Feast Your Eyes: Video Tour of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Truck

Jamie Oliver has unveiled his brand-new Food Revolution truck, complete with 8 kitchen stations and an inflatable stage.



Yesterday, as part of an update on his 2010 TED wish at this year's conference, Jamie Oliver unveiled his new Food Revolution Truck—click on the video above for a guided tour.

Designed by David Rockwell, who is known for his theatrical, over-the-top Vegas interiors as well as the set for the 2010 Academy Awards, the truck features several plasma screens, eight fully-functional kitchen stations, and an inflatable stage. It can fit a class of 40 students, as well the obligatory camera crew, and will be used for classes, demonstrations, and events that will teach children and their parents how to prepare affordable, nutritious meals.

Given that Oliver's bricks-and-mortar Food Revolution kitchen in Los Angeles is located in the wealthy neighborhood of Westwood, the truck is an essential part of his plan to bring the Food Revolution to underserved communities such as South L.A., Boyle Heights, Long Beach, and Santa Ana.

As part of the same presentation, Jamie Oliver and the American Heart Association also announced the formation of a partnership to open five more Food Revolution Kitchens within the next 18 months, in New York, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Dallas.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin mocked the teenager on Thursday during a press briefing in Davos.

Even though marathon running is on the decline, half a million people signed up to participate in the 2020 London Marathon. It seems wild that someone would voluntarily sign up to run 26.2 miles, but those half a million people might actually be on to something. A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that running a marathon can help reverse signs of aging.

Researchers at Barts and University College London looked at 138 first-time marathon runners between the ages of 21 and 69. "We wanted to look at novice athletes. We didn't include people who said they ran for more than two hours a week," Dr. Charlotte Manisty, the study's senior author and cardiologist at University College London, said per CNN.
