Jamie Oliver

Have you guys seen the new show, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution? The British chef wants to completely revamp the United States school lunch programs by serving fresh, real foods, instead of fries and chocolate milk. I watched all three episodes on Hulu this past weekend, and the show is amazing and compelling with such a great mission. (Plus, his accent and rumpled hair are completely adorable.)

i'm totally obsessed...love him and what he's trying to do! so necessary!

Paige said...

i adore him and this show! He was also the subject of Gwyneth's latest GOOP newsletter. He really is such a stand up guy and the show is astonishing proof that change NEEDS to happen!

Good for Jamie Oliver - gosh it so appalling what some parents will feed their children. Get up and move America!

Lainey said...

It's a great idea! And he's not bad to look at for a little while ;0)

Emily said...

I am so excited for him and this show!! This is something needs to happen! I also adore his accent ;).

LouBoo said...

Hi - Jamie Oliver is a national treasure to many here in the UK. I heard he was getting alot of resistance in the US, so its great that you like him! He has such a fantastic agenda.

Jen said...

Oh, he's such a cutie, and I agree with you on the accent! I just want to eat HIM up! LOL

I watched my first episode last week, and I'm kinda hooked. I think it's an awesome thing he's doing, especially bringing the kids into it and teaching them to cook and eat healthy. Can't wait to see his progress!

abby said...

I've been watching these on hulu too! I love this show and i can't believe all the problems people have with him trying to help. Food is so important. I hope a revolution comes!

Laken Price said...

I love the show! It just makes me want to go out and fix my own community.

Kristyn said...

I haven't watched this show, but I heard it's great! It's definitely on my To-Watch list!

Michelle Zoppo said...

I love everything about this show! I think its adorable (and justified!) when Jamie Oliver gets all flustered and mad about the sub-par meals kids are eating.

Geezees Custom Canvas Art said...

love him and his adorable accent too!
and i think what he's doing is wonderful.

Deb Oh said...

I've been meaning to check out this show! It's a seriously great mission.

rachel said...

oh i am so excited to watch this - i have been meaning to, but that little clip was pretty powerful. i have been following him for years. can't wait to tune in.

Bess said...

I love the food revolution - it's about time! can you believe that those little kiddos don't know what a tomato or a potato is, yikes!

Bess said...

ps. you have 10,000 followers! congrats ;)

Giovanna said...

I saw the first two and thought they were great. i felt sorry for him that the lunch lady and the radio dj were giving him so much crap...it sucked that he was constantly on the defensive. it didn't even occur to me to go to hulu to watch the third! thanks!

Ms. X said...

I love this show. I watched the one he did in England a few years back, and loved it too. I just wish that the school board in that town would stop blocking him and his progress.

summer said...

yes, yes! you are too right. it's a marvelous show, and jamie makes it that way completely.

JenLynn said...

Never seen the show but the mission sounds fantastic.

Jeanette said...

I think this should be required watching for every parent, heck, everyone period. Perhpas starting in a more receptive area then moving it out from there so it could become common practice. I adore him and his important mission.

Daniella said...

I love this show. I had no idea that kids in the states even had lunch served! I thought they took lunch to school like we do here. Regardless, i'm so happy that Jamie is taking the initiative... it's about time!

SweetPeaknits said...

Jamie is a legend here in the UK. He is both inspirational and proactive and get things moving. He's paid a big contribution to the way our school kids eat here in the UK along with the original dinner lady and unsung hero, Nora Sands.

Lindsay said...

I love Jamie and just adored watching "The Naked Chef" while I was in college. I think what he is doing will help children for years to come!!!

Yankee in England said...

Just read recently that his school dinners program here in the UK has been show to improve test results.

oh, wow! that is so heartbreaking and moving...moved me to tears, really! i hope he gets more positive people and a whole lot more support! can't watch it though..not airing here! dearest greets! ;)

donnie said...

I've been watching the episodes on Hulu too..I'm glad to see some effort to educate the kids and schools on healthy foods. It's hard to believe/watch people have so much resistance to be healthy..

Zel said...

i love him.. he makes cooking look easy and he plays music on his shows. i think this program is great, not just another reality show, you know..

Laura Bradford Kirch said...

Yes, loving his show. The fact that the kids couldn't identify vegetables was astounding. Nutrition needs to be a subject learned early on, not an optional class in college. What could be more fundamental?

