I am looking forward to Jamie Oliver's new book and six-part series, Jamie's American Roadtrip, to be shown on Channel 4 this autumn. The series promises to be more than a straightforward cooking and travel series – as Jamie delves deep into the social issues and diverse cultures of 21st Century America.
A quote from The Times...
'There’s a poignant sense of the link between food and community, between what we eat and who we are. In New York, he ducks past the hot dogs to meet the city’s more recent immigrants: Peruvians making ceviche in illicit backstreet cafes; Egyptians making new versions of traditional flatbreads. In the Deep South, he meets the custodians of soul food. “I used to think soul food was like ‘Funkay!’,” he says, clicking his fingers. “‘It’s got pizzazz, it’s got flay-veur.’ But its heart is so sad'.
Starts 1st September on Channel 4.
