  1. Chef Jamie was on Letterman tonight, doing his version of pasta carbonara. They did everything they could do to distract him, and yet he stayed beutifully on point. Even drinking the wine, passing the bottle around, and then drinking from the bottle of cream.

    Both the funniest food segement yet on Letterman and a tribute to a Chef who stood his ground.

      Glad to hear Oliver stood his ground with Letterman and his ‘humor’. I can’t really watch anymore however if I had known Oliver was going to be on I would have.

      When Nigella Lawson was on thing didn’t turn out so well.Glad to hear Oliver stood his ground with Letterman and his ‘humor’. I can’t really watch if I had known Oliver was going to be on I would have.

      The link below refers to her last visit to his show.

    2. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to next week's segment. The only thing I could do w/o is the inclusion of his wife. Nothing against her, but my focus is on the locale (Italy) and the flavor of both the food and the people who live there. The scenery--especially in the second episode when we see where Jamie was staying--was breathless. All in all, better than last night Gordon Ramsey's show, where he was concerned with "getting women back into the kitchen to cook." Bleh.

      1. the water on that island that started with an "m" was absolutely gorgeous - a beautiful clear emeral green. The food looked amazing, and I found it funny that a lot of the people at the seafood restaurant wasn't partial to his cooking.

        tell his wife to wear smaller pants that fit (:

          Too funny! My husband made the same remark. I also liked that they didn't sugarcoat the fact that not everyone was partial to his cooking.

        2. Just saw him today at Williams-Sonoma at Time Warner - signing his book - the line had snaked out of the door.

          1. I've already seen a few of the shows and have to say that I really liked them. He loves his subject and that really comes though.

            I’ve meet him professionally and have to say he is a really nice guy. What you see is what you get.
