CHANNEL Sevenboss Lewis Martinhas commendedMy Kitchen Rulesstar Pete Evans for his controversial opinions. Pete Evans. A lot of controversy and I thank you for it, Martin, managing director of Channel Seven Melbourne, said at an MKR launch in St Kilda on Monday. I thank you for inspiring conversations in kitchens and dining rooms all over this country. Families are now talking about not only cooking food but the merit of the food they cook, and the food they consume. Evans, who co-hosts MKR with Manu Feildel (together, right) is a popular and polarising figure with outspoken comments about everything from baby broth to activated almonds, calcium, paleo diets, sunscreen and fluoride. But those opinions havent harmed the MKR juggernaut. The first episode of the new season peaked with 2.25 million viewers. Martin also praised guest judges Karen Martini, Guy Grossi and Liz Egan as founders of the food conversation. He added: These people have been talking about food for a long time. Twenty-five years ago, we didnt know much about food. We didnt look at labels. The launch, at The George Ballroom, was attended by Evans, Feildel and VIP guests including Nikki Osborne and Laura Gordon, who star in Sevens Paul Hogan telemovie, Hoges.
