While shooting his new American TV series in Huntington, WV, Jamie has boldly bet local radio DJ Rod from The Dawg that he can collect 1,000 photos of people cooking any recipe of his.

Help Jamie by sending in a single picture of yourself and the meal you prepared to by Friday 13 November! We’ll be posting as many photos as possible on a large board in Jamie’s Kitchen in Huntington and also on The TV cameras will be shooting the board so your photo might end up in Jamie’s next TV show, “Jamie’s Food Revolution“ which will be airing in the USA on the ABC network in early 2010.

Check out our moblog for images from Huntington:
