What comes to mind when you hear the words gourmet and Inland Empire? There's not too many places that label themselves as gourmet and for good reason. The IE is host to many really good restaurants, steak houses and trendy gastropubs but not many that really qualify as a gourmet eatery. VC Gourmet fits the bill! While visually it's not exactly what comes to mind when thinking gourmet or fine dining, the food is exquisite...

CATERINA’S CLUB KFI 640AM PastaThon 2017
In 2005, Bruno and his mother, Caterina, visited the Boys and Girls Club of Anaheim down the street from his restaurant (Anaheim White House), where his mother noticed that there was a 6-year old boy eating potato chips for dinner, because his family couldn’t afford a proper meal. Caterina insisted that Bruno make some pasta for the child. They soon realized that there were many more of these hungry ‘motel children’, so Bruno began making pasta for 72 children, 5 nights a week, giving birth to our program “Feeding the Kids in America”. Today, that event has expanded to feeding nearly 1,200 children, 5 nights a week. VC Gourmet has been designated as an alternative drop off location for this Holiday Season! We will announce very soon when we will begin collecting donations.
