The Village Festival’s World Kitchen is a mobile food stage that includes commercial cookery equipment, steel benchtops, sinks, a built-in waste water capture system, plus pots, pans, cooking utensils and more.
The World Kitchen is not about producing the fanciest most spectacular food; rather it is about extracting the stories behind the food, getting to know the people who create the food and having fun with cooking. The World Kitchen hosts food demonstrations from the serious to the spurious, a spectacular “Iron Chef” competition, and/or other programs that are tailored to reflect the host community. It can showcase local restauranteurs, home cooks and special guests and is hosted by skilled MCs that keep the “slow burn” entertainment engaging.
As the name suggests, The World Kitchen explores food from all corners of the globe. The World Kitchen can also feature 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.
