With Christmas now just a week away, it is pretty hard to escape the many repeats of Jamie Oliver cooking shows. Being almost inescapable, the cockney celebrity chef is on every channel. From launching new books to appearing of talk shows, Oliver is here, there and everywhere. And, it is no wonder, seeming that he has been behind the wheel of the new Range Rover Evoque!
With so much hype surrounding the launch of the new model, Oliver was no doubt thrilled to be the first to get a taste of this amazing, compact SUV.
According to sources, Jamie Oliver used the second-generation Range Rover Evoque to ferry around London to look for ingredients. These items were put together to create an Indian-inspired bhaji burger; a dish served to guests of Land Rover’s Evoque Experience in Shoreditch.
In addition to facing the challenge of city driving, Oliver also got to test the capabilities of the vehicle on an obstacle course found at Bishopsgate Goods Yard. This involved facing a water trough, ramps, train tracks as well as a swimming pool.
But, this is not the first time Jamie Oliver has teamed up with Land Rover. Back in 2017, they created what was then branded the ‘ultimate kitchen on four wheels’; a customised Discovery fitted with slow cookers, toasters and wheels that churned butter!
He said the following of the new Evoque and its design:
“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.”
Let us know what you think. Does the new Evoque warrant its £50,000 price tag?
