獲得2010年TED大獎的Jamie Oliver,則更進一步告訴我們解決的方法。他是一位英國廚師與烹飪推廣家,以原味主廚(The Naked Chef)之名廣為人知,他因擅長使用有機食材,以及幫助改變英國學校的飲食習慣而為人熟悉。

Jamie Oliver被稱作是廚師界的「貝克漢」,他的有名不完全是因為大家知道他會做菜,或是在電視上常看他做菜,而是他除了做菜,對於吃這個議題他總有獨到的眼光。他曾在倫敦開了一間叫做「fifteen」的餐廳找了十五個不會做菜的街頭年輕人,教他們做菜,如今這家餐廳已成為倫敦的頭牌餐廳了,沒訂位別想吃,取消訂位還得交錢作為Cheeky Chops的基金!

而他最轟動的事,就是挑戰英國學童的「垃圾午餐」,經過深入的查訪,他發現英國學童營養午餐只能用「垃圾」二字形容。他上書到唐寧街十號 ─ 英國首相官邸 ─ 為「眾生」請命。並發起了「反垃圾食品運動」,一時之間社會輿論沸沸揚揚,同時又遇上大選年,這件事成了政黨政治攻防的話題,逼得政府採取改善的行動,在學生午餐的經費與菜色上都作了很大的提升。自此他的形象再度更迭,更高一層到了「關心國家人民」的崇高地步,英國的教師聯盟甚至呼籲封他為爵士。

And as much as his cooking is generous, so is his business model — his Fifteen Foundation, for instance, trains young chefs from challenged backgrounds to run four of his restaurants.

Now, Oliver is using his fame and charm to bring attention to the changes that Brits and Americans need to make in their lifestyles and diet. Campaigns such as Jamie’s…
