Jamie Oliver’s mobile kitchen lands on the Gold Coast
ANS of Jamie Oliver will be excited to learn Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen will be on the Gold Coast from January 11 next year.
The purpose-built kitchen classroom on wheels will arrive with a team of dedicated food trainers on a mission to teach locals how to cook simple, nutritious meals.
The course is open to adults and children aged 12 years and over who want to learn the basics of cooking and have fun in the kitchen.
The mobile kitchen will be at the Country Paradise Park at Nerang from January 11 and will move to the Oxenford/Coomera Community and Youth Centre from February 18, where it will stay for five weeks.
Classes are held at the same time each day, for five weeks and run for 90 minutes.
Each class has a maximum of eight participants and is completely hands on so participants get to see, smell and feel and taste everything that they cook.
About 240 people are expected to complete the mobile kitchen course.
Jamie’s Ministry of Food chief executive officer Alicia Peardon said the program was a practical solution to obesity, diet-related disease and a lack of basic food skills.
“Jamie’s Ministry of Food is about getting people cooking again, teaching them how to shop and enjoy food in a way that benefits them and their families,’’ she said.
The Gold Coast City Council’s active and healthy team is taking bookings. The cost is $ 25 per person.
There is also the chance to volunteer to help in Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen.
Volunteers must be aged over 18 and must have a keen interest in food and helping people learn how to cook.
To book call the council on 5581 6984. For information about Jamie’s Ministry of Food, email Reece Mitchell at email@example.com
