Did you watch Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution? The six-episode season went by fast, but Oliver has extended the campaign beyond the show and continues to build momentum. What did you take away from the show?
For our readers here at The Kitchn, we think, stressing the importance of fresh, home-cooked meals is sort of preaching to the choir. But it's still a great reminder and wonderful to see people getting excited about healthy food for the first time.
We also got some new ideas for recipes. In the first episode, Jamie served a simple chopped salad right on the cutting board as part of a meal that showed a family how simple a homemade dinner can be. We love the idea – it doesn't get any less fussy than that!
In the end, Jamie seemed to succeed in changing the minds of some of the decision makers in the area, and in getting a lot of individuals and families excited about eating better. The food system isn't fixed, by any means, but we think the show is one more step toward change. And every step helps.
And with that, we'll turn the discussion over to you. What did you think of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution?
