Jamie Oliver himself remembers food being a huge part of his childhood holidays, with his parents always encouraging him to try new things. ‘It’s not about what you don’t like, it’s about what you could like!’ he says, which is why at his restaurant, there are plenty of fun ways to get kids to try new foods. Take a look at the fresh pasta being made in-house every day, or order some dishes to share so that everyone can try something different. Kids can even get involved in making their own food with the ‘Shake Me’ salad, designed especially for them to shake up just the way they like!

Flash-frozen ice cream tops tender pork belly. Wasabi caviar mingles with spicy tuna cones. Sriracha eggs appear in a plume of smoke.

Throw in a few more great reasons for people to gather, converse and share—like craft beers, including the chef’s own classic American ale, Michael’s Genuine Home Brew. And for those with their sights set beyond hops, a finely curated list of wine, cocktails and spirits, including bourbon whiskey flights, is sure to warm their cheeks.
