I couldn't believe it! We were finally here, after months of looking enviously at the queue of people outside, and even more enviously at those already inside, I could finally say I'd been there, done that! Jamie's Italian could be ticked off my to-do list!

Amazing Video Of Jamie Oliver Teaching People That Food Saves Lives


There is not much l can say as a chef about food as a way to keep us healthy, in mind body heart and soul ,other than to say it Jamie's way!
This Video of him giving his passion to an appreciative audience at Ted Talks, is just awe inspiring!

His overwhelming commitment is shown in his face, the virtual tears in his eyes and the ever present need to say to people " eat good food and save our children's lives" they are the future!

The amazing way in this video that he provides us with a simple item such as "flavoured milk" supplied by to schools through-out the United States of America to our children! This is not done in the name of keeping them healthy but purely for the profit factor, by adding massive amounts of sugar.

Anyone visiting this blog, please down load leave a comment or just leave feeling that you want to change, how your children are fed!

Then get out your recipe book and if you have a problem hit the link below and send me details, and add your email and l will email back, as much information as possible!

Remember everyone can cook just that some people do not know how, l will show you just how simple it is, then maybe one day you will be able to feel as passionate about food, as Jamie Oliver.          

Enjoy CJ Resident Chef

The posts l provide are my views of good recipes and also are shared from a number of contacts, news and blogging services. They are not always tried and tested by me unless it states that l have cooked any myself,whereby it will be noted on the post accordingly.

Celebrity Status does not cook meals - a chef and team do ALL the work

Well my readers and friends l am back from a well earned holiday and started back last Monday! This time l thought l would post two quotes related very much to celebrity status and Kit Chapman and Shirley Conran and both very different in their views. The first Kit is all l believe " Catering and Hospitality" should be about the second is not and represents the attitude many so-called celebrity chefs and people in the media,portray.

Anyway as l said back and working at both catering and hospitality this includes my new trainee who l started assessing a few weeks ago! She is neither a caterer or someone that can see the real hospitality of the job! As comments like they should not be so fussy and eat what they are given and be grateful come to mind.Anyway she wants to become a chef and as l have so far found out,she thinks it is easy! So best way was leave her on her own with everything to do written down of course with a watchful eye by the manager and see what happens,during my holiday!

Well upon my return l found out that she could not cope,had not listened and had not even read my notes and carried out the instructions.So a new way had to be found and we started on the first step just as l had been taught and ignored all she thought she knew!

l started by looking at status and how the label really makes us all feel including of course,her! My first question was related to the " Art of Cooking" whereby using the " Five Senses of Cooking" it would become an art in her heart.But first step was to ask why she wants to be a chef and her answer simply was - l don't l was told by the manager it would be easier than the job l do at present,following my recent operation! I was of course taken a back and decided to explore further - do you cook l asked? - yes that was a start - and do you enjoy cooking? yes - so good so far! Her next answer floored me? I asked what is your favorite dish? - she said l do not really like food! What! 

OK we have to start by using the first 3 senses these are seeing,smelling and tasting food of all types l said? We made a simple dish of an omelet and she served it to me! It was bland and l asked if she tasted it and she said l never taste my food! This told me that she was afraid of making mistakes and as l said without mistakes we never learn! I think she understood and since the last few days she has cooked a pizza and it tasted better and l make sure she eats her dinner from the menu to taste other food! She needs to look more and smell the aroma of foods and comment more on dishes,but it is early days! Will she make a chef! NO a good cook possibly with mastering the first 3 senses and practising the last 2 of hearing and touching food! She will never cook food fit for a King or Queen or even a celebrity, but with hard conscientious work she could learn to cook good,wholesome,nutritious and tasty food and that would be good enough for me and the people we serve.

Now that's " Catering and Hospitality" and that is what all chefs do and they do not need celebrity status or the media to show them how!

QUOTATIONS: TOO FANCY 

1. " Much of what l read and see {about food} is so perfect,so fancy that it defies limitations...anyway,for most ordinary mortals.The foodie movement has put cookery on a pedestal when cookery is for the kitchen,the family and friends.Pedestals are for prima donnas,heroes and perhaps,a handful of chefs.But cookery is for everyday."

You choose which of these quotes sums you up and leave a comment:

I am the caterer,cook,chef and an assessor and sometimes even the bottle washer and cleaner.
