WILD Kitchen presenter and Gumbaynggirr chef Clayton Donovan is enjoying a golden run.

Not only will the first season of the ABC television program be aired on Qantas flights until the end of April, but the show has also been nominated in the most popular lifestyle program category of the TV Week Logie Awards.

"We're stunned. We thought it was a joke for a while, and then we did a bit of research and it was actually happening," Clayton said.

"It's been a wild couple of weeks."

Produced by Headline Productions on the Coffs Coast, the program features Clayton as he travels through Worimi, Birpai, Dunghutti, Gumbaynggirr, and Bundjalung Aboriginal nations, exploring the native foods of the Mid North Coast and North Coast.

Each episode ends with a simple recipe, cooked in the outdoors without any fuss. Click here to vote online for Wild Kitchen.
