Food Revolution Day is happening on 15 May

Earlier this year, we brought you the news that the chef, cookbook author, school dinner crusader and owner of restaurants and a TV production empire had added yet another string to his bow: songwriter.

 

The naked chef teamed up with Ed Sheeran to make sweet, sweet music to promote Food Revolution Day, which aims to educate children about food on 15 May.

 

The track penned by Oliver and Sheeran, which includes vocals from Sir Paul McCartney and rap advice from Hollywood A-lister Hugh Jackman (yes, really), has finally been released (listen here). However, that’s not all that the chef has planned.

 

If you’ve got any political fire left in you, Oliver’s Food Revolution Day has a serious goal: to get practical food education back onto the school curriculum.

 

On 15 May, he will be sending his apprentices from his restaurant, Fifteen, to lead cookery demonstrations at London’s Borough Market, teaching skills such as filleting fish, boning meat, and making sauces and condiments (such as mayonnaise). There will be workshops for children, too – hello wood-fired oven to cook your pizza creations in.

 

Events will be taking place at the Market Hall in Borough Market, 10am-3pm. Find out how to support Food Revolution Day here.
