The Food Revolution Will Be Televised

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution is a new show that debuts Friday, March 26 on ABC. The series will center on Oliver's ongoing crusade to change the way modern society thinks about food and cooking, especially when it comes to children and school lunches. As someone whose blog is dedicated to encouraging people to cook more fresh foods at home, I'm very excited by this project, and hope it lives up to all the hype.

To get you in the proper revolutionary state of mind, check out this TED lecture Oliver did recently. I've always been a big fan of Jamie Oliver's cooking style, and I think it's great for someone like him to use his celebrity to take on a system so horribly broken. Enjoy!

This seems like it's sort of a big duh, thank goodness someone as charismatic as Mr. Oliver is becoming the face of this movement.
Thank you Chef for sharing this with us.

Hey Chef John, as a Brit I'm obsessed with Jamie Oliver but I've got to say that you're just as instrumental in my education now!

*gives e-apple to teacher* :D

Thanks for all the videos- they're such a help in a time when its increasingly hard to get close-up, foolproof instructions.

Great video. More people have to make an effort to start cooking healthy with fresh produce. Can't wait for spring so I can plant my vegetable garden. Nothing like right from the garden into the kitchen.

In a perfect world I would be able to cook along side Chef John and Jamie Oliver in one kitchen. :)

This is a great idea but it won't work when you have big business and government involved. To them, it's all about money. There's a lot of money in controlling the food people eat and Monsanto is working with the government to make organic food illegal. They want it so every farmer MUST use their genetically modified seeds. Whole, natural foods (and personal gardens) are a threat to them and they're after them. If this is the first you've heard about it, look into it. It's a real fight with the government and big business. They want complacent people who do what they're told. That's why they put fluoride, metals and toxins in drinking water and vaccines. It's why they use them in chemtrails. These aren't conspiracy theories anymore. There's been ample evidence of these things.
