Does Jamie Oliver Have A Secret Pizza Partner in Phoenix? Yes, He Does -- Never Mind.

Chris Bianco
Well, that was short lived.

The rumor I posted at 10:58 today, that celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is pairing up with a "well-known Valley pizza master," a.k.a. Chris Bianco, has been proven to be true (thanks "Guesty McGuest!") Ah well, at least I got to use the photo of Laurel and Hardy I've been wanting to use -- twice.

According to the Morning Advertiser, Union Jack, the name of Oliver's new restaurant concept, will be headed up by Bianco, who was was made a director of Oliver's new company, Jamie Bianco Ltd.

"Speculation has indicated that Union Jack's will feature traditional British food, but the appointment of award-winning US pizza operator Chris Bianco as a director of the company overseeing the new concept suggests it will have a more modern twist and could feature pizzas made with British produce," the Morning Advertiser reports.

Details to come. I'm goin' back to bed now.

"and could feature pizzas made with British produce"

Oh, dear God, why? I thought Jamie was down with local produce. Having produce flown in from England makes no sense.

james'll be IN England, not here.
