Being a Brit, and having followed Jamie Oliver since his early days, when we were all more than a little taken with the idea of the 'Naked Chef' (don't tell me that didn't get you thinking?!), I'm excited to be having a house full of friends to view the Jme collection of products for cooking, entertaining, dining and serving that has become available in the US for one year now.
I love Jamie's enthusiasm for food, but not only that. He is a real leader in bringing food education and healthy eating to kids. Teaching kids where food comes from and making the right choices. He now has the Big Rig here in the US, a mobile kitchen built in an enormous truck, that visits schools and communities giving children cooking lessons. The Big Rig has just finished at 40 week, 6 city tour, giving cooking classes to over 5,000 children.
Jamie is all about enjoying food, from the growing and shopping, to preparation, cooking, sharing and eating with family and friends, and the products are of a quality and design that goes hand in hand with all of this.
I'll update you after Tuesday with what I'm sure will be more than a few purchases I make.
