Jamie's Back on the Food Network!

I'm really excited: the first chef I ever saw on the Food Network is back! Have you ever heard of the Naked Chef? (It's the food that's naked!). Jamie Oliver is a fabulous English Chef. The first time I ever watched the Food Network was while I was watching a Mariner's game with a friend years ago. During a commercial we were flipping through the channels and came across this English guy making bread dough on a counter top. He had the flour in a mound and then created a space in the middle where he added the water, salt, sugar, and yeast, and then mixed it up with his hands. We were hooked. After a couple of years and some different series, Jamie focused on some other things in England (including his family). A month or so ago I saw a commercial for a new Jamie Oliver show on FN! Happy day!

Tonight, Jamie will be battling Iron Chef Mario Batali on Food Network's Iron Chef America. The episode airs at 10pm. (If you missed it, click on the link and you'll find a list of when it airs again---6 more times in the next week!)

Then, at 11pm, Food Network is showing a sneak peek of Jamie's new show, Jamie at Home:

Jamie's back doing what he does best — cooking at home with simple, accessible ingredients, including fruits and vegetables that he recently started growing in his garden kitchen. In each episode, Jamie focuses on a specific ingredient and shows viewers several completely different recipes.
I'm looking forward to it!

Not really! They enough new Emeril Live episodes for 2008 and will continue to show the reruns, plus Essence of Emeril is still going to be on. And, Emeril will be on various specials. Don't worry, Miss Paula! :)

Jamie is a hoot. He gained a fan in me when he turned his toaster on its side and started to melt cheese on toast in it.

You have excellent taste, Lady Jane.
