  • Seriously, you'd rather have the naked chef [jamieoliver.net]?

    The 2 fat ladies (only 1 fat lady, now alas) used to cook real food designed to keep peasants fat over winter. Tastes fucking great and has lots of fatty goodness. And real meat. Not some pathetic sliver of ham, goddam joints of the stuff. They were a good antidote to modern cooking.

    • Oh God no, I can't stand the Naked Chef -- who, by the way, WEARS CLOTHES. Strike one!

      I literally get woozy watching his show, because of the jerky fake-o vérité camerawork. Strike two!

      Also, there's just something wrong with his accent. I can't put my finger on it, but I practically expect some relevation that he really has a totally RP accent, but years ago got a voice coach to teach him how to sound all authentic and folksy.
      Strike three, he's out!

      Enough with him and his kweezeen, bring on the Two Fat Ladies and their openly crazy and butter-soaked ideas [foodtv.com].

      • ...he cooks pretty good stuff (at least the vegetarian items/versions have been good). And IMO he explains what he's doing very well, unlike Emeril.
      • My big problem with Jamie Oliver (The Naked Chef): his tongue is too big for his mouth. Seriously.

        On the other hand, he's fast enough in the kitchen that he's at least entertaining to watch.
