Speaking of the politics of TV chefs…

Here is an article from the Times (early 2009) about the leanings of several of them. Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall seems to get that food is political; the others, not so much.

Emotional eating

I’m particularly bummed about the loss of Ted Kennedy’s Massachusetts senate seat to a Republican, which will almost certainly mean the death of health care reform legislation in the US. A vision of Delia’s squidgy chocolate roll passed before my eyes in a TV trailer the other night, and it’s what I’m tempted to make to soothe my wounds. But I probably won’t (not a model of healthfulness, and something tells me she has the wrong politics).

So what would you make to feel better, to encourage healthy eating worldwide, and to move on?
