William Angliss Institute

William Angliss Institute supports proposed Institute of Gastronomy

An Institute of Gastronomy could be established in Daylesford to benefit farmers, fine food producers, food innovators and entrepreneurs thanks to Victorian government funding and Ms Alla Wolf-Tasker AM, Co-Owner and Culinary Director of the Lake House in Daylesford.

Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas MP announced a $100,000 Food Source Victoria grant and a $20,000 contribution from Regional Development Australia to investigate the feasibility of establishing an Institute of Gastronomy.

William Angliss Institute is contributing $30,000 towards the project proposal and will provide expert input with respect to skills and knowledge, business development and the potential operating models.

William Angliss Institute CEO Nicholas Hunt said, “Whilst it is early in the process, the Institute for Gastronomy has the potential to establish a hub for Victoria, offering support and further learning that showcases global expertise and best practice for specialist foods and agri-business.”

The Institute of Gastronomy will foster collaboration between people working in agriculture, food & beverage production, tourism and education. As a community facility the project has the potential to be a catalyst for innovation, functioning as a network and knowledge hub for a diverse collection of artisanal skills and knowledge with local, national and international connections.

Ms Wolf-Tasker AM said, “The institute has the potential to address the up-skilling needs of the industry, to harness the enormous interest in produce provenance and sustainable regenerative agriculture and to support the growth in knowledge and capacity of artisanal food producers and growers. It’s a model which could considerably enhance Victoria’s already substantial reputation as a leader in great and innovative food and wine endeavours.”

 “William Angliss Institute is delighted to be a sponsor and founding education partner of The Institute of Gastronomy and looks forward to working with Alla Wolf-Tasker and the local community to help build and share knowledge centered on these artisan skills,” Mr Hunt said.

The Government’s Food Source Victoria program supports producers and businesses working in partnership to develop products that take the State’s superb produce to the next level, creating new jobs and growing exports.
