I must admit that I haven’t paid much attention to this Jamie Oliver character, who is the star of “Jamie’s Kitchen” on TLC. I do know that he recently killed a chicken on live television in order to make a point about the welfare of chickens in Britain’s poultry industry.
I also know that some of the recipes in Oliver’s new cookbook, “Jamie’s Italy,” look pretty darn good. As soon as I cracked the book, I saw one for squashed cannellini beans with garlic, which sounded like a quick, easy and delicious topping for crostini or pita wedges. I’ll share that after the jump.
The first person who can tell me the name of Oliver’s London restaurant can have this book and enjoy all the beautiful full-color photographs and illustrations, not to mention the recipes.
Before we part ways for the weekend, I’d like to subject you all to a video that was shot and edited by my co-worker, Evelio Contreras. The star is another co-worker, Pete Dybdahl, who promised to score me one of the free breakfast burritos at McDonald’s this morning. As you’ll see, when the cashier told Pete that he could only get one free burrito because the rules were one per person, Pete thought only of himself.
Oh well, I’m not sure I wanted to eat one anyway.
