diners since 2013. To mark the release of Fervor chef and founder Paul “Yoda” Iskov’s first cookbook, Broadsheet Perth editor Max Veenhuyzen reflects on one of Australia’s most important food stories.

Kaya. From our home on the Wadandi beaches to the Yawuru wetlands to the Ballardong plains to the Gija gorges, we love this Country. We pay our respects to Nature, to Ancestors and to Elders, from the time when the world was soft until tomorrow when the sun rises again. We are grateful to the place and the people who are the traditional custodians, and acknowledge that our work is a celebration of the care for Country that matters to us all. Fervor says thank you Boodja.
