Celebrity chef and food advocate, Jamie Oliver is at it again!  With his motto of

Start with nutritious ingredients and savor the cooking experience

at the forefront of all ventures, his new collaboration with Stanford University Residential & Dining Enterprises Stanford Dining, students have the opportunity to not only learn how to cook flavorful meals, but better understand how to make them healthier without trading flavor. In addition, with an open concept kitchen,  with glass partitions for onlookers to see food as it’s prepared, this will increase the students’ confidence, skill and provide more opportunities to interact with guests.

I wish I was closer to Stanford to take advantage of this unique opportunity. So, I hope if you’re in the surrounding Stanford area you sign up!

Where: Arrillaga Family Dining Commons

When: upcoming Fall 2015