Mo said...

I haven't seen it yet but am dying to. I've instructed my mother to watch it, as my nephew is a junk-food fiend and is kind of on the chubby side. My nieces are stick then and then there's him. So I think she's going to watch it and I am hoping she can make some changes since she takes him to school everyday! Hooray you have 10,000 followers!

Barchbo said...

If the food that is served in our lunchrooms appalls any of you, PLEASE volunteer at your local school. The school where I volunteer is largely free and reduced lunch, and they throw SO MUCH HEALTHY FOOD IN THE GARBAGE!
Replacing the food is going to be the first but VERY SMALL step.

Teaching children how to eat better, making healthy choices, modeling healthy eating, and that fast food and chocolate milk aren't smart choices is the majority of the battle. It's a tough one. I've been volunteering at lunchtime for 4 years after teaching for almost a decade, and it's like shouting into a hole. Our real hope is that this generation will learn even one healthy habit that they can pass along to their children. My kids can be forced to make every healthy choice at lunch, but going home to a poverty of food, poverty of choices, poverty of education, and a poverty of maturity is the real crisis.

I am thrilled that this show is sparking such discussion! We CAN save our schoolchildren if we work together!

Elisa Shere said...

I love Jaimie Oliver and am a huge proponent of real foods in our schools, it's really a topic that is close to my heart. I used to work in food marketing and I had clients that represented our U.S. grown food (grains, produce, etc.) and the challenge that we faced in getting our products into the schools is limited staff in the school cafeterias and limited budgets. With one to two "lunch ladies" per large school, all these gals have time to do is microwave some chicken nuggets and put them on a tray. Also, many of them don't have the skills to prepare a healthy lunch. However, there are lots of great programs and schools that are making healthy lunches a priority. I hope with a celebrity chef like Jaimie Oliver bringing attention to this matter, more money will be allocated to school lunch programs. I strongly encourage all of you to get involved in your local schools, volunteer, donate, etc. It's going to take all of us to make some sort of change.

Christine said...

I just started watching it too. I've been obsessed with this type of thing for years so it's nice to see a show about it. I signed his petition on his website too. The government should start holding some of these food companies responsible as well.

Diana Mieczan said...

I live in Europe and he is sooooo popular here. Exactly as you said, the British accent and curly hair thats just a cherry on top of a cupcake full of great ideas :)
Btw: I adore your yesterdays post about colourful snickers :)

Isabella Kiss said...

jaimie is awesome. his accent is the best part :)

Casa Bella said...

Jaime has been my favorite chef for years (I am indeed a foodie). I loved his Food Network show (now off the air...why!!?) where he got veggies of his garden and cooked with them. He's funny, and completely adorable. I'm so glad you posted about him.

hip hip gin gin said...

Oh I love Jamie!! Ever since he was on the Today show and was cooking I don't remember what but someone asked him if he was going to do step xyz and he said "no, I can't be bothered"! Love that, I've been saying it ever since when I'm cooking and someone tells me I'm not doing it the right way. Of course it sounds much cuter when he says it with his adorable accent!

This show is such a great idea, and boy does he have his work cut out for him! I still remember school lunches, they truly were some of the most unhealthy offerings. I don't know how parents today can have any chance of feeding their children healthy foods if they go to school and are given greasy, sugary, salty awfulness.

Claire said...

Love this show even though it angers me so much to see that people don't seem to care that they're killing their own children - at home and institutionally!!! The summer camp I worked at a few years ago was great except that the FOOD was terrible as well. It was the first time I had seen eggs come out of a carton! So glad Jamie got those high school students on his side!

NINA said...

I adore Jamie! And hope people really learn how to eat healthy, specially in schools.
It's a great idea, and he's totally adorable.

rachel thurston said...

Love him. Going to watch those while I edit today. Thanks for reminding me!

Emmie {orange + barrel} said...

I watch it on Hulu too! The information is shocking, especially the girl that already has spots on her liver.

brooke said...

i used to watch one of his cooking shows on PBS or some station back in the day -- he's really moved on up in the world. i havent seen the show yet, thanks for the reminder!

gmafu said...

jamie rules!
he´s one of the most interesting chef in tv.
you´ll love his recipes

NCavillones said...

