Trailer-Made: Jamie Oliver’s Portable Health Lessons for Kids

January 23, 2012
A trailer will travel throughout Southern California to teach kids on healthy cooking.

Jamie Oliver is taking his mission to the streets—or the parking lot, to be exact. The so-called Naked Chef has long been on a quest to help kids swap French toast sticks for apple slices, and now he’s imparting his healthy eating ethos with the Big Rig Teaching Kitchen. At 70 feet long, the trailer —which travels throughout Southern California, and is currently parked in Santa Ana—holds eight cooking stations, six ovens, four sinks and a dishwasher. Local chefs act as teachers, showing kids everything from how to read nutrition labels to how to make simple, wholesome dishes like fruit salad and breakfast tostadas (all recipes are Oliver’s).

The Big Rig, which has taught over 1,000 students to date, is part of Oliver’s Food Revolution, a project of the Jamie Oliver Foundation.
