Ready, set, cook up a storm with Jamie Oliver's ministry
JAMIE Oliver's Ministry of Food mobile kitchen will soon base itself in Queens Park, Toowoomba, for a series of innovative cooking classes.
The Chronicle was first to report that the world-famous chef's cooking initiative would visit the Garden City.
Today, Toowoomba Regional Council confirmed the visit.
The Ministry of Food will conduct a five-week cooking course for Toowoomba residents built around Jamie Oliver's beliefs about cooking and the associated impact on healthy living.
Mayor Paul Antonio said he expected the concept would generate plenty of interest in the community.
"Council is pleased to support this initiative through The CHANGE Project, which provides a number of programs across the region to assist residents in leading active and healthy lifestyles."
The Mobile Kitchen program offers a five-week cooking course, comprised of one 90-minute cooking class per week with up to 12 participants in each class.
Jamie's Ministry of Food mobile kitchen will be open six days a week, with the hands on classes led by a team of Jamie's Ministry of Food Trainers.
Classes will start on Monday, September 30.
People who want to volunteer for the program need to contact Toowoomba Regional Council on 131 872 or firstname.lastname@example.org by September 2. Classes cost $10 per session and $5 for concession. Bookings open to local residents on August 19 and can be booked through www.jamiesministryoffood.com