Love the show! It's a real eye-opener, especially since I was a brown-bagger when I was in school. (Thank goodness...) Unless things change, my kids will be brown-baggers, too!

the Shutter said...

Love him!

Ashley said...

I LOVE his new show! Its awesome! And so appalling at the same time! And he is quite adorable, yes indeed. :)

The French said...

Yes! Love him! And school lunch needs to change. I remember sleeping in history class right after lunch...every day. What's in that stuff???!!! You can also watch the episodes on the ABC website as well. Great show and just at the right time!

Joanna said...

My boyfriend and I have been glued to Hulu--it's great tv! I so applaud and support his efforts at making school lunches healthier and have signed his online petition. Everyone should!

I remember when he was The Naked Chef a decade ago. My, does time fly!

Kristy said...

I adore Jamie. I stumbled across The Naked Chef about 10 years ago when it was still on Food Network and pretty much credit him with my love of food and cooking. I regularly yell at the TV while watching 'Food Revolution,' generally at that guy from the radio station. I can feel my blood pressure going up right now, just thinking about it. I hope enough people are watching the show to start inquiring at their local schools about the food served in the cafeterias. Something definitely needs to change.

holly said...

I have them dvr'd so I can watch them when time permits :-)
Having a brother for a chef and a mother who didn't buy pre-made or packaged anything I feel fortunate enough to have this terrific influence of good, yummy, and healthy food in my life. My 6 year old daughter ordered lentil soup at this organic restaurant last week and you wouldn't believe the thrill from the chef knowing a child was ordering lentil soup? And when she ate every last drop, there were comments from the servers too! Yes, I am happy that I have raised a daughter who claimed salmon and broccoli were her favorite foods in pre-school but it's not by ACCIDENT....If we don't feed our children healthy "adult" foods- they will grow up only eating pizza, nuggets of processed chicken and oodles of noodles. Start with the yummy healthy foods when they're tasting food for the first time....They will develop the love for good food if that's all they know.....We can't rely on the schools to teach our children healthy eating habits, it all begins at HOME. Thank goodness for Jaime and his attempt to make a difference!

Kathy Besser said...

Joanna, I LOVE that you posted this today! I made Jamie's Creamy Aspaagus Soup last night to put on my blog today as a sign of solidarity (dirtandsunshine.posterous.com). It was very easy to make and absolutely delicious. I'll be posting a link to his recipe (and it may be found on his foodrevolution.com website along with the petition, which I encourage everyone to sign). You are to be commended for using your forum to help spread the word... thanks! Kathy Besser

Sara Bentley said...

Must admit... I love cooking shows and Jamie Oliver is one of my favorite celeb chefs! Good for him for using his status and taking this initiative! He can help so many kids get on the right track.

Amy@OldSweetSong said...

I've loved him for years and years and years. He is such cutie patootie. And the new show is great. Do you have any of his cookbooks? I'm a big fan.

chelsea rebecca said...

oh my gosh i love this show!
it broke my heart when everyone was ganging up on him. but he is just awesome. and i'm so proud that he is making a change and starting a food revolution! its incredible!

BARGAIN BEX said...

My family makes it a Friday night routine to watch his show. We love it! Thanks for the post!

Geeta said...

LOVE his show...cannot belive what he is up against!

Ashley said...

I am obsessed with this show! I have told pretty much everyone I know about it. Though we aren't unhealthy or overweight, the first few episodes caused my boyfriend and I to seriously reconsider our eating/cooking habits. Bring on the unprocessed foods!

alicia said...

i'm totally loving what he is doing too, joanna. it's soooo what our country needs. if you haven't already-- check out his "essential family cookbook" (greenish cover with pink lettering). there are so many pictures of him cooking and eating with his sweet baby girls. it's heart-melting, i tell you!

stephanie said...

i am IN LOVE with this show. his passion is so inspiring! i just hate how close-minded some can be, but he just powers through like a true champ. go jamie!

AmandaPants said...

jamie oliver's TED talk led me to obsessively watch any documentary i could get my hands on about the corrupt food system, particularly factory farming. i was inspired to create a blog about better eating ....http://askinnyfoodiesays.blogspot.com/

Emikos Werid Unexplained thoughts said...

i love him ! and his show!!

Rachael Ann Lunghi said...

