Jamie Oliver’s food revolution live

Jamie Oliver’s food revolution live

Jamie Oliver is planning a Food Revolution in Australia and he wants everyone to help him.
Join one of the world’s best-loved chefs and food revolutionaries, Jamie Oliver, as he makes his Sydney Opera House debut in the Concert Hall on Sunday 29 March.In an Ideas at the House first, Jamie Oliver will cook live on stage, promising to both entertain and educate about his Food Revolution to inspire everyone – mums, dads, kids and teens – to get back to basics and cook good food from scratch. Getting kids into the kitchen to cook using fresh ingredients is a key part of both Jamie’s Food Revolution and his Opera House shows.

The harsh reality is that our kids are growing up overweight and malnourished from a diet of processed foods and junk. Today’s children will be the first generation ever to live shorter lives than their parents. With less cooking at home and more processed and fast food, Australia has become one of the unhealthiest nations on Earth.

But now it’s time for change.

It’s time to stand up for real food and fight for better food education.

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution is an international movement aiming to fight obesity and diet-related disease with better food education for all. At its heart is a powerful strategy to get people cooking again and keep cooking skills alive.

Jamie Oliver said, “I’ve been working in Australia for 15 years now and recently, through the amazing work of my Ministry of Food Centres and trucks, as well as my partnership with Woolworths, I’ve really got to know and understand the scale of the problem in your beautiful country. You guys have access to such incredible fresh produce but still there are millions of Australians who don’t know how to feed themselves and their families properly. This show is designed to inspire real change so I hope you’ll join me and together we’ll make a real positive difference, while having loads of fun at the same time.”   

Sydney Opera House Head of International Development and Senior Producer of Ideas at the House, Danielle Harvey, said, “Our Ideas at the House audiences love talking about food, health and sustainability. In the last three years, Michael Pollan, Yotam Ottolenghi and Alice Waters have taken to Sydney Opera House stages to share their visions. We are excited to see Jamie Oliver join the roll call to inspire kids and their families to get cooking.”

Obesity and diet-related disease is on the rise in Australia and the statistics are frightening:

  • Obesity has overtaken smoking as the leading cause of premature death and illness
    63% of adults & 26% of children are overweight or obese
    Only 5.5% of adults eat the recommended daily intake of both fruit and vegetables
    Less than 1 in 3 (30%) children aged 5–14 meet the daily fruit and vegetable consumption

Ideas at the House is Sydney Opera House’s talks and ideas program. It presents ideas, conversation and debate from leading thinkers and culture creators. Ideas at the House online extends the reach of live events with unique content.

As well as a year-round program of inspiring events, Ideas at the House features the annual festivals All About Women and the Festival of Dangerous Ideas.
