Jamie Oliver - the big debate!

The question is: "Do you love him or hate him?"

Answers and reasons please.

Regards,

Choo

I can't say that I hate him; but he does make me awfully nervous. It's the way the camera work is done - I didn't like "Blair Witch" with that shaky handheld camera thing, and this is what his show reminds me of. I'm spoiled for our American way of cooking and teaching - it want nice and clear and familiar. I can't get into his methods cause he has that tiny little kitchen and I worry more about whether he's gonna be able to get that dish in the oven than what's in it!!

I like the kid, but he makes me nervous! I'm always concerned he'll HURT himself!
My favorite is Emeril live.....It's the one cooking show my hubby will watch with me....he's entertaining, and makes foods the hubby will eat......none of the sissy Martha Stewart stuff! And I swear by Emeril's Essence!

I really like him

I love his show because he cooks in a more rustic way, the way I do. You know, he throws branches of herbs on something and doesn't really measure. I think he's very creative and I don't mind that it's sort of quick-paced. His lisp makes him that much more adorable. I have a friend whose son still has that toddler lisp and the cutest thing he ever said was - now, in the word kitty you have to put a "t" where the "k" goes - Da momma *itty tarries da baby *itty by dea fuh. (The momma kitty carries the baby kitty by their fur) The other one would call me bit-be, and this one would scold him and say - it's not BIT-BE, it's biaaaacky (slow, southern drawl needed here). Now, can you guess my name???? Well, now that I've gone waaaay off topic, I'll move on.

Kitchenelf, Are you sure Jamie has a lisp? I think Jamie is Cockney and they all talk that way. I'm a leftover Beatles fan from the 60's, and when my girlfriends and I fell in love with the Beatles we learned everything British. Jamie uses a Cockney accent that rhymes (kind of like street talk) - did you ever see "To Sir With Love" - this was the same sound. He is a cutie!!

Chooster, You didn't tell us you were from across the pond! I hope you didn't think I was out of my mind for trying to explain Jamie's accent. Was I right about the Cockney or does he really have a lisp. (What DO you call that rhyming thing they do) Where is Sheffield - I have friends who live in Liverpool at The Garth. Give us some chatter about UK - we would love recipes from you. We can chit chat on the other thread; but do fill us in, please. Carol

Maybe he doesn't have a lisp but it's just a little speech impedement thing going on - I think it's cute! Listen to him really close and watch him talk and see what you think.

I like him a lot. His recipes are simple but very interesting -- and usually very good.

I do wish he would wash his hair more often, though.

LOL jen - I also think a good scrubbing would do him wonders!!!!! Like I said somewhere above - I like his rustic way of cooking - should be a very good concept for those people who are afraid to just dive in!!!! Just use good ingredients and toss in!!

Jamie Oliver

LOL! His hair is probably clean.....it's probably just the high humidity in London! That's the way my hair looked the entire week I was there.....just BLAH! But I covered it with a tam! (that's what my granny calls the cloche type hat/cap .....what else would one call the darn thing? ) Perhaps some of his loyal fans could send him caps from all over the world!:D
