Live chat with Jamie Oliver and Alice Waters today

Published: Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014 - 2:03 pm

Jamie Oliver, the celebrity “Naked Chef” and advocate for kids’ food education, stopped by 14th and K streets this morning to show off his “Big Rig Mobile Kitchen Classroom.” This culinary learning center on wheels will stay parked in Sacramento through early February, mostly at Sacramento Charter High School, where it will host cooking classes for young people and partner with the school’s “Edible Schoolyard” program.

While this morning’s press conference and quick cooking demo from Oliver was a private event, the British-born chef will participate in an online discussion with Alice Waters and others about the importance of food education for young people, developing healthy school meals and more. The event will be held via a Google + Hangout, and you can click here to watch and submit questions for the panel. The discussion kicks off at 4 p.m. PT.

We’ll have more shortly on Oliver’s visit to Sacramento and his “Big Rig Mobile Kitchen Classroom,” so keep checking back.