I ADOREEEE this show! seriously.
i can't believe that people he encounters get so defensive and nationalistic.
it's amazing what he's trying to do!

Dancing Branflake said...

I have such a crush on him! I still call him the Naked Chef. My husband does not find it amusing :)

Emz said...

love everything about this guy.

Loving your blog too!!

iris said...

Sociological Images has an interesting commentary about how this tv show uses fat shaming tactics rather than addressing the real issues (such as why grocery produce costs MORE than McDonald cheeseburgers. Or why there aren't any grocery stores in the inner-city).

http://contexts.org/socimages/2010/04/02/guest-post-save-me-from-myself-skinny-jesus-chef/

You should read that, and maybe watch "Food, Inc" before you decide just how much you love Jamie Oliver's show :)

Whimsy Being said...

This is so great and so necessary. I remember being in highschool and the days that I didn't bring a lunch from home I would buy these one dollar fried burritos from the cafeteria that had zero nutritious substance. In burritos normally you have the rice, the beans, the meat, the guacamole, etc, but this fried burrito was made up of a paste that I couldn't even tell what it's make up was!

Summer said...

The show has been a real eye-opener for me. I found myself asking "Jeez, is it really this bad?". I experienced a culture shock of sorts. I can't believe people would feed their children that crap nor can I imagine that kids wouldn't know a simple thing like the names of vegetables. And all this after having read Michael Pollan's "Omnivore's Dilemma" and having watched Food Inc. I thought I was prepared for what I was going to see, but this show is SHOCKING.

Good for Jamie and hopefully he'll be able to make some changes here in the U.S.

Natalie | The Bobby Pin said...

It is so appalling here what kids eat. I can't believe it!

And yes, Jamie Oliver is super cute. Doesn't hurt

The Price Report said...

I am hooked on the show as well! After watching the movie Food, Inc I am much more aware of the food I eat. I just hope his idea will spark a fire across the nation. At the very least maybe our school systems will acknowledge that french fries may not be the healthiest vegetable to serve to our children.

I love hearing all the British phrases. An hour after the show I am still trying to talk with a British accent.

Let's start a revolution!!

Josie said...

I haven't seen this yet but it looks amazing! Can't wait to start watching :)

Caroline, No. said...

Hrm, I guess I am the lone dissenter here. I love what he does for food (BIG TIME) but he is so annoying! Here in the UK he got teased for being a mockney - posh boy putting on a cockney accent. Do love what he does but find him as annoying as heck! Like an over-exuberant puppy!

ink and post said...

yes! i love jamie oliver too! my bf is british and he got me completely hooked on his shows :)

Melissa Blake said...

my mom reluctantly made me watch this show last weekend! I'm hooked now!! Such a great mission!!

P.S. I'm even having Jamie as Man Candy next week! :)

P.P.S. CONGRATS on 10,000 followers!! xoxo

Lillian Chang said...

Oh gosh, yes, love this.
I've re-watched his TED conference many times, and I'm just so behind his cause. He's doing great things, for sure!!

Laura Wynn said...

Ditto-ing on all the comments, I LOVE Jamie Oliver!! Just so cute, and has such a great mission! I'm inspired!

Giulia said...

But of course, we love him. Have had his cookbooks from the beginning (though I do not get cable...ugh). I've seen the show, & even in the overwrought reality type show that seems to be the only way to get the attention of fellow Americans, it's pretty good. I followed the story back when it was shooting. One problem: many in media, blogs, etc. are laughing at Appalachian folks & it really steams me. Even in fairly skinny DC (yes, look at the stats) & NYC, I see plenty of big ol' behinds & bad eating.

As Jamie & others, including your own doctor probably) point out ...it matters not if you are thin or normal weight. If you eat junk, garbage, you will get sick even if you don't gain the weight. Some of the unhealthiest people I know are in normal weight range.

Monica from Hola!design said...

I've heard about him! I'l check out his show!

Giulia said...

BTW, Jamie is on Twitter & is asking people for signatures on a petition....go there or to his website. And why he's not on some dumb show on those awful food networks (do I sound annoyed? My sister is a chef & she swears Food Network has destroyed her life's work...people, it's NOT entertainment). OK. phew. Anyway, I saw someone wrote: what's wrong with people? the resistance? I really emphasize the following: many people (including readers here) are laughing & making fun of folks in that part of the country. They have been the source of much joking & nasty comments forever. You'd be defensive too if you were poor, didn't have much (or any) access to decent, wholesome, and AFFORDABLE food, & people shove your face in it. Jamie isn't doing that & that's why eventually the folks in the town accepted him.

