True, but his aim was to improve the quality of cooking shows. And he did attend the New England Culinary Institute.

That was not his aim. His aim was to get a cooking show. He was an out of work actor. And it is a matter of opinion whether or not he "improved" the quality of any cooking shows, incuding his own.....

True, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Ha! That's what they are calling it? It was built beside the Ohio river, there isn't anything remotely close to a mountain anywhere near Huntington. Blue collar would have been a better description decades ago, it's more of a college town than anything now.

Jamie's Food Revolution

I was surprised when the six-year-old students didn't recognize any vegetables. Their teacher then taught them to recognize veggies. Good for her. That's a start.

Those elementary school cafeteria ladies were sure set in their ways.

It's a real shame that our public schools don't provide nutritious meals for the students. Nutrition needs to be taught in class to all grade levels.

I was only half surprised that the children couldn't identify vegetables. I find that frequently the cashier at the grocery store has to ask me "What is this?" when she rings up my produce. If it's packaged and barcoded, they do fine, but if the veggies are loose, half of them get stuck!

I like Jamie, always have, but I saw him yesterday on Oprah and I wish he would clean up, for pete sake!! He's visually "dirty" to me and that's sure not appetizing for anyone. Uck......that hair!!
That said, I think he's right on the mark with this Food Revolution thing, and wish him, not to mention us, the best of luck.

I actually wasn't surprised at all about the kids not knowing their vegetables.

I love it when the checker asks what is this and what do ou do with it. Makes me want to say mop the floor I don't but the urge is there. I just tell them how I plan to fix it and usually get wither a oh that sounds good or a blank stare...

have always disliked him. now you have told me why. you are right. he is dirty and seems to be proud of it. if he wants his message to get out , he needs to be seen in a better light. first impressions do matter.
