I had long resisted Jamie Oliver -- his shows and his cookbooks.
The whole "Naked Chef" thing irritated me. The fact that he seemed to be trading on his hunkiness annoyed me. Or at least the fact that everybody focused on that made me resistant to him.
(Confession time: I am very, very hard on cute boys. I find it annoying when people get away with stuff based on their charm and looks. It's, of course, ironic and fitting that I gave birth to a son who does exactly that. But that has at least made me more empathetic to the situation.)
But I finally watched the TV show "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" and I'm hooked -- on his unprocessed food. His recipes are great -- and many of them work with my eating plan. So I've been cooking lots of them this week. A full report will be coming.
