Live Jamie Oliver's engagingly smarmy Cockney patois and his unbridled enthusiasm for great food done well would be enough to make this not-even-thirty-year-old chef a success. But on top of that, he can cook. With a number of best-selling cookbooks and television shows, Oliver (a.k.a. the Naked Chef) now takes his show on the road in a special culinary concert captured live at London's Hammersmith Apollo. It's truly a spectacle to behold, with lots of wit, audience participation, and a no-holds-barred performance by Oliver. DVD extras include on-screen recipe cards, an exclusive interview with Oliver, and his short (he was born in '75, after all) but illustrious biography.
Jamie Oliver is out in the United States making his next series, for American TV, on ABC. It's set in Huntington, West Virginia, which has been called the unhealthiest city in America. But Huntington has the same kind of problems with bad health, obesity and diet that people have all over the United States, and back home in the UK.
