Jamie has given his full support to a beautiful new cookbook which aims to raise awareness about childhood strokes.
Oliver’s Kitchen Seconds is all about fun cooking for all the family written by the parents of little Oliver Archer who suffered a stroke during childbirth. The cookbook will also raise vital funds for the hospital that cared for Oliver as well as the Stroke Association.
Jamie kindly wrote the foreword to the book and, being a father-of-four himself, knows the importance of early day care with poorly babies.
Ollie’s mum Liz Archer said: “The books are designed to be fun and colourful so children feel they can get involved in the kitchen and learn more about food too. We are extremely grateful to Jamie for writing the book’s foreword and his team for supporting us.”
She added: “Our son Oliver suffered a stroke during birth but luckily he has made a good recovery so far. We made the books as a way of raising funds for two very important causes. The first being the hospital where Oliver and his sister Mia were born and where their neonatal unit took care of Oliver for over a week when he needed special care. The other cause is The Stroke Association who continue to carry out fantastic work. All the profits from making both ‘Oliver’s Kitchen’ and ‘Oliver’s Kitchen – Seconds’ are being donated to these two great charities.”

In his foreword, Jamie says it’s obvious that the book was created by a wonderful and loving family and he also thinks the book is a cracker: “There’s a whole range of recipes in this book that will take you from comfort food and super-naughty, home-baked sweet treats to jams, salads and lots of family favourites….you can tell it’s authentic.”
