The show was commissioned by Channel 4’s Head of Formats and Features Sarah Lazenby and Commissioning Editor Timothy Hancock. Sam Beddoes is an Executive Producer and Katie Millard is the Series Producer for Jamie Oliver Productions. “Keep Cooking and Carry on’ forms part of Channel 4’s response to these unprecedented times," Head of Formats and Features on Channel 4, Sarah Lazenby said. “Who better than Jamie to help us all navigate the day to day challenge of eating well and feeding our families? Sharing his phenomenal skills, he’ll help to inspire and comfort the nation, as he teaches us how to make the most of what we have.“

Channel 4's Jamie Oliver will show easy-to-follow recipes, tips, and hacks specifically tailored for the quarantine period in which we’re living in with so many people staying at home. In “Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On,” Jamie will show viewers how to make kitchen staples and how to be creative with whatever ingredients they’ve got at home, at whichever budget. From ideas for frozen food to recipes drawn entirely from the store-cupboard, Jamie will show home cooks how to make nutritious food using simple ingredients. Jamie will also be showing viewers just how easy it is to make bread dough and pasta from scratch with what they already have to hand.

“Cooking nutritious meals for yourself and your loved ones has never been more important,”  Jamie Oliver said. “This show will be packed with easy and delicious recipes that the whole family can enjoy, plus loads of tips, tricks and hacks for simple swaps and ways you can make the recipes work with what you’ve got.”
