Jamie Oliver in Huntington America to start a food revolution by highlighting problems of unhealthy eating at home and in American schools.
The impassioned chef, TV personality and best-selling author is determined to take on the high statistics of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in Huntington, West Virginia, America, where the nation's children are the first generation not expected to live as long as their parents. Jamie Oliver is inviting viewers to take a stand and change the way America eats, at home, in schools and workplaces, with this thought-provoking new TV series.
Though french fries count as vegetables according to the whoever's in charge of the Huntington, West Virginia school food program, renowned British chef Jamie Oliver kindly disagrees. Huntington had recently been singled out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the nation's unhealthiest. Jamie Oliver hopes to help get Huntington off that list and start a chain reaction of positive change across America.
Oliver says, "The time is right for people to rediscover the sense of pride, satisfaction and fun you can get from cooking for the people you love. There's an incredible community in Huntington, and I want this experience to be a celebration of what we can achieve when people come together. I want to prove that turning around the epidemic of obesity and bad health doesn't have to be boring or dull in the slightest. Wonderful stories will unfold in Huntington, and hopefully this will inspire the rest of the States.
Jamie Oliver is the author of nine popular cookbooks, including The Naked Chef, Cook with Jamie, Jamie at Home, and Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals.
