Food Revolution Day was a success! We did Farmer’s Market Kids’ Kitchen and Cooking Demos in the morning and then headed over to the Santa Monica Festival to do some more Kids’ Kitchen and Demos.
Great turn out! Great conversation with great people looking to eat better. Get the word out!

So proud of us, Jamie would be too!
Shrimp and Avocado with Marie Rose Sauce (Recipe by Jamie Oliver, Jamie’s Revolution pg. 31)
For Marie Rose sauce:
Classic Tomato Soup (Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution pg. 133)
This soup is so easy to make. It takes maybe half an hour and it’s very good. You can make it by recipe and add cream later. Or cheese, as I’ve done.
So easy, so good, so Autumn! Yumm. :)
Spicy Moroccan Stewed Fish with Couscous (Recipe by Jamie Oliver, Jamie’s Food Revolution pg. 26)
This one goes quick, start to finish; less than 20 minutes.
At Jamie’s Italian for my birthday in London. Prawn linguini with arugula. Delicious.
I’m really glad the food was up to my expectations. I was fully prepared to not like it and have all my ideals of Jamie shattered but damn did Jamie’s Italian deliver. Not to mention, the “World’s Best Olives” really are the world’s best olives!
If you’ve ever had beef wellington, you know that it is one of the more delicious dishes that uses all the “common” ingredients of a typical kitchen. Jamie Oliver’s Beef Wellington goes above and beyond. Whenever I make it, everyone who eats it can’t get enough. Try it and you won’t be disappointed. :)

Listen up everyone! I know I’m slightly late in delivering the most amazing news ever but here goes; Jamie Oliver has been recommissioned to do another series for Food Revolution on ABC! Only this time, he’s coming to L.A!
And who just happens to live in L.A now? Me! It is my goal to get on the crew of this show in order to witness the action first-hand. I have been a fan of Jamie’s since I was 14. Nothing will stand in the way of me getting the chance to work with one of the culinary geniuses of our time.
Watch out L.A! Marina is on a mission.
Macaroni and Cauliflower Cheese Bake (Jamie Oliver in Jamie’s Food Revolution, pg. 49)
This dish is so good and addicting. My family eats the entire thing in practically one go. Yum yum. :)
