British celebrity chef and roving food campaigner Jamie Oliver is set to reveal his “wish to change the world” tonight, live from the TED2010 conference. He has been chosen as the latest recipient of the prestigious TED Prize, with past winners including the likes of U2’s Bono and President Bill Clinton.

The talk is being streamed live on CNN from 8.50 p.m. (EST), and we’d lay a sizable bet on it at least touching on the themes of higher-quality food and ever-expanding waistlines. However, as TED curator Chris Anderson points out in this preview video, Jamie is allowed to wish for anything he wants, even “a hot tub full of models.” But clearly that’s never going to happen: Everyone knows your first wish should always be for a million more wishes.
