Wherever in the world you live, you’ve probably heard of Jamie Oliver. TV chef turned international food icon, Jamie Oliver is much more than just a cook with TV programmes broadcast in dozens of countries. A bestselling author and owner of countless restaurants around the globe, Jamie is also a staunch advocate for healthy, balanced eating. But how did he get to where he is today?

Jamie Oliver’s route to fame

While Jamie now figures among the world’s most famous chefs, the many other facets of this British icon are sometimes less well-known. His route to fame started on the set of the cooking show The Naked Chef, but ever since then he’s been putting his talents to other uses, too.

Inquisitive and passionate, Jamie’s interest in cooking is fuelled primarily by his desire to help people in their daily lives. So nowadays, when Jamie Oliver’s name is mentioned, people don’t just think of his many recipe books, cookery courses and restaurants (such as Fifteen and Jamie’s Italian), but also of his crusade for healthy living for everyone.

Advocating healthy eating

Jamie’s agenda has always been about getting families cooking together and eating homemade meals full of fresh ingredients. It’s an anti-junk food crusade that calls on young and old alike to start cooking simple, delicious recipes with quality ingredients. Jamie’s website features a huge variety of recipes and inspiration to get you cooking up a storm in the kitchen and enjoying eating wholesome, healthy food. So it seemed a natural step for him to team up with Tefal to develop a range of pots and pans that meet everyone’s needs – from home cooks to serious chefs and everyone in between.

Jamie’s back and he’s launching the Food Revolution – an ongoing, global campaign to provoke debate and inspire positive, meaningful change in the way our children access, consume and understand food.

ABOUT THE FOOD REVOLUTION

“We’re in the middle of a global health crisis. Right now, an astounding 41 million children under five are overweight, while another 159 million are too undernourished to grow properly. We’re failing both our children and future generations by not empowering them with the right food and skills they need to grow healthily and happily. This year, Jamie is launching a year-round, global Food Revolution to educate and inspire people and communities to make better food choices and lobby governments and businesses to make positive, lasting change.”

You can get involved too! Change can start at home, simply by learning to cook a few nutritious meals and passing those new skills onto friends and family. Change can mean getting your kids in the kitchen, supporting local food or inviting your loved ones around a table to enjoy good food, cooked from scratch. You can also advocate change at a community level, by signing up to the Food Revolution, keeping up-to-date with all the latest news, and supporting Jamie and his partner’s campaigns in making everyone’s united voice heard.

OK, so ironing isn’t your idea of fun! But here’s some good news –with just a few smart changes to your washing routine, you’ll save time and take better care of your fabrics. Read on to find out more!

Effective ironing starts with your wash!

8 smart tips that make all the difference

Your washing:

You love the clothes you wear because they represent who you are. So take care of them by following these helpful tips:

1. Turn your clothes inside out before you put them in the washing machine, as this will reduce bobbling.

2. You can use a colour-catcher sheet if you’re washing several different colours together.

3. The other golden rule is to use the recommended amount of washing powder or liquid. Too much is pointless and may even clog up your machine.

4. If your water is very hard, add an anti-limescale product to each wash.

5. And finally, wash at low temperatures – between 30° and 40° – as water that is too hot may make your favourite outfits shrink or lose their shape.

Drying:

Read your clothes labels! Some fabrics won’t withstand going in the dryer at all, and most clothes will carry an unpleasant smell if put away before drying completely - save yourself from double washing with these drying tips:

1. Most garments will shrink if the temperature is too high, so use the delicate cycle.

2. Hang your shirts, jumpers and T-shirts on hangers so that they don’t lose their shape.

3. If you use a clothes horse, space out your laundry, even when it’s hot, because clothing that hasn’t dried properly gives off an unpleasant smell when ironed.

FRD-LOGOIt kicked off at the Sydney Opera House this March as Tefal partner Jamie Oliver staged a #FoodRevolution – petitioning for food education to be added to all curricula globally.  The worldwide obesity issue has fueled the fire behind this passion project as we’re currently in an era where, for the first time, there are more people who are overweight than underweight.

Jamie’s vision
“My wish is to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

 

Take action and Join the revolution:

  • Sign the global petition at change.org where Jamie Oliver will be calling on the leaders and governments of all G20 to make food education a compulsory part of every school curriculum.
  • There are plenty of ways you can get involved, from whipping up delicious recipes with kids, hosting a foodie event in your community or challenging your workmates to a cook-off to sharing your photos on the #foodrevolutionday via social media.
  • Tell your local school. Get your local school to register online, download the teaching materials and get involved in Jamie’s exclusive cooking lesson online on Food Revolution Day

All the tips and tricks for perfect rice!

Pan or rice cooker – it’s up to you

So. You love rice  in all its forms, but you tend to overcook it or find it stuck to the bottom of your pan. For hassle-free rice, you need to equip yourself with either a rice cooker or a good-quality, non-stick pan. Whichever you choose, the next step is to give your rice a good rinse in cold water.
Ultra practical and ideal for large families (and for anyone who constantly lets their milk or water boil over!), a rice cooker does it all for you. Simply choose your rice, add the required amount of water, switch on… then go read your book or watch your favourite TV programme, while your rice cooker does the rest. Once your rice is cooked, just let it rest for a few minutes before serving with a proud flourish and a “Look what I made!”
If you’re using a pan, don’t forget to check the required cooking time since this varies depending on the type of rice used. When the water starts to boil, pour in your rice stirring all the time, then leave to cook over a medium heat. You can add a stock cube or some herbs to the cooking water, or scatter some saffron over your rice after draining.
