“I wish for your help to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

1. Early Life
James Trevor Oliver was Born and raised in Clavering, a small village in Essex (32 km away from Cambridge)
worked in father’s pub in kitchen
then attended in Westminster Kingsway College to learn cooking, earned a City & Guilds NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) in home economics

2. Career
first job: pastry chef at Antonio Carluccio’s (italian food expert) Neal’s Yard restaurant
then moved to The River Café as sous chef
was noticed by BBC IN 1997 after making an unscripted appearance in documentary about the restaurant he worked at (The River Café)
in that year Oliver’s TV show debuted and his cookbook became number one best-seller in UK -> he was invited to prepare lunch for prime minister Tony Blair

3. Two of his 16 Television Shows
• The Naked Chef (1998–1999):
Oliver's first series, title was reference to simplicity of Oliver's recipes -> has nothing to do with nudity
Oliver has frequently admitted that he was not really happy with title, which was devised by producer Patricia Llewellyn (in UK edit of show, opening titles include clip of him telling unseen questioner, "No way! It's not me, it's the food!")
success of the programme led to books Return of the Naked Chef and Happy Days with the Naked Chef
• Jamie's School Dinners (2005):
was a four-part documentary series
Oliver took responsibility for running kitchen meals in Kidbrooke School, Greenwich, for a year
Disgusted by unhealthy food being served to schoolchildren and lack of healthy alternatives on offer, Oliver began campaign to improve the standard of Britain’s school meals
public awareness was raised and subsequently the British Government pledged to spend £280 million on school dinners (spread over three years)
Tony Blair (prime minister) acknowledged: result of Oliver’s campaign ->
Oliver was named "Most Inspiring Political Figure of 2005"

4. School Meal Revolution
in 2004 Oliver brought most significantly his idea to life: he went to school with aim of motivating and educating pupils and dinner ladies to enjoy cooking and eating healthy, nutritious lunches rather than processed foods that they were used to
he launched national campaign Feed Me Better (www.feedmebetter.com), and launched online petition for better school meals, as result of 271,677 signatures on petition, which Jamie took to 10 Downing Street on 30th March 2005, the government pledged extra £280 million to improve standard of school meals, to provide
training for dinner ladies and equipment for schools

5. Jamie Oliver Indspires and Motivates

Jamie ispires and motivates many people of all ages to cook healthy and nuturious! So why don’t you try to cook something by him? Here’s an easy recipe:

The full English:

ingridients (serves two):
6 higher-welfare pork and leek sausages
4 field mushrooms, wiped
2 small tomatoes, scored on top
250g higher-welfare smocked dry cured back bacon
420g baked beans
2 knobs butter
6 free-range eggs, cracked into a bowl and beaten
freshly gound black pepper
sea salt
½ loaf thick sliced bread, for toasting

Preheat the grill to high. Set the oven to its lowest heat and pop 2 plates in it to keep warm. Put the sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes, scored-side up, on to a large grill pan and place under the grill, about 5cm from the heat. Cook for about 10 minutes, turning the sausages once or twice.

Add the bacon and black pudding to the pan and grill for 5 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until they are cooked and crispy. Put the baked beans in a saucepan and warm gently for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Place a non-stick saucepan over a low heat. Melt 1 knob of butter in the pan, add the eggs, season to taste and stir gently until just scrambled. Remove from the heat. Put the bread in the toaster, and arrange the sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes with the bacon, black pudding and beans on the warm plates. When the toast pops up, butter it, then put a slice on each plate and top with scrambled egg. Serve with HP sauce or tomato ketchup on the side, and a pot of tea.
