Celebrity chefs team up to make the nation eat well
Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver are to join forces as they continue their shared mission to change the eating habits of British people.
Following on from his successful campaign to have turkey twizzlers taken off school menus, Oliver is set to turn his attention to the world of chicken production in his new Channel 4 series Jamie’s Fowl Dinners.
Speaking at the launch of the show, which will air at the start of next year, head of factual entertainment at Channel 4 Andrew Mackenzie explained: “Jamie’s simple message will be ‘If you know what happens to a chicken before arriving on your plate, would you change the way you think about chicken?”
In the same fortnight-long season of food-related programmes.
Gordon Ramsay will channel his considerable anger into teaching the nation how to make fast, healthy cuisine in his new show Cook-a-Long-a-Gordon Live.
In addition, hat-wearing anatomist Dr Gunther von Hagens will attempt to lift the winter gloom by highlighting the effects of a poor diet in the show Eat Yourself to Death.
Channel 4’s winter schedule is also set to include a new US sitcom, Back to You, featuring former Fraiser star Kelsey Grammer, as well as a Big Brother spin-off show to be hosted by Dermot O’Leary.
