Jamie Oliver is a funky little monkey! It is the only way I can describe him!
He has charisma, charm and he's a bloody good cook! I love the way he describes his food with images, flow charts and he has a really down to earth approach in demonstrating his cooking.
I mean check out this clip from "The Naked Chef"
He knew at 16 he wanted to become a chef so he went to Westminster Catering College and spend some time cooking in France. He then returned to work as head pastry chef for Antonio Carluccio at The Neal Street Restaurant.
He then worked three years for Ruth Rogers at the River Café where he was spotted for his "cheeky" approach to cooking and "The Naked Chef" was born!
With various campaigns over the last few years to promote healthy eating to our children and his most recent show "Jamie at Home" he is an inspirational chef. The fact he cares about are society is pretty rare so I take my hat off to jamie!
He also made famous the word "Pukka" and I think he looks rather like my partners brother? Don't you think?
I know a lot of people who don't share my views but I would be interested to know what you think?
