What is with everyone ragging on Jamie??
He is a great chef and a totally killer guy. It's good to see a chef on Food Network with a little flavor and a little personality, aside from Giada De Laurentiis and Alton Brown, I think those 3 are about it, and Jamie is the best.
His sense of humor really shows on his shows, you get a feel for the man, and he just seems like a guy that would be a great buddy to have a beer with.
Watch his shows, and figure it out for yourself. Don't just take my word...and don't listen to the others. He is great.
