School Kids Find Jamie Oliver's Food Revolting

by Annie Wu, posted Mar 31st 2010 3:01PM
jamie oliverJamie Oliver's 'Food Revolution' is only two episodes in but it has already brought some serious numbers for ABC. Anyone that has been watching the series, though, can tell that the celebrity chef's mission to bring healthy eating habits to Huntington, West Virginia has not been an easy task. Tears have been shed, chicken nuggets have been dumped, lunch ladies have been angered.

For viewers, most of this article from the New York Post is pretty much stating the obvious, saying that a majority of school children are not pleased with the state of things. What is interesting, though, is the rise of brown bag lunches from home (mostly chips and cookies) and some thoughts from the food services director on how the change has been implemented.

Jamie Oliver Getting the Sunday Slot, Acing Out 'Castle'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 11th 2010 7:08PM
'Castle' might be reeling that they aren't scoring the coveted Sunday slot, but at least it's not going to some dreary rerun and maybe even a worthy cause.

'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution,' the reality series in which the famed British chef attempts to spark change in the West Virginia city that the Centers for Disease Control named the unhealthiest in America, will air on Sunday, March 21 in the 10 p.m. slot followed by repeats and new episodes every Friday.

The show mirrors his attempt to revamp the British school food program. This time, it chronicles the chef's attempt to "plant the seed" of change in Huntington, W.V., the same town that scorned his help and drove him to the brink of tears. Here's just a taste of the town's reaction to his offer to help. I'm shocked that the guy in this clip was spitting hamburger crumbs at Jamie as he refused to eat "lettuce".

Oliver and Seacrest try to make Americans eat healthy

by Brad Trechak, posted May 11th 2009 5:06PM
Ryan SeacrestJust what America needed, another celebrity telling us we need to eat better. British chef Jamie Oliver is teaming with Ryan Seacrest to create a reality show on ABC that will give eating "makeovers" to certain sections of the United States.

It's a nice idea, but I doubt it will make a significant impact on this country's eating habits. America is about getting food cheap and fast, so fast food is the nourishment of choice, and I say this as someone who practices awful eating habits. Processed food is inexpensive compared to other types. The best thing anybody can do to make us eat healthier is to somehow make healthy food cheaper (the chain that gets this closest to correct is Subway).

If they keep this "cheap and healthy" formula in mind, I think the Oliver/Seacrest team has a chance of success. The Biggest Loser has personal trainers to help each contestant. We'll see if Americans can succeed without one.

Jamie at Home premieres on Food Network on Saturday, January 12 at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT as part of Food Network's "In the Kitchen" line-up.

The Naked Chef gets animated

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 21st 2007 3:01PM

Jamie OliverJamie Oliver is getting Wallace & Gromit-ized.

Aardman Animations, which produces the Wallace & Gromit cartoons, and Fresh One Productions, Oliver's company, are making a cartoon which will feature the young chef. The series will be titled Little J and will feature the adventures of a 10 year-old Jamie Oliver and how he started to love food and cooking and became a chef.

The show is described as "comically surreal and exciting," and from the picture in the article it certainly looks like it will be heavy on the surreal part. What is that he's holding, a giant broccoli with a face? And I know they don't have the best dental system in Britain, but look at that mouth. Very A Nightmare Before Christmas, mixed with a little Yellow Submarine. Should be fun though.
