Many parts of the world came together to celebrate good food and better food habits on Food Revolution Day. In London more than 5,000 people turned up to Jamie’s Street Party, which was beamed live around the world by the amazing guys at Food Tube.
Jamie, alongside his friends Gennaro Contaldo, DJ BBQ, Jun Tanaka and others gave cooking demos and hosted the fun.
Celebrity spotters weren’t disappointed either, with comedian Russell Brand, actress Sheridan Smith and presenter Kirsty Allsop among those joining in the fun and helping to raise awareness.
Jamie HQ also hosted the winners of the Prizeo raffle at a private cooking lesson with Jamie in his office kitchen – the winners were Annie French and Robbie Robertson from Perth, Australia who had an amazing time cooking up some fun.
More than a thousand public and private events to raise funds and awareness for the campaign also took place around the globe; from street markets in California to massive dinner parties in Australia.

Jamie said: “I just wanted to give a huge shout out to everyone who helped with Food Revolution Day 2013. There’s an enormous list including all the celebrities who helped with video messages; everyone who came down to the street event in London – big love to Kirstie Allsopp and Victoria Pendleton, to Russell Brand and Ronan Keating and everyone else who made it a day to remember – there were over 5,000 of you during the day which was just incredible. Also big, big thanks to Jermain Defoe who took time out of his busy end-of-season schedule to cook with the kids down at the Ministry of Food over in East London.”
“Also a huge thanks to the team who work tirelessly all year to make these things happen. Here’s to an even bigger one next year.”
