Jamie takes over France

Apparently the French are cottoning on to the delights of Jamie Oliver, to the chagrin of their food establishment. I can't say I love watching him on tv (especially the early series with the mad 'yoof' camera work), but his books and recipes are great - easy to understand, stunning photos, and delicious food. And anyone who can convince so many young people to go out and buy real ingredients and try their hand at cooking, rather than sticking a ready meal in the microwave or going for a McDonalds has to be ok in my book.

Speaking of real ingredients, there's a great article in the Guardian about how our TV dinner culture is pushing real food like porridge off the menu in prisons.
