Jamie Oliver using his Emmy Award as a kitchen utensil
HollywoodNews.com: Jamie Oliver has revealed that he has found a new use for his Emmy Award – as a kitchen utensil.
The Naked Chef posted a hilarious video on his website showing him chopping vegetables and crushing garlic with the trophy. He also transformed it into a makeshift fruit bowl by balancing apples and tomatoes on top.
“I never thought I’d get one of these. It’s going to go to really good use. I’m going to use it in all of my cooking shows,” he joked.
“I think what’s nice about it is it’s above and beyond a fruit bowl. It looks good, it’s contemporary, you can sit it on a table, you can put a candle in it. It’s just great.”
Oliver, 35, topped the Outstanding Reality Program category at the Emmy Awards for his TV series ‘Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.’
The show saw the British cook trying to introduce healthy eating and curb obesity in Huntington, West Virginia – statistically one of the unhealthiest cities in the United States.
But as well as describing the win as a “beautiful pat on the back”, Oliver said he had found a practical use for his Emmy. “I’ve got this beautiful new kitchen gadget – it’s brilliant,” he said, using the award to chop vegetables on the kitchen counter.
ABC will be screening a second series of ‘Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution’ later this season, in which the celebrity chef will tackle the obesity problems in Los Angeles.
