For me, the heart and soul of real British cooking is food that makes you happy and puts a smile on your face. And that's what I want to share with you- the real essence of British food, done properly.
Jamie Oliver started cooking at his parents' pub, The Cricketers in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight, and has gone on to work with some of the world's top chefs. He founded Fifteen restaurant in London, and the associated charity, Fifteen Foundation, which trains disadvantaged young people to become chefs. There are now Fifteen restaurants in Cornwall, Amsterdam and Melbourne. Jamie has also launched a chain of high-street restaurants in the UK called Jamie's Italian. He writes for publications in the UK and around the world, including his own Jamie Magazine, and he lives in London with his wife and their children.
