Laguna Beach has its own Jamie Oliver.
Azmin Ghahreman, a chef and the owner of Sapphire Laguna, started a local food revolution long before "The Naked Chef" hit primetime. Three years ago, Ghahreman began visiting schools to educate children about healthy foods and cooking.
A parent of three, Ghahreman said he was inspired to give all children the tools they need to make wiser food choices to ensure better health and a brighter future.
"Child obesity has become a huge problem," he said. "We've all got to do our share in life to touch the community, and my [contribution] is to help our children. They are our future."
Ghahreman added that education is "the most important thing. Once they have this, they will know how to make better choices."
