I often here myself saying that I have one of the best jobs in the world. I work part time for the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and the rest of my time is spent running the UK San Patrignano Association. I get to meet some pretty amazing people and travel to wonderful locations spreading Jamie's message about good food and how it can bring people together.

Rather Have a Flat Screen Than a Green Bean

Let's face it: no matter how green or good it is, almost four quid for a lettuce is just wrong, no matter how many happy slugs have left their slimy trails in its crevices or how much grass-rich cow poo has fertilised the roots. Last week, a certain high-end 'organic' supermarket sold me a cheese at double the price I normally pay for it wholesale for the restaurant.

The Week That Was: A Sense of Opinion

War, twerking, the poor and their big screen TVs... nothing was off the agenda as summer drew to a close. Let us start with the serious. Countries going to war, in their own backyard or further afield, deserve debate. David Cameron may be ruing the day he decided that that debate extended to a free vote in the Commons. However, 'the heir to Blair' (as news organisations, ourselves included, labeled the PM this week), may also be wiping his brow that the anti-war marches Blair himself had to witness, will not haunt his legacy.

Healthy, satisfying and affordable options are simply less available to many families for geographical as well as economic reasons and certainly don't have the power of the food and advertising industry behind them

Jamie Oliver has caused controversy recently. Saying young people should get up and go try working 100 hours a week. The reality is many people would love to just have a job. Let's remember how many people are currently unemployed in our country, it's in the millions.

Jamie Oliver Fights Food Poverty - Will He Win?

I can't wait until Jamie Oliver's new 'Money Saving Meals' is broadcast. Everywhere I turn, it is Great British Budget Menus, frugal blogs and rising food prices. Jamie's tasked himself to improve the situation and he's already created massive interest with his controversial, honest and upfront comments on food poverty

Jamie's Right - Youngsters Need to Toughen Up

Charlie Mullins | Posted 28.10.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Charlie Mullins

What Jamie is actually saying is that people with the gumption to come from far away to make a better life for themselves are tougher than those Brits who have been showered with state handouts for most of their lives. For me, it's a no brainer - a hungry man will always be tougher than one living off the fat of the land.

Jamie is so hands-on, it's his baby and he loves it; and he really loves getting creative and pushing the boundaries of food broadcasting; I can say that I haven't had this much fun making programmes in a very long time.

And You Thought Meatless Monday Was Just for Hippies

Global warming isn't the fictional bogey man many once thought it to be and its effects go way beyond marooning polar bears on melting icebergs. The methane (noisily) produced by livestock is 20 times more deleterious as a greenhouse gas than C02, which makes meat production the second most damaging source of greenhouse gases in the world.

Under Labour, High Food Standards Will Apply in All Schools

Parents deserve a guarantee that school food will be high quality, and for those children and young people for whom their free school meal may be the only proper meal they get, we owe it to them to ensure that that meal is a good one. That's why Labour, along with Jamie Oliver and a number of other campaigners, has consistently called for our school food standards to apply to all schools once again.

What About Skinny People?

Someone will probably think I'm over reacting, but when you are constantly told day in and day out that you need to put weight on, and people look at you like you purposely starve yourself, it does get irritating; and I'm sure there are larger people out there who feel the same about people staring and talking about them.

My daughter Maisie has been cooking since she was in playgroup. As the editor of the UK's largest food title you might think this is a) no surprise and b) not indicative of the general population. But you'd be wrong.

Hate Nigel Farage? Then Stop Giving Him Free Publicity

I don't say this often, but it's high time that British politics take a page out of Hollywood's playbook: if you don't like something, make a brief - but scathing - offering of condemnation, and then never speak of it again.

The Week That Was: A Harsh Dose of Reality

Political apathy is at unheard of levels and a solution is desperately needed. As we commence the stop-start road to the next election, the leading parties are lurching towards their particular ends of the political spectrum. This is a desperate attempt to appease their core voters, which will probably end up losing everyone else along the way. Ukip might be flavour of the month, or at least in England, but at least they're getting the population fired up about politics again.
