In a huge win for South Australia, the City of Onkaparinga and Colonnades Shopping Centre will host the first Jamie Oliver Ministry of Food Pop Up Kitchen in Australia.
The Ministry of Food received 170 applications from all over Australia, with the joint bid submitted by the City of Onkaparinga and Colonnades chosen by Jamie (fondly known as Pukka) over seven other finalists – one from each state.
The Pop Up kitchen will be located in Colonnades Shopping Centre and will open onto Ramsay Place, a green community space that will allow for alfresco dining and space for a herb and vegetable garden. Colonnades will boast a commercial standard kitchen suitable for cooking lessons and demonstrations.
Community groups, schools and businesses will also be encouraged to use the space for special food related events and education sessions.
The City of Onkaparinga and Colonnades Shopping Centre wish to thank the businesses and community groups that provided letters of support, the local schools who participated in our school engagement and the thousands of people who signed the petition, liked and shared Facebook posts and the YouTube video.
Over the coming weeks we will be working with Colonnades and the Ministry of Food to identify opportunities for our communities, businesses and schools to be involved.
