Listen up. Cooking can be a joy, so let’s support Jamie Oliver and Food Revolution on May 17. Cook with your friends and family. Anything. Recreate your favourite recipe or bake something completely new to you. It doesn’t need to be complicated. Simple is good. The most important thing is to enjoy the food and the company. Be aware of what you eat and where your ingredients are coming from. Spread the word and your love of cooking. Don’t be too bossy though!

Cook it! Share it! Live it!
