BBC reports on an interview with Jamie Oliver where Jamie criticises the way in which people in the UK don’t like eating well, but prefer to drink too much…
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has criticised the UK for its alcohol culture and poor cuisine.
In an interview with Paris Match magazine, Oliver suggested people in the UK cared more about getting drunk than they did about eating well.
There is a significant minority in the UK who do eat well, like good food, go out of their way to purchase organic and local produce. Though I agree with Jamie there is a substantial majority who are quite happy cooking from frozen bags of prepared food. This same majority rarely eat together and are more likely to eat in front of the television then around the table.
So is Jamie Oliver correct in his view, or are me and him wrong?
