Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver became one of the first people to drive the new Range Rover Evoque, visiting some of his favourite London foodie spots for ingredients to create the city’s best veggie burger.

As part of the global reveal of the new Range Rover Evoque, Jamie navigated London’s busy streets to pick up everything he needed to make his Indian-inspired bhaji burger, which he then cooked for guests at Land Rover’s Evoque Experience.

In a throwback to his Naked Chef days, Jamie visited Brick Lane, stopping at Taj Stores for spices and yoghurt and Beigel Bake to collect bread rolls. Taking a shortcut through Bishopsgate Goods Yard, he put the Range Rover Evoque through its paces, wading through water pools and taking the car across a series of ramps through the tunnels.

Parking in London proved easy as Jamie used the ClearSight Rear View feature to turn the rear-view mirror into an HD screen giving an unrestricted view of what’s behind the vehicle.

I absolutely love this car, it was so much fun to drive on the busy streets of London and through the water trough in the Bishopsgate tunnels. I’ve always loved Land Rover and I had a brilliant time designing my cooking car last year, so when I was asked to come and test out the new Evoque, I jumped at the chance. The fact that Land Rover can create something as versatile as the Discovery and as agile as the Evoque is such a testament to this brilliant British brand.

About Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver is a global phenomenon in food and campaigning. Over a 17-year television and publishing career, he has inspired millions of people to enjoy cooking from scratch and eating fresh, delicious food. His charity, the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, is leading the charge on a global, ongoing Food Revolution, aimed at improving everyone’s health and happiness through food.

Jamie started cooking at his parents’ pub, the Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight. After leaving school he began a career as a chef that took him to the River Café, where he was famously spotted by a television production company and the Naked Chef was born.

In 2001 Jamie left the Naked Chef behind when he set up the first of his Fifteen restaurants in London, then Cornwall and Amsterdam, which was the start of a 15-year journey training disengaged young people for careers in the catering industry. A few years later, he led the call for a change in the quality of school dinners in the UK, resulting in huge changes to the school food system. His Food Foundation works in the UK and abroad to deliver food education programmes at primary, secondary and university level, and to the communities most in need through Jamie’s Ministry of Food centres. Jamie’s national and international campaigns work to revolutionize the way people feed themselves and their families. Every year on Food Revolution Day, the Foundation celebrates successes, and shouts about what needs to improve in the food industry and beyond, in order to galvanize governments and industry to help drive positive change in food education and public health.

Jamie’s successful restaurants include Barbecoa and the Jamie’s Italian collection of restaurants both across the UK and internationally. His wide range of food and non-food products are popular throughout the world.

As well as writing regularly for Jamie magazine, Jamie connects with audiences across multiple digital platforms, creating and appearing in exclusive content for jamieoliver.com, the Jamie Oliver Food Tube network on YouTube and a variety of growing social platforms. He has now published 17 bestselling cookery books, all with accompanying TV shows. Jamie lives in London and Essex with his wife Jools and their children.
