Jamie Oliver was leading the way on the revolution front long before Russell Brand became the jester of the political arena. With the election out of the way, Jamie the chef, restaurateur and all-round good bloke is looking to harness Londoners’ leftover political fire with his Food Revolution.

As part of Food Revolution Day this Friday, Oliver had enlisted this year’s Fifteen apprentices to lead 15-minute cookery demonstrations teaching skills such as filleting fish, de-boning chickens, and making fiddly sauces. Alongside the classes, expect loads more free and hands-on activities, from making your own flatbread pizzas to blending a smoothie through pedal power.

Oliver’s Food Revolution has a serious goal though – to increase support for his various campaigns, including a petition to get practical food education back on the school curriculum. So show your support for your foodie comrade by joining in or signing the petition.

This event will take place 10am–3pm at the Market Hall at Borough Market. Entry is free.
