Tom Kerridge has an exciting new family cooking show with football star and child food poverty campaigner Marcus Rashford. The Manchester United player captured the nation's heart last year when his passionate advocating for free school meals over the school holidays caused a government u-turn on the issue. And he's stayed raising awareness, joining campaigns and putting his weight behind the issue of child food poverty since.
Bringing together Marcus' amazing success in championing the issue, and Tom's chef expertise, the goal is to help families who don't often cook from scratch to learn to cook healthy and cook smart... while having fun.
The project is being backed by the Child Food Poverty Task Force and the pair will be providing families with healthy and affordable recipes to make tight budgets go further.
The pair will be sharing 52 recipes over the course of the year, one a week on Sundays. Tom will be teaching and Marcus will be learning along. The football star himself spoke in the trailer about how he wished he'd got involved in the kitchen more as a child, and the benefits of learning cooking skills early on, so the show is designed for both parents and kids.
Teasing the project earlier in the week, Tom shared a smiling picture of the pair on the pitch, revealing the name of the project ,'Full Time', and the tagline; 'Get cooking with Marcus and Tom.'
When can we expect the project? You don't have long to wait! The first episode is arriving this Sunday on the @fulltimemeals IGTV.
Even if you're a household who almost always cook from scratch, this could be a great way to get the kids better involved with simple dishes they can take the lead on.
