News: Jamie's Ministry of Food Rotherham gets Bramall cooking


Colleagues at Bramall Construction are tasting the benefits of their involvement in Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food programme, which aired for the final time last night. Fifty staff from the Rotherham-based social housing specialist have been involved in the celebrity chef’s campaign in the town to get people cooking and eating healthily. Bramall’s involvement in the healthy eating campaign started in June when staff attended the ‘pass it on’ mass cookery class at Rotherham’s Magna centre. They were taught to make a stir fry dish and encouraged to share the recipe with at least one other person. Oliver has since visited Bramall’s head office to pass his cooking expertise on to six colleagues in a class which was also broadcast on the Channel 4 show. Staff say the campaign will leave lasting benefits, with many employees now cooking regularly for the first time in their lives. Bramall Construction has invested in a new hob for the canteen in its head office in Wath and Bramall’s PA Natalie Hare said: "People have been brought together for the classes who might not otherwise have met up. We’ve had a variety of people both from site and from the office and we’ve also encouraged new starters to participate. "The responses we have received have been really positive – especially from staff who had never really cooked before. We had a couple of men who had never cooked at home and have since gone home and cooked for their wives."
