Sounds like a great talk. I loved Jamie's Food Revolution. Even my husband took an interest in it. He was trying to change the food in the school system. I can't remember what city it was in, but it was in the US somewhere. Honestly, it was quite an eye opener - bad choices to save a buck sort of thing. He also put on town cooking lessons and worked really hard trying to get people to change the way they thought about cooking and eating and spending that time together as a family.

The town had coffins that were humungous because the average person was obese and wouldn't fit into a regular coffin. Super scary stuff. But Jamie had such compassion and you could just tell that he really cared. I really enjoyed watching it. So much, that I got his latest cookbook and it's awesome. A lot of english style dishes. Everything I've made so far has been really good. Trying to cook more from fresh. He sounds like a great guy - glad you enjoyed the talk. And thanks for sharing!


Great post!


I love 'Food Revolution' - I'm always amazed at how little elementary kids know about vegetables - they had no idea what broccoli and a tomato were. I'm thankful that he is doing so much good with the power he has. I'm also thankful for 2 grandmas, countless aunts, and a mom who are all fantastic cooks!

Wasnt food revolution great?  My kids watched with us and they were so sad.  Lucky for you to come from a family of cooks!

We loved the Food Revolution, too.  All four of us.  It was a great talk and I love his passion for feeding people well.


Love this interview! I quoted the line about starting your own food revolution at home in my recent post on family dinner. http://bit.ly/glRhLR


I liked the comment about learning to cook with someone and I thought of my grandmother and the little things she taught me about being a better cook.
