C4 speedily orders Jamie Oliver show
Channel 4 has commissioned a quick-turnaround Jamie Oliver cooking show, designed to help those having to self-isolate to prepare nutritious food using simple ingredients.
Starting on Monday (23 March) Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On will demonstrate how to make the most of store-cupboard staples across all budgets, including making bread dough and pasta from scratch.
Oliver said: "Cooking nutritious meals for yourself and your loved ones has never been more important.
"This show will be packed with easy and delicious recipes that the whole family can enjoy, plus loads of tips, tricks and hacks for simple swaps and ways you can make the recipes work with what you've got.
"Let's big up those store cupboard and freezer faves and hero recipes you can take lots of ways."
Zoe Collins, chief content officer at the Jamie Oliver Group, said: “I’m extremely proud of our team who has responded to this challenge to turn around a brand new series in a matter of days.
“The show is a direct response to thousands of requests we have been receiving from people who are looking for some inspiration and assurance to help them through this difficult time - and Jamie is a trusted voice to deliver that. We intend the show to be uplifting and very, very useful.’
Sam Beddoes is executive producer; Katie Millard is the series producer for Jamie Oliver Productions.
