Jamie’s Ministry of Food Australia

19 Nov

I am doing a cooking class (yes KB, a cooking class!).

The Jamie Oliver Ministry of Food Cooking course to be exact.

The Jamie’s Ministry of Food mobile truck that has been located in Queen’s Park Toowoomba for the past 13 weeks.  It contains a purpose built, fully equipped kitchen classroom.


The course goes for 5 weeks  (1 x 90 min lesson per week) and only costs $50 (the cost is subsidised by the government).  There are 12 participants per class.

It aims to give as many people as possible the tools and information they need to be able to make better food choices, to help  ensure healthier and happier communities.  The tagline for this course states “Anyone can learn to Cook” – so fingers crossed!!!

The Mobile Kitchen is headed to Nanago next. Check out the website to see if it’s coming your way next year.


If you live in Ipswich or Geelong you don’t have to wait for the truck to visit, you have a permanent centre in your town!

    I saw someone else on FB talking about this tonight! Didn’t realise it came in a truck to your town. That’s pretty awesome
