Dear Jamie Oliver

Mr. Oliver,

There’s a fine line between being informative and being “preachy”. I’m fairly certain that cutting into a corpse of an obese man in order to shock viewers into eating “to save a life” is an indication that you’ve crossed that line.

The fact that you’ve recipes out there for hamburgers, Oven-baked rigatoni with wild boar salami, and creme brulee also gives out messages that run contrary to the point you’re trying to make with the corpse cutting. It’s difficult to tell people that there’s a difference between eating healthy and eating well, isn’t it? It requires the ability to present a nuanced argument that states that one can have hamburgers and creme brulee, as long as they don’t over indulge.

But nuanced food television shows are a hard sell, aren’t they?

Good luck with your show!
