British import Jamie Oliver, who earned the nickname “The Naked Chef” due to his simple ingredients and cooking style, will return to Food Network with a new daytime show, Jamie at Home.
Food will promote the show with a special preview episode Jan. 6 at 10 p.m., following a new edition of The Next Iron Chef in which Oliver is the challenger, facing off against Mario Batali.
The show will move to its normal time slot of Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. beginning Jan. 12, where it will join Food’s “In the Kitchen” programming block.
"Jamie Oliver has always been a Food Network fan favorite, and we are so excited to have a new series that showcases his easily accessible cooking style and his exuberant personality," senior vice president of programming and production Bob Tuschman said in a statement.
