Jamie Oliver’s mobile teaching kitchen is taking to the road this summer, and heading to Crystal Palace in a bid to teach the national how to cook.

The celebrity chef wants to show people, using the joint venture with kitchen applicance company Hotpoint, that cooking from scratch is “fun, quick and good for all the family”.

Teachers from the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation will run daily classes from the kitchen, named the Hotpoint Teaching Kitchen, working with local partners in each location.

The truck will be in Crystal Palace for two weeks, from June 2 to 16, and will be open to people of any age.

There will also be family classes, to encourage parents to cook with their children.

Jamie said: “We’re all busy, but let’s face it we’ve got to eat, and if we can take care of the ones we love by sharing home-cooked, nutritious food, that’s always going to be a bonus.

“That’s why I’m so excited to take out cookery lessons on the road to skill up the nation and get people of all ages to have a go at making some delicious dishes - and have fun while they do it.”
