We would like to acknowledge the Sovereign Custodians of the land on which we gather today. We would like to pay our respects tot eh elders both past, present and emerging.
How it came to be;
Figjam & Co begun a journey with Murri Tukka to develop and integrate indigenous produce into first class catering cuisine.
Murri Tukka lead and managed by Bruce Morgan has an all-inclusive approach to gathering and sourcing produce from the Yuggera-Ugarapul Country. Bruce not only picks and understands the products but also tastes and experiments with new and old preparation techniques for the food.
Figjam & Co lead by Jason Davidson with 30 years of Chef experience around the country and globe puts all of his cooking techniques into being able to use the Bush Tukka in new and innovative ways to capture the imaginations of our clients. The produce that is used for our Bush Tukka range is picked according to season so products that were enjoyed at one time of the year, may not be available for another event at another time in the year.
A bit about Murri Tukka;
All Bush Tukka is supplied by Bruce Morgan from “MURRI TUKKA”, with permission from Sovereign Custodial Elders of Yuggera-Ugarapul Lands. This tukka is wild harvested in an urban & bushland environment in the Ipswich Area and surrounds in a sustainable manner.
Bruce Morgan (Phillips) is a Batjala Man from Hervey Bay in QLD. Bruce combined his profession as a horticulturalist and his love of his culture to create MURRI TUKKA. MURRI TUKKA is a business delivering education about bush tukka to Early Childhood and Primary sectors. He is now venturing into the catering industry in collaboration with Figjam & Co, to deliver flavours of the bush found in Ipswich on Yuggera-Ugarapul Country.