End of rant.

simplysandi said...

I did finally catch up on his show over the weekend. I love it. I love him.

Post Grad Hair Cut said...

I agree. It is amazing to see the change that is happening in just the first three episodes, especially considering the resistance he has received. I was totally shocked when he went into the grade on class and they didn't even know what a potato was.

Marisa Midori said...

Fantastic show! Also loved his TED talk about the subject, so compelling. I couldn't believe last week's episode where they showed how french fries counted as a vegetable!

Cassandra Marie said...

My friend was telling me about this show, although I haven't gotten around to actually watching it myself. It does sound really cool though!

DailyDivaDish said...

I saw part of his show a few days ago. Loved it! And you're right - he's a cutie.
XO Piper

Amanda said...

I need to hulu this STAT! I'm so glad somebody is out and speaking about this. I hope this project really expands and we start seeing some reform in school meals. I used to bypass the food all together when I was in high school. At 16 I even knew that hamburgers and cardboard pizza were unacceptable.

Lynn said...

I am so enjoying this show! I can't wait to see if the people who are really resistant to his ideas come around. Plus, he is quite a cutie.

Emma said...

I'm so glad he's made the move to the states. He's huge here in the Uk, and he's changed our school dinners for the better!

that's what she said said...

I think this is SUCH a great idea, and I love the show.

And I also love J.O. I've pretty much decided it's just my destiny to marry a guy with an English (or Irish, or Scottish...) accent.

Yep. Destiny. :o)

Laura Downs said...

I think he's doing a really great thing. I watched the UK version of the show and loved it. I'm glad to see there has been good results and hopefully he can bring about change here in North America.

I almost cried during the last episode when the kids came out to speak after the meal. It's very sad that young kids have to go through these things. Something needs to be done to change the situation. Good job Jamie!

And congrats on 10,000 followers! Love your blog so much!

.mck said...

i love it! thanks for sharing =)

hana said...

i love it too. i am a teacher, so it hits close to home. and in response to some of the commenters, yes, healthy eating habits should start at home. but, for MANY children their only meal comes from school. even though there may not be that support at home {for a variety of reasons} every child still has the right to healthy, high-quality food.

will you post a link for your readers to sign his petition? thanks, joanna!

Ana Patricia said...

I saw the premier and was so amazed at his courage and people's reactions!! Why do some resist embracing healthier habits for their kids? what an amazing mission he's taken on

13bees said...

gwyneth did a great interview with him on GOOP last week - dig it up if you can. recipes included!

{lovely little things} said...

I truly hope he makes a difference, many of the AMericans he encounters on the show are such skeptics (like the lunch lady). Just get on board, it's good for your children!!

Sara said...

I caught up this weekend too...it's my new favorite show. LOVED the high school kids. and Alice and Rhonda...geez! Can't wait to see more :)

AlliJean said...

I'm in love with the show and I've started trying more of Jaime's recipes at home. In the past, I had trouble with the conversions but now he has US versions on his site -everything I've made has turned out great!

I truly support his mission and I hope he's successful.

Enchanted Royals said...

Yes! I am SO thrilled the show is doing so well, especially considering the issues he brings to light (kids not knowing what a tomato is... whaaat???) This is a movement I can surely get behind :)

serendipitylovesnewyork said...

Isn't he fantastic? I work for one of his companies in the UK, Jamie At Home, think tupperware parties but gorgeous kitchen and home products!! He is so passionate about everything he does and I have know idea how he crams everything into his life and still remains so normal and down to earth! I lucky enough to be at a jamie at home event last year and he was there and so inspirational! So pleased you are spreading his good word!
Congratulations on your pregnancy, how did I miss that lol! Claire xx

whitney said...

It broke my heart when that high schooler said her father died of obesity. I am so happy to see that food culture is finally getting the attention it deserves!

Down and Out Chic said...

we watched the two episodes available on hulu the other day and i was incredibly impressed. he's trying to bring to the u.s. something we should have been doing for a long time ourselves. brave for him!

Yay! Glad to see someone else standing up for nutrition in our schools.

