This spring, the editor of Jamie Oliver’s website visited the Languedoc to learn about the local food and wine culture. This visit resulted in a flurry of new food and wine videos and posts (and even more wine posts and food posts) on the website (which receives 3.7 million viewers each month!) It’s very exciting to see hundreds of people are already watching the videos just a day or two after they’ve been uploaded.
Jamie’s a big cooking personality and he’s got a dedicated following of unpretentious food lovers. Giving that audience a glimpse into kitchens and wineries in the Languedoc Roussillon is a big boon! So hurrah!
It was a real pleasure showing Danny (the editor) around some of the region’s winemakers and chefs who like to work from scratch and put a lot of love into their work just like Jamie.
Here are a couple of the videos featured on the site:
Jerome Ryon, chef at La Barbacane in l’Hotel de la Cité de Carcassonne
Ryan O’Connell, Liz O’Connell and Ben Darnault talk about wine in the Languedoc Roussillon
