Jamie Oliver

I was texted a fantastic new date idea last night which hasn't made it on to the website yet.... Jamie Oliver's new brainwave Recipease in Clapham Junction:

Welcome to Recipease! This is a really special project that I've wanted to create for many years now. It's about opening beautiful food and kitchen emporiums that are able to sit within neighbourhoods and serve people really well. These Recipease shops will be places where you can assemble a brilliant meal in around 10 minutes in our kitchens, using ingredients we've prepped for you ahead of time; pick up a delicious freshly-made meal to go; or attend classes where you'll learn how to make every part of a dish from scratch, no matter what level of cooking you're at.
If anyone has been let me know what it was like, or, even better, submit it as a date directly on to the website:
