We are holding our 2013 Food Revolution Day event on Saturday May 18 from 12-3 pm on the West Patio at the Whole Foods Pearl St. store in Boulder, Colorado.
Last year, we held a Food Improv event for Food Revolution Day. It was a pretty small affair but great fun. You can read about the event here. This year, we are involving the wider community by teaming up with Whole Foods and the Boulder Valley School District. Whole Foods is generously providing snacks. There will be kid activities and information about Whole Kids (the Whole Foods foundation for improving children's nutrition and wellness) and the wonderful work BVSD continues to do to improve school lunch in Boulder Valley. I'll be there to answer all your cooking questions and get you excited about cooking real food. As the poster says: Cook it. Share it.
For a bit of theater, we'll be holding a "Chopped" competition. I'll be competing against one of the BVSD chefs and someone selected by Whole Foods. We'll have 45 minutes to come up with a delicious dish using a secret market basket selected by Whole Foods. Judges from the Boulder community will taste and declare a winner. Come and cheer me on if you live in the Boulder area. It's going to be great fun!
If you can't make it to Whole Foods to see me cook up something wonderful, enter to win a cooking lesson with Jamie Oliver! I'd enter but I'll be busy cooking at Whole Foods that weekend. But, you can enter and I won't hold it against you if you win. :-) Make a donation to the Food Revolution to enter the drawing; all donations go to support food education in the US. You can enter here and below is the video invitation from the man himself.