Alice Waters has been spearheading this movement for years but it has been slow to gain momentum. Check out the website for the edible schoolyard in my old school district. In addition her foundation has allowed Berkeley Unified to provide a wonderful lunch program serving fruits, salads and balanced meals.

More schools could and should be doing this.

http://www.edibleschoolyard.org

Bridget said...

Yes - I did watch this week's episode and was also amazed at his plight. I'm all about nutrition and health and I think that processed foods should be outlawed!

I can't wait to go back and watch the episodes that I missed.

Court said...

Yeah for Jamie Oliver!! This is such an important issue and shocking to see what kids are fed in school. My mouth dropped when I heard that greasy french fries were considered a vegetable!! Are you kidding me? Our government really needs to take an active position in changing the food guidelines for our schools. This is especially personal to me as I grew up in Huntington and still have family there. The elementary school where alot of this show was shot is definetly a lower income area and most of these kids probably get the bulk of their food from school meals. If their not taught healthy eating habits at school it will never translate as they grow up. I hope that parents choose to get active in their communities and question these "guidelines" that are hurting our children.

fromatopink said...

I LOVE this show! Not only is Jamie just the most adorable thing ever (um, hello British accent) but what he's doing is much needed. I'm behind on an episode or two and can't wait to catch up! :)

Meg Fee said...

i'm so glad you wrote about this--it really is such a great thing he's doing. the most important thing to take away from it all is the emphasis on real foods as the means to health (not calories or things in that realm).

annette said...

Thanks for this. I just watched all the episodes back to back. Loved it! It's amazing what he is trying to accomplish.

Dyche Designs said...

I'm from the UK originally so was familiar with Jamie's cooking style before moving out here to the US. I love his recipies and think the work he's doing over here is amazing.

I almost fell off my chair when the school said that fries counted as a vegetable!!!

Bouff said...

I love this show. Especially his new group of high school ambassadors. It's so breakfast club!

Sarah Bradley said...

I absolutely LOVE the show! I'm hooked and completely agree that America not only needs to change the way children eat their school lunches, but also the way American's eat in general.

kelly ann said...

i love how he is inspiring america. this is the way we're supposed to eat... he's changing these kid's futures and i respect him so much for that. he is fabulous!

Josephine Tale Peddler said...

For years I've loved Jamie and his wife Jools. I think it's so important the work he has been doing in schools. All his shows are fab and his recipes are so doable and tasty. My favourite of his shows is Jamie at Home because I love his gardener and the peek into his weekender and all his lovely recipes. Fab Jamie. xx

the southern hostess said...

I love Jamie and I love this show.

Josephine Tale Peddler said...

Golly, this is how much I love Jamie, I've come back to say something else. I know you are expecting, Jo. Jamie's wife Jools has a great, very pretty book out with lots of fab photos of their daughters, Jamie and their life. It was one of my fave reads when I was pregnant Here's a link
http://www.amazon.com/Diary-Honest-Mum-Jools-Oliver/dp/140130270X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1270601851&sr=8-1

Hope that works! xx

Amanda said...

I've seen previews for this show and even from those I get what an amazingly great thing that man is doing! We need more people like Jamie Oliver!

Suzy said...

Love Love Love him! He is so inspiring. The "Bunny" just brought me another of his cookbooks. I hope he can somehow get Americans to take his message and run with it!

Corinna White Charlton said...

INCREDIBLE! honestly, the most attractive thing about him is his love and concern for children. it is despicable how adults are failing the youth in this nation... all it takes is a little more education in diet and fitness!

SammyJ said...

It's moments like this that I wish I still had cable. I love food and I enjoy Jamie Oliver so this is the perfect combo for me!

Bridget said...

I LOVE HIM.

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

I have two of his cookbooks and his recepies are just fab!

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

Fantastic initiative this show, by the way!

christine grace said...

I agree with others here about his TED talk (http://www.ted.com/talks/jamie_oliver.html). So inspiring and made me want to watch his show! I totally recommend it.

I really hope his show inspires America to reevaluate the food system. It is so corrupt and filled with a bunch of hypocrisy.

erica said...

i'm a huge fan of jamie oliver! i'm actually in london right now and have been dying to try his new restaurant, jamie's italian. i waiting to head back to the states and watch the show.

Rose said...

