Jamie Oliver Webcast
Monday, September 25, 2006 | posted by Mike
In the past, I have mentioned that (to put it generously), some TV food celebrities and programs do a better job of using technology and the Internet than others do. Dave Lieberman and Alton Brown -- nice sites. Giada De Laurentiis -- not so much. (Shouldn’t she at least have more pictures on there?)
Jamie Oliver will be teaming up with AOL and Penguin Books to make good use of modern technology with a video webcast and chat, dubbed a “Cookcast,” according to an article on Webuser.
The 45-minute event will take place on October 12th at 7:00 p.m. (warning: I’m assuming that is “England time.” I’m too lazy to figure out what time that would be for you. Feel free to look it up yourself).
It appears that the event will be available to all site visitors, but the article states that there will be an added potential treat for AOL subscribers or AOL e-mail account owners:
In the run-up to the webcast, AOL UK is also running a competition to win the chance for a family to join Jamie in his kitchen for the event. The winning family will have a once-in-a-lifetime cooking lesson with Jamie and help him cook the treats he's planning live online. Entry is simply by creating and submitting a short video showing how much you need Jamie's help in the kitchen.Check out the contest and submit your video at www.aol.co.uk/homecookingday.
