Twisted Automotive has supplied Jamie Oliver with a vehicle to help the TV chef navigate Italy for his latest project.
Oliver’s new show ‘Jamie Cooks Italy’, which sees him embark on a new cooking adventure, straight to the heart of Italian cuisine, premiered last week on Channel 4 and episodes will air every Monday at 8.30pm.
As part of the series, Oliver will travel far and wide across Italy behind the wheel of a Twisted Retro Edition, alongside friend and mentor Gennaro Contaldo. Together, they will be picking up tips and showing viewers how they can recreate authentic Italian masterpieces in their own home.
The pair will aim to prove that great Italian food isn’t about Michelin stars, it’s about real home cooking.
Oliver has been a fan of Twisted for a number of years. He said: “I needed a vehicle that wouldn’t let me down. Last time, I headed out in an old camper van and I spent half my time shipping parts out to save it. So, the guys gave me something that would work!
“Me and Gennaro had so much fun travelling around Italy, from the mountains to the beaches, picking up tips, ideas and inspiration along the way.
“We met some incredible characters, and had a good few laughs, too. On the recipe front, I’ve got all occasions covered – fast and slow options, simple dishes for you and a friend, family suppers, weekend treats and epic celebratory feasts.”
Twisted founder and managing director, Charles Fawcett, commented: “Twisted has an eclectic base of customers and followers. We build vehicles for farmers from North Yorkshire and members of royal families in the Far East, and we’re proud to count Jamie as a part of the family now.
“One of the great appeals of this iconic vehicle is its versatility, so it’s no surprise that it looks as at home on the picturesque Mediterranean coast as it does in the muddy fields of Northern England!”
