A Must Watch: Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish: Teach every child about food

I feel so fortunate to have had people imparting there knowledge and respect of food to me. My grandmother was a tremendous influence on me and the times I had with her in the kitchen molded how I see and enjoy food. My mother too had and still has a wonderful affect on how I think about what goes on my table. Think about what you can share with others who may not have been fortunate enough to have those types of experiences. I wish you well, if you are anything like me this video will make you sad, happy, inspired and probably excited about how you can have a positive impact on your kids, family, friends and community.

Take Care, R.

    Mmm…I think of you often when I grill steak. ;-) Really I think you and the Baggett Clan most influenced my thoughts when it came to the connection between food and family/friends. I always remember lots of smiling faces, cheer and laughter. Stories being spun and memories being shared. Good times.

    Yep, I definitely believe he got his “steak” influence from his dad. His steaks are just “amazing.”

    But his LOVE of food was born out of the LOVE of family. His food is ART! Anyone that has ever tasted his food, can feel the love that’s poured into it.

    I’ve never seen more of a LOVE of food than when I enter my mom-in-law’s home. It’s apparent where he gets his food creativity from…. In a visit, we spend probably 80% of our time at the kitchen table… the “come to Jesus table.” as we call it. It is filled with food from the earth… a daily reminder that food is our life source…

    I laugh now, he’s the designated chef in my family.. his food just makes you feel… LOVED!

    We love some Rob Cook’in!!
