Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

I adore Jamie Oliver. On my first trip to England in 1998 I saw his show The Naked Chef and I was stuck. I bought his first book, The Naked Chef, before I returned to the US and have followed his career ever since. It's one of my favorite cookbooks, Jamie was the chef who inspired me to cook with lots of fresh herbs. I don't think I'd ever used fresh thyme until I made his Tray Baked Pork Chops with Herbey Potatoes, Parsnips and Pears which is still a staple recipe in my kitchen.

Jamie made waves in the UK trying to promote healthy eating and healthy meals in public schools. His Eat to Save Your Life special is a must watch. You can view it in eight parts on YouTube here. I was really excited to hear about his latest project Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. The show premiers on Friday March 26th on ABC, with a sneak preview on Sunday. He's bringing his healthy food philosophy to the US and I can't wait to hear what he has to say. Will you be watching?


  1. I am also a fan of Jamie Oliver! I just found your blog last week and have really benefitted from reading your entries. I really identify with your point of view, thanks so much for the writings.

  2. Welcome Reesie!!! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I used to watch his show when it was on the Food Network.

    I am not sure if I will watch the show, just because I don't watch too much TV and forget about stuff LOL! (Too much time on the puter....)

  4. Yes, I have a mancrush on Jamie. We are out here in the desert and haven't signed up for satellite TV (yet, but I'm fighting the urge). I think they'll have full episodes online, but we've had bad luck with video streaming even though the internet connection is generally good. Sigh.

  5. Just saw your before photos. You have a lot to be proud of.

    I think it is great that you are writing down what you are learning. It will help out a lot of other people.
