Twitter Revolution: Cupcakes, Chefs And Cooking

Thu 23 Jun 2011

Story by The Food Revolution Team

The twitter revolution continues and don’t worry, we’ll still be on twitter once the Season 2 is over. The Food Revolution is here to stay! As we near July and think about our summer plans bake sale cupcakes, cooking in your community and local chef champions were on the agenda.

We talked cupcake creations and found that you feel that local chef champions are a great idea and way to improve awareness around the food we eat, where it comes from and gaining confidence in the kitchen. Check out our competition winner below – who receives a signed book from Jamie! - and the best tweets from the party.
