The World Kitchen brings together food, performance and community.
Through a community engagement process, we explore food security, nutrition and heritage to “cook up” the food stories of communities across Australia, from the serious to the spurious.
The World Kitchen’s cooking demonstrations pay homage to home cooks alongside local restaurateurs. Our skilled hosts delve deep into the origin of the meal being prepared before your eyes. What results is a hilarious and participatory performance that includes song, dance, tales and more.
Imagine the love-child of Nigella and the Swedish Chef and you are getting close to The World Kitchen.
As the name suggests, The World Kitchen explores food from all corners of the globe and features music and dance performances from cultures that match the style of food being cooked.
Audiences are encouraged to get involved in the creation and the tasting of the finished products.
In recent times, The Village World Kitchen has made appearances in The Piers Festival, Emerge in the West, Tennant Creek for the Desert Harmony Festival, Showcase Victoria, St Kilda, Floriade Fringe Edinburgh Gardens and Benalla.
