I really like Jamie Oliver, both of his shows that I have seen. The people who product his show are the same as produced Two Fat Ladies, thus the England origin. He is cockney and sometimes it is hard to understand him when he talks fast. He is, in my opinion, one of the better chefs on Food TV. I also really like Sara Moulton, Martha. I am tiring fast of Emeril and his bamming trick and seasoning jokes, he is too theatrical. The 30 minute bimbo is an enormous joke to me. I really do not watch the food station much anymore because I do not like most of the new chefs and the ones I like are all in reruns. Too bad. I do keep checking to see what is new, howver.

Yes Ishbel, here in US we speak American, the Queens English is quite another language.

I meant us (lower case).... not US as in USA....!!!

I just think its funny when Americans say that they can't understand our accents... after all, we're talking English, and we think its the Americans that have accents, not us!!!

I was not saying I could not understand you or the us. I grew up in a household of accents and usually have no trouble understanding people who speak with an accent. It is comforting to me. Sorry I misunderstood.

I know what you mean about accents - my family travelled most of my childhood, we lived in the Far East, The Gulf, Cyprus and Germany.... so grew up having constantly to 'retune' our ears to hear accents.

My husband always says that he understands Scots accents best if he cocks his head slightly to one side whilst listening to people here.... it certainly seems to work, but he sometimes gets funny looks from people!

I've got one of his cookbooks and would love to have the rest.

He's got an energy that I really like.
You got that right....he is kind of fun to watch and has great motor skills.

My younger cousins in Norway must have two years of English before they are allowed to study American, two separate languages over there. I have to watch myself when I write and speak to them because our expressions have literal meaning over there; go fly a kite or get lost or go climb a tree means just that.
