Jamie Oliver, host of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, is in my kitchen today, talking about his yummy, fast, and simple style of cooking, and his thoughts on providing the best food to everyone.
Why is living organic important to you?
Living organic is a tricky thing. I want people to buy the best they can get access to. Sometimes that’s local, sometimes organic. I want to make sure all people have access to fresh food—and that your government does a better job in making the best food available to everyone in your great country.
What was your favorite food growing up?
My favorite food growing up was definitely my Mum’s Sunday roast. It has all the things I love about cooking—the family around the table, delicious food, easy preparation.
What’s your go-to comfort food right now?
My go-to comfort food is definitely pasta with chilies. I am a chile pepper addict.
What’s the one thing in your kitchen you just couldn’t live without?
I guess it’s my speed peeler. It does all kinds of amazing things, and it’s really cheap.
What magazine, website, book, album, or product are you most obsessed with right now?
I am obsessed with taking pictures with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. I just love it.
What’s the most important news story today that you think we all need to pay more attention to?
We need to pay attention to what is happening with the USDA regulations of the child’s nutrition bill. It’s important stuff.
Where do you get your news?
On my iPhone. English papers, mostly.
