He wept on national television when the residents spurned his broccoli croquets and, just like a teenager when their mother finds the porn stash, complained that nobody understood him!
In the end though, he did manage to, with the help of reluctant-turned-plucky school cook Alice, change the school canteen lunch programs, open up a kitchen where residents were are able to learn how to cook, for free, using fresh and seasonal produce, and institute a ‘pay it forward’ attitude towards learning how to cook.

How awesome is that?!
