Everyone has heard of the loveable, energetic TV chef that is Jamie Oliver. He has become a global phenomenon, as well as being one of the UK's most famous exports - best known for his passionate and hands-on approach to food. Born in 1975 and brought up in Essex, Jamie found his love of cooking whilst working at his parents' pub, before attending the Westminster Catering College and travelling to France. During his stint as sous chef at the River Café, he was spotted on camera whilst a documentary was being filmed about the restaurant. The film makers loved his cheeky manner and warm personality - and 'The Naked Chef' was born.
Jamie is said to have revolutionised TV cooking shows - inspiring people to enjoy being in the kitchen. His programmes are broadcasted in over 100 countries and translated into more than 30 languages. Shows include Jamie's School Dinners, Jamie's Great Italian Escape and Jamie at Home. Similarly, his accompanying cookbooks are bestsellers across the globe. His 2010 book, Jamie's 30 Minute Meals, was the fastest selling non-fiction book since records began. Jamie lives in both London and Essex with his wife Jools and three children.
