Here's Jamie and Martha Stewart at the taping of her At Martha's Table show on Sirius Satellite, which was the reason the group of us journalists gathered last week in a big glass box to hear them chit chat. But believe me, I was there, at the hem of Jamie's flannel shirt as they were snapping these pictures. And with limited time left, I was asked if I wouldn't mind mind tucking into an elevator car with him to ride down to his waiting chariot — I mean SUV — and ask him one question. No problem.
You know how much we love his cookbooks: we are quick to review them, including his latest, Jamie at Home. Even if he weren't a save-the-world genius, I'd still love him for his consistently downright brilliant recipes. But the catch is, he is saving the world, one meal at a time. And that's what we hope to be doing too with The Kitchn.
So I asked him, is this a tall order? Turns out we agree: maybe, but he said you have to go with your skills and your passions, and in his cafe, those are both cooking. So there you go: there are at least two of us who think it can be done.
Any others out there? How will you change the world with food?
