All about Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver is the UK's most influential person in the food industry, a children’s health campaigner, chef, restaurateur, and father. Best known for inspiring the world to cook from scratch with his quick, nutritious and delicious recipes, Jamie Oliver has been a household name since he catapulted into the limelight as The Naked Chef in 1999. 

Since then he set up Jamie's Fifteen restaurant in London which trains young people to become chefs, he helped to change school dinners in the UK and revolutionised home cooking. His charity, The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, seeks to improve people's lives through food, while he also lobbies government to tackle what he calls Britain's obesity crisis. Between lobbying goverment, his TV series, business empire, charitable foundation, restaurants and writing his cookbooks, which include the hugely popular 5-Ingredients, 30 Minute Meals and Everyday Super Food, Jamie makes time for his wife and five children. Jamie lives in London and Essex.
