If you haven’t seen this yet, it is wonderful and absolutely worth twenty minutes of your time. It made me cry, and reminded me all too well of what I saw, first hand, in cafeterias of NYC public schools all last year.
On visiting an elementary school classroom, Jamie comments: “Immediately you get a really clear sense of if the kids have any idea where food comes from… If kids don’t know what stuff is, then they will never eat it…We’ve got to start teaching kids about food in schools. Period.”
“The home needs to start passing on cooking again. For sure. Pass it on as a philosophy. And for me it’s quite romantic, but it’s about if one person teaches three people to cook something, and they teach three of their mates, that only has to repeat itself twenty-five times, and that’s the whole population of America.” –Jamie Oliver