I'm a Brit and Jamie did a similar thing with school dinners here- it was a massive campaign and got as far as the prime minister commenting. I love Jamie's attitude with these projects and his fifteen projects to train up kids from poor backgrounds to be chefs he really does different things to other chefs. Great guy!

marseille said...

i am completely hooked on this show!

Jen Adair said...

Totally love this show! We have been doing the non processed diet for about 5 months now and are totally obsessed!

Vanessa said...

I adore him and his big, patient heart! The show is really eye-opening - I can hardly believe some of the things that come out of the Director of Food Services' mouth! He's educating a LOT of people and it's about time!

Jessica said...

If you feel inspired by Jamie's campaign, he has created an online petition, promoting healthy food for children, that he will present to the White House. You can find the petition here:
http://www.jamiesfoodrevolution.com/petition. Pass it along!

I've been watching it as well. It really is inspiring. I've been making a lot of his recipes lately from his Food Revolution book. They have all been delicious. Didn't your heart just tear to pieces from the last episode when the bigger girl said that the dr. found spots on her liver and was told she only had about 7 years to live. I cried my eyes out.

Yes, Jamie rocks! He's had a tremendous influence here in the uk on the way we look at food and apart from that he is a lovely down to earth boy! Plus all his recipes WORK!

I couldn't agree more.
Love the show. Huntington, WV is about 30 minutes from my hometown in Ohio. It's unbelievable how negative people can be.

A friend's advertising agency {here in Columbus, OH} is working with Jamie to help. They've designed this site around helping his cause.

You can visit: http://www.jamieoliver.com/
to sign the petition and help!

Go Jamie, go!

I just watched a couple episodes on HULU last night too and was so sad to see the scene where the kids weren't able to identify ANY of those vegetables! ARGHHHHH

Can't wait to see if he's able to accomplish REAL change.

What he and this show are doing is so admirable. I really hope the healthy food fever spreads. Jamie Oliver IS adorable. I used to watch The Naked Chef and drool over both he and the food. I daydreamed of being one of this dinner party guests.

Now I'm completely addicted! He is just fantastic. I just made it thru the first episode; I hate how rude the people are to him! I'm from the South and I definitely know how hard headed Southerners can be. Hope he keeps his head up! I love what he's doing!

I love this show. I'm so happy to see someone using reality tv for a good cause. I work in public health and prevention is key! Seriously, pizza for breakfast?!
Go Jamie Oliver!

Oh yes, who doesn't love Jamie Oliver and his show! I am a big fan right from the beginning and I've used so many recipes from Jamie that I can't even count them. He's the best!

Indieobsessed said...

This show is great. It literally disgusts me at what they serve in these schools. AND Jamie Oliver is just so adorable!

Johanna said...

He's so dreamy. I just watched the first 3 episodes! Wow, what a mess.

Hmmmm, could it be that the seeds for your next passion/career have been planted? Take your lovely, accessable and intelligent writing, combine it with the passion of parenthood, you could partner with Jamie to revolutionize our children's eating!

I love his show!! I actually wrote an article for my school about our under-par food. What a great source of inspiration!

Meg said...

that is so awesome! it is ridiculous the crap they serve at schools - i hope he makes a difference!

Keeping my fingers crossed that his revolution is a success. And in the meantime, a enjoying watching him (after all he's cute, he's got that accent AND he cooks!)

Jamie is my food hero! He is loved here in the UK. We have just finished his American Food Revolution series here and I have to say how shocked I was to see all the resistance put in front of him. That Ronda woman came across as such a jobsworth with her moaning about how a chicken burger and fries satisfies a nutritional balance more that a seven vegetable pasta sauce. I wanted to scream at the television!

It was very touching to see how he changed some peoples lives and their attitude to food. I hope Jamie makes as much of an impact in the States as he has here in the UK

Oh, I sympathize. Omegle My husband and I were working for the same company Omegle Sohbet when I was pregnant, and I can't count how many times I hauled him out of his office out to the parking Omegle Chat lot so I could have a meltdown. (because of course I couldn't do it alone, I had to have a witness and then a hug after...)
I'd much rather have Omegle that than a huge diamond! So much classier. Graham Cluley, omegle a researcher at security firm Sophos, Görüntülü Chat told BBC News that Twitter needs "much tighter control" over what users can put in a tweet to prevent similar problems in the future.
