Rohan spent much of his childhood on a small farm near Jindivick in regional Victoria where he developed not only an affinity for nature but also a deep understanding of the role it plays in providing sustenance.
He has taken these lessons into his adult life where he now grows, hunts, fishes, and forages in wild and urban surroundings – procuring the food to feed his family.
He documented these adventures in his book-come-cookbook, Whole Larder Love, sharing his recipes, slow food philosophies and (sometimes contentious) views with thousands of readers.
Describing himself not as a chef, but rather a family cook, Rohan is influenced by rustic, peasant-style cooking, with minimal fuss involved. You won’t find Anderson in supermarket aisles; instead, he is usually wandering around his back garden, heading for a river, and traipsing through the bush or local paddocks to find his tucker.
