Curtis Stone Clearly Now An Alpha Chef As He Takes A Swipe At Jamie Oliver
Curtis Stone is obviously feeling like he is one of the alpha chef’s at the moment as he has a swipe at Jamie Oliver for being overweight.
Curtis Stone who now lives in the US and is host of Top Chef Masters and a judge on America’s Next Top Restaurant, was happy to give his opinion about the fracas Jamie Oliver had with a journalist here.
When the journalist suggested he might be being hypocritical about people watching their weight because he was a bit chubby, he called her a bitch.
The Herald Sun reports that Curtis said on a talk show that Jamie needs to show more responsibility.
While co-hosting The Talk on Friday, Stone criticised the Brit for calling an Australian journalist “a bitch” when she questioned his weight during a visit last week.
The Aussie-born chef says Oliver should show more responsibility.
“The interesting part of this for me is that Jamie is a big voice and he preaches, you know his show is called The Food Revolution,” Curtis said.
“So, he’s there talking about healthy food and you’ve got to practise what you preach.
“I love Jamie. I think he’s a great guy. I think what he stands for is really important.
“We’ve all had different relationships with food – some great, some not so great. But when you’ve got a place in the TV world of responsibility, you’ve got to follow through.”
What do you think? Does Jamie Oliver have to stay in tip top shape to be able to get his message of healthy eating to the masses?
Jamie Oliver also filmed an episode of Masterchef Australia when he was here.
