Young chefs cooked up a storm as they took part in an attempted to break a world record.

Year 5 pupils at Kings Priory School, in Tynemouth, celebrated Food Revolution Day on Friday, May 16, with the attempt.

The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation was attempting to break a Guinness World Record for most participants in a cookery lesson in 24 hours.

Nearly 100 children filled the school cafeteria, Café K, and followed a live stream of Jamie Oliver’s cooking lesson to make Rainbow Wraps – including, among other things, beetroot, carrot and pear, grated by the children then dressed with a ‘Jamie’ special of yoghurt, oil, mustard and vinegar.

Official witnesses to the record breaking attempt made sure that all the children were counted in and that everyone took part all the time.

Their attempt was repeated by hundreds of thousands of children all over the world as part of the largest ever live cooking lesson led by Jamie Oliver.

The day began in Australia, where thousands of children cooked Jamie’s Rainbow Salad wrap, during a 30 minute lesson at Sydney Showground.

Then at 2pm BST, Jamie hosted a live lesson from City Hall in London.

Globally nearly 10,000 schools registered to take part in the biggest cooking lesson.
