The series will start in mid-October and run weekdays on Channel 4 at 5pm to the end of December, with repeats also scheduled on More 4. Each programme will show the chef cooking a whole meal from scratch.

The creative treatment for the sponsorship idents is being handled by Wieden & Kennedy, Lurpak's ad agency.

The idents will show real people cooking in real kitchens. Two members of the public will be recruited to appear in some of the idents via a competition hosted on the Arla Foods brand's Facebook page.

The deal was negotiated and managed by Maria Donaldson, sponsorship manager at Carat Sponsorship.

Thryth Jarvis, senior brand manager at Lurpak, said: "The Jamie Oliver sponsorship perfectly compliments Lurpak's point of view on championing good food and strengthens our 2010 campaign which has been celebrating the joy that can only come from creating dishes from scratch."

Arla Foods is currently reviewing its pan-European media planning and buying account, held by Carat.
