JDRF celebrity cookalong with dad of a T1 chef Jason Atherton

Get your pots and pans ready and join JDRF for a free virtual celebrity cookalong. Celebrity chef and Saturday Kitchen regular, Jason Atherton, will be making a Ratatouille on Friday, 29 May at 6:30pm. Head to Jason’s Instagram TV page to follow along, cook up a storm and help to raise awareness of Type 1 diabetes. 

Atherton says “every minute really does count” when recognising the symptoms of type 1 diabetes, after his daughter, Keziah, was admitted to intensive care and diagnosed with the condition at the age of 13. 

Earlier this month, the charity held its first celebrity ‘Quiz2Cure’. Along with brain-twisting fun, the event also raised over £10,000 to support Type 1 research. The next quiz will take place on Friday, 5 June at 7.30pm.
