The Vitocco Kitchen
The Vitocco Charitable Foundation’s investment in Powerhouse Parramatta will help the museum showcase histories and cutting-edge thinking about the culture and production of food through two foundational programs: the Vitocco Family Kitchen and the Vitocco Legacy Project.
The Vitocco Family Kitchen will bring together leading chefs and food producers from across Australia and around the world to educate and inspire communities and audiences. It will feature a large-scale demonstration kitchen, seating for audiences of up to 200 people and high-end technology to support digital content creation.
The Vitocco Legacy Project is a multi-year commitment to research and programming which is engaging communities across the disciplines of agriculture, manufacturing, changing land use, cultural diversity and food production. It has established a full-time curator at Powerhouse Parramatta devoted to researching, collecting and sharing the histories, innovations and entrepreneurial spirit of Western Sydney. The Vitocco Legacy Project is integrating with and expanding the Powerhouse Australian Culinary Archive, which is working closely with industry to collect the histories of the great chefs and producers of Australia.
The Vitocco family’s generous $5 million investment in the future of Powerhouse Parramatta will establish innovative and engaging programs centred on food – and uplift the inspiring contributions of Western Sydney communities in Australia’s culinary history.
Powerhouse Parramatta is being realised through the generosity, support and collaboration of the NSW Government, foundations, agencies, businesses and individuals for the community.More
