Jamie Oliver’s Stuck Moment as an Ad Libber

October 18, 2011

His stuck moment: In the second season of his reality show “Food Revolution,”  Oliver aimed to revamp school lunches in Los Angeles, but the city revoked the permits necessary to film in its schools. 

He comes up with a game plan: Oliver invited students and parents to bring cafeteria food to his test kitchen. While there, he demonstrated how much sugar is added to the school’s milk every week by filling an L.A. school bus with 57 tons of white sand.

Unstuck result: The school system banned chocolate- and strawberry-flavored milk from their lunchrooms.
