Wilmington, program your recorders for ABC tonight at 10:00 pm for a sneak preview of the new reality show: Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. Jamie Oliver was born into a restaurant family in 1975, and started prepping food in his family’s business at the age of 7. By 16, he knew his calling in life, and he quit school to begin his journey toward becoming a chef.
Jamie Oliver is trying to get America to change the way we eat, and he’s got his eye on the unhealthiest town in America: Huntington, W. Va. Known for the tragedy portrayed in the movie “We are Marshall”, where the majority of the university’s football team was killed in a plane crash 40 years ago; Huntington has recently been portrayed as the fattest town in the United States.
Jamie Oliver is known for his mastery of simple, healthy foods; and in this new series, he will challenge what kids are served at school, how families eat, and why processed foods are causing so many problems for Americans today. Taking on the whole community, he teaches families and school lunch ladies to make simple, healthy meals with fresh ingredients and no junk ingredients.
In typical reality show fashion, there will be conflict, laughter, and drama; so don’t miss it! The show schedule is listed below, and you can visit Jamie’s website for more information.
