Jamie Oliver’s mo­bile kitchen lands on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SCHOOL HOLIDAY GUIDE -

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 reece@style­coun­sel.com.au
