Jamie’s Ministry of Food West Australian mobile kitchen is heading to Mount Lawley to teach people Jamie Oliver's hints, tips and basic home cooking skills to encourage people to cook from scratch.
Jamie’s Ministry of Food West Australian mobile kitchen is heading to Mount Lawley for the first time. The program is delivered by The Good Foundation and supported by Edith Cowan University which provides funding to support the delivery of the program throughout Western Australia.
After successful visits to various West Australian locations the kitchen classroom on wheels will be based at ECU’s Mount Lawley Campus for seven weeks from Wednesday 27th September 2017.
An innovative, community based cooking program, based on Jamie’s beliefs about cooking and the associated impact on healthy living, the program teaches Jamie’s hints, tips and basic home cooking skills in an effort to encourage people to cook from scratch with fresh food. This is of particular importance given that research shows only 1 in 10 of Western Australian residents eat the recommended daily serves of fruit and vegetables and two-thirds of WA adults are now overweight or obese. Following on from this, about one-quarter of all deaths in Australia are the result of diet related disease and one in four people in Australia are currently overweight or obese.
Jamie’s Ministry of Food has been proven to work. A comprehensive evaluation, conducted by Deakin University and University of Melbourne showed that participants who complete the cooking course, gained new cooking skills and food knowledge, were more confident in cooking meals from scratch, purchased and consumed more vegetables and spent less on take away foods.
While in Mount Lawley, Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen will deliver hands-on basic cooking classes led by a team of dedicated Food Trainers who will be supported by local volunteers. The course is open to people aged 12 years and over, looking to learn the basics of cooking while having some fun in the kitchen learning Jamie’s hints, tips and shortcuts.
