Peter Russell-Clarke is an Australian television personality.

He is most famous as a television chef. He hosted a five-minute television show called "Come and Get It", which aired on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation network during the mid-1980s. He was chef for the Prince of Wales' Silver Jubilee dinner.

He has a friendly on-camera style, and often giggles while explaining his food preparation. This has led to much mimicry from comedians and impressionists around Australia.

On June 30 1981, he appeared as a guest on the Channel Ten comedy series Ratbags.

He is an accomplished painter, and began his career as a freelance cartoonist. He took over the cartoon Ben Bowyang in the Melbourne Herald, drawing it for several years.

He was the winner of the Douglas Wilkie Medal in 1987 for doing the least for football in the best and fairest manner. He has appeared in several memorable television commercials, including some for the Coon brand of cheese.

Some of his catchphrases include:

* 'G'day' (while giggling)
* 'Where's the Cheese?'

He can be heard giving cooking tips on Triple J's breakfast show fortnightly on Tuesdays.
