8) Hi Jamie.
       I've just baked some bread from one of your books, and it's great. I got the original ingredients from Delia Smith, but it's all the same anyway.
        Thanks.

Re: Welcome to the forums!

Hello Jamie,

I had always enjoyed "dabbling" in food preparation but was always intimidated by it.  But when I started watching "Oliver's Twist" I began to understand that even hobbysts like myself should feel comfortable with cooking.

Subsequently, I have four of your books (all great), have a fresh herb box on my back porch and have taken cooking and knife skills classes.

I'm still by no means a gourmet chef...and probably never will be...but thank you for inspiring me to move in that direction.

Brian

Re: Welcome to the forums!

I just want you to know, how much I was impressed about the people in your restaurant in London (fifteen), and of course of the food.
I didn't know that you have such a heart for young people, and give them a chance to do better. And you teach them very well.

But what I most like, is that you give BOZOs like me the encouragement to cook for friends and family. And you explain so much about food and preparation, that it makes it easy to follow. I love it.

Thanks for everything!

Thomas

Re: Welcome to the forums!

Hi Jamie,
         I'm ashamed to say that despite having three children under 11 I have never really been interested in cooking and for the vast majority of the time my children were fed chicken nuggets, chicken burgers and not much fruit and veg.
   I had no real love for veg myself and thanks to being a single parent for the last three years there was never really much money to go and buy what I deemed to be expensive healthy food.
   Then things changed my life and my kids diets. I got a job at my daughters school as a midday supervisor where my mother is the school caterer, around about the time your school dinner show was airing the first time and boy was she mad at you mate!!!
    I live in Surrey and the school meals are provided by the local authority who are fantastic.  For ten years my mum has baked home made bread, prepared the desserts on site and there is always a wide range of alternative puddings like fruit, yogurt and cheese and biscuits.  Every care is taken to make sure the children get a healthy, balanced hot, freshly made meal every day.
   Of course your show went out (which I wasn't watching) and suddenly parents were ringing the school all demanding to know what their children were being fed and my mum went from being your biggest fan to cursing when ever she heard your name.
   I managed to catch your programme when they repeated it and I loved it. It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me speechless. The chicken nuggets in the freezer got fed to the dog and I learnt that if I walk into town on a saturday and go to the market I can get tonnes of fruit and veg for only a tenner.
    The local butcher has reported a massive increase in customers to me since your wonderful series was aired, all of them mothers trying to improve their childrens eating habits. All of them just like me.
    I was never taught to cook but I've realised it's all about imagination and going with the flow and now my children enjoy much healthier meals. As for working in the school, that's taught me that some children are fussy eaters but most of them if you help and encourage them will at least try it. And most of the time much to their surprise, they actually like it.
    So a huge thank you Jamie and I love the site. Keep up the good work and take care of you and yours.
Love Mary  lol x
