A good friend of mines is a major foodie. Almost as big of a foodie as I am. With almost anything related to food we can almost always count on the other agreeing or having an opinion. When Joanna of Bumpercrop approached me about Food Revolution Day in Toronto. It was a resounding YES all the way!
What is Food Revolution? It all started with this guy you might know....Mr. Jamie Oliver of Jamie Oliver BBC Naked Chef, Jamie's Ministry of Food, Jamie's Italy series fame etc. etc. etc.
Food Revolution Day is May 19 and its main purpose is:
“My charity aims to inspire people to reconnect with food. It's all about raising awareness and individual responsibility, resuscitating dying food culture around the world and, ultimately, keeping cooking skills alive.”
It was a brilliant day, with some really great people meeting all in the common goal of good food, cooked with love and shared with a good purpose at its heart. To start your own chapter or event visit Jamie's Foundation site.
I think you will agree, there was some really good eats had by all. What a great time with friends new and old.
