Agoness Kuol | Shepparton Culture Kitchen


Yɛɛn anhiar bupuch

Agoness Kuol is originally from South Sudan. She made Shepparton home in 2001 with her husband and is bringing up her six children as part of a community that she loves and is proud of. Agoness learned how to cook with her mother, making traditional recipes that have been passed down through generations in her family. Her cooking style has continued to evolve since living in Australia with foods and recipes from all over the world, a mix of different cultures and traditions. The most important thing to her though is that food is created with love and shared with others.

Produced by MAVGreater Shepparton City Council and Point of Difference Studio, the Shepparton Culture Kitchen project is one of 5 initiatives supported through VicHealth’s Art of Good Health program. Drawing on Shepparton’s identity as Victoria’s ‘food bowl’ and its most culturally diverse regional town, Shepparton Culture Kitchen is a significant arts initiative centreing the voices of local women of colour, to build a future in which we are connected through empowering, healthy and sustainable food cultures.
