Jamie Oliver has a new cooking show out this fall (currently only available in the UK) for his new book 30-Minute Meals. This also means a new look for his TV kitchen. Click through for a few more shots of this latest Jamie Oliver kitchen, as well as a few older versions for comparison.
In episode 10 of "Luke Nguyen's Vietnam," the chef and traveler sits down to eat trứng vịt lộn, a duck embryo (also known as balut). He doesn't treat it as exotic, or weird, or Extreme. He just describes it to his viewers, savors it, and moves on. It's this spirit of genuine discovery and appreciation that we love about the Australian chef and his program, which we can't recommend enough. If you're squeamish, don't worry, this isn't really a show about "bizarre" foods; it's about culture and heritage, a passion for Vietnam's people and landscape, and fresh, simple ingredients and recipes.
