Now let’s try to concentrate about Jamie Olivier and today’s Revolution we need. Oliver is one of the world’s best-loved television personalities and one of Britain’s most famous exports. Jamie has had huge success with television Jamie’s Kitchen, Jamie’s School Dinners, Jamie at Home just to tell two of them.
Jamie has inspired people to spend more time enjoying being in the kitchen – and even start growing their own food! His programmes have now been broadcast in over 100 countries. Having been translated into over 30 languages, the accompanying cookbooks are bestsellers not only in the UK but across the world.
For Jamie, born in 1975, food in not only health but a mission in 2004, motivated by the poor state of school dinners in UK schools, Jamie embarked on one of his most ambitious ventures to date. He went back to school with the aim of educating and motivating the kids and dinner ladies to enjoy cooking and eating healthy, nutritious lunches rather than the processed foods that they were used to. Jamie launched a national campaign called Feed Me Better (www.feedmebetter.com) and launched an online petition for better school meals. As a result of the 271,677 signatures on the petition, which Jamie took to 10 Downing Street on 30th March 2005, the government pledged an extra £280 million to improve the standard of school meals, to provide training for dinner ladies and equipment for schools. Over seven months of hard work and constant filming culminated in the award-winning series Jamie’s School Dinners. The series prompted a public outcry for change to the school meals system and was awarded Best Factual programme at the UK National TV Awards. Jamie also received a special award for his contribution to television at the National TV awards. The model was successful and to export so…
In 2009 Jamie was in America, this time to West Virginia, to start his first major network series for America television. “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” premiered on ABC in America in March 2010, winning its slot each week with ratings peaking at 7.5 million. Jamie appeared on Oprah to launch the campaign and also carried out high profile interviews on Letterman, Leno and Nightline as well as press interviews in The New York Times and TIME magazine. Jamie became the recipient of the prestigious TED award for 2010 at a ceremony in California and in August 2010 the Food Revolution series received an Emmy Award for Best Reality Series.
I really think that Jamie’s field is not really cooking but revolutions, and positive, pacific ones are not easy but possible as we can see. He is definitively one person that can made the difference. Jamie is also in love with latin culture, he has studied and worked in France and Italy, country he specially loves, so he’s one of us, one with the latin touc . As usual the clip is also funny so don’t loose it and remember the time for revoltions is NOW.
Ok, that’s all for today keep healthy and cook well womanhood.
