Jamie Oliver is doing a coronavirus cooking show

Posted Filed under

It will get underway on Monday…

Jamie Oliver has decided we will need all the help we can get in the midst of the UK’s coronavirus panic-buying lunacy. He’s filming a series that will be on Channel 4 every night next week, and it aims to help people make meals out of stuff they may already have in their cupboards, especially if they’re stuck inside during self-isolation to prevent spreading the virus.

It’s called Keep Cooking And Carry On.

“The show is a direct response to thousands of requests we have been receiving from people who are looking for some inspiration and assurance to help them through this difficult time — and Jamie is a trusted voice to deliver that,” said Zoe Collins, the chief content officer at the Jamie Oliver Group (via Deadline).

Sarah Lazenby, head of formats and features at Channel 4, added “Keep Cooking And Carry On forms part of Channel 4’s response to these unprecedented times. Who better than Jamie to help us all navigate the day to day challenge of eating well and feeding our families?”

The total number of global coronavirus cases has now surpassed 230,000, and over 10,000 people have lost their lives.
