Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

One of my favorite chef's, Jamie Oliver has a new show! It's Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution on ABC Fridays at 8 p.m. This show is about Jamie trying to educate people starting in the town of Huntington, W.V. This particular town was judged as the most unhealthy town in America based on health statistics.

Sadly, Jamie has had a lot of people in this town resisting his ideas about changing to a healthier lifestyle. He started this revolution by getting to know what the children in their elementary school were served. This was not good. He tried to get the lunch ladies on board with cooking everything from scratch. You can imagine they did not want to make their jobs more difficult. This is Alice,

she's Jamie's nemesis in the lunch room but she can be quite entertaining if you are not Jamie. Another part of the show that I found interesting but sad was the kindergarten class could not name one fresh vegetable shown to them, not one! But the best part was their own teacher took it upon herself to teach them. A week later Jamie was invited in to quiz them and they did a wonderful job.

I can't wait for this week's episode. I saw in the preview where Jamie is showing the town's local DJ (also one of Jamie's nemesis) inside the funeral parlor. There was the largest coffin I've ever seen in that parlor. It looked like a square raft and it was disgusting. I hope Jamie can win this town over.
