Often referred to as the "Guru" of camp oven cooking, Ranger Nick is the master of keeping it simple and has been demonstrating camp oven and bush cooking skills professionally since 2010, travelling the country and abroad. Coming from a large family, he whips up a cracker of a meal with whatever is in the tuckerbox. A previous environmental education support officer and Ranger Guide from outback Queensland, Ranger Nick is putting his bush skills to use wherever his travels take him. When he is not cooking up a storm in the camp oven, Ranger Nick passes on his knowledge to school groups and fellow adventurers, teaching them the art of bush survival, hunting and cooking. Considered a dinky-di Aussie character who walks his talk with no dull moments, Ranger Nick’s colloquial language and unique sense of humour have earned him the reputation of the entertaining Bush Cook. Keeping heritage and traditions alive, he combines educational information with bush poetry, yarns and ballads during his camp oven cooking demonstrations. Appealing to young and old, he leaves a lasting impression wherever he goes and is a conversational point long after the show has finished.
Ranger Nick has weekly segments on River 94.9FM, guest appearances on Merv’s Outdoors, is the author of two books, has released a DVD, developed a comprehensive Outdoor Training Program, frequently gets invited to judge at large camp oven cooking competitions, and represents the typical down to earth Aussie country bloke. He will bring the outdoors into your kitchen at home, into the back yard, or show how to get out there and do it in style.
