Orford: Pupils hoping to cook up a record-breaker with TV chef Jamie Oliver
12:04 14 May 2014
Television chef Jamie Oliver is sending his cooking mentor to an east Suffolk primary school as part of a world record breaking “cook-along” attempt.
Orford Primary School, a flagship in Mr Oliver’s kitchen garden project, will be welcoming star chef Gennaro Contaoldo to celebrate Food Revolution Day on Friday.
Pupils will spend the day showing off their cooking skills to the local community before taking part in a cook-along, hosted by Mr Oliver, in an attempt to break the record for the most people cooking the same dish within 24 hours.
Nora Sands, the original dinner lady from Jamie’s School Dinners, will also be at the school taking part in the cookery celebrations.
Food Revolution Day is an annual event set up by the Jamie Oliver Foundation and the Good Foundation in Australia in a bid to teach every child about food, how to cook it, and how it affects their bodies.
