Brad and Angelina Book Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver for Christmas Dinner 

ABC/BRANDON HICKMAN(NEW YORK) -- There are still some 91 days till Christmas, but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie apparently don't want to wait until the last minute to plan their holiday dinner.  The Sun reports the couple has hired British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to cook their Christmas meal.

A source tells the newspaper, “Jamie has been pals with Brad since he was married to Jennifer Aniston and Ange likes him too.” Jamie will prepare Christmas dinner for the couple and their six kids at their mansion in Surrey, England.

The source says "Brad asked him to do it after he begged Jamie for cookery lessons last year.  Jamie tried to teach him but he’s useless in the kitchen.”

L.A. School District Stops Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Unified School District has ordered that filming of all reality television shows in district schools be halted. LAUSD officials say the decision to halt filming came after bad experiences working with reality shows.

Days before the stop order was issued, the LAUSD refused to grant the food show a license to film in Manual Arts Senior High School. The star chef and the school district became engaged in a standoff, with both parties saying the dispute stemmed from concerns over how the district would be portrayed.

Oliver’s show had been filming in L.A.’s West Adams Preparatory High School for two weeks before the school district pulled the plug, according to the Times. District officials say they were in the dark about the content of Oliver’s show in particular. The show features content aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle, based on changing the ways that Americans eat.
