SCHOOLCHILDREN from Portland had a ‘pukka’ time as they took part in the largest ever live cooking session led by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

Six pupils from the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy (IPACA) joined the top chef and restaurateur plus 24 other children from around the UK for the event at City Hall in London which was filmed and streamed live on the internet.

The event was part of the world’s largest ever live cooking lesson. Jamie Oliver led the attempt for the Guinness World Record for most participants in a cookery lesson in 24 hours across multiple venues.

It was the highlight of the global initiative Food Revolution Day.

Globally, almost 10,000 schools registered to take part in the lesson learning how to make ‘rainbow wraps’ – a tortilla sandwich stuffed with cabbage, pear, carrots, beetroot and feta cheese covered in a minty-yoghurt dressing.

Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles was also at the event, providing updates on what was happening around the world. Schools as far afield as the US, Bosnia, Estonia, Greenland, South Africa and Spain joined in.

Jamie Oliver, famous for his catchphrase ‘pukka’, spearheaded a campaign against the use of processed foods in schools.

The IPACA pupils were joined at City Hall by pupils from Altofts Junior School in Wakefield, Ysgol Carno in Powys, St Andrew’s Secondary in Leatherhead, Surrey, and Copmanthorpe Primary, Yorkshire.

Emily Cade, from IPACA, said: “It was great to see Jamie Oliver live and the wrap was really lovely.”
