[遊記] 倫敦自助遊 – Jamie Oliver的餐廳和烹飪理念

Jamie Oliver Italian餐廳在英國不少城市都有。2013年也會在新加坡和澳洲開亞洲區的第一家分店

Jamie Oliver Italian餐廳在英國不少城市都有。2013年也會在新加坡和澳洲開亞洲區的第一家分店

第一次見到Jamie Oliver,是在書店看到他的烹飪書。我被他那一種很懶洋洋,很和藹的外表吸引著。他那麼年青就這樣有名,為甚麼呢,他煮的食物真的這樣特別和美味嗎?及後看他的電視節目,他用一種很隨意的風格,把烹飪這門高深的技藝帶進平民伯姓的家,讓每個人都覺得自己也可以跟著Jamie的方法煮出可口的美食,這也是他的理念之一,讓美食普及,最新的著作Jamie 30 mins meal特輯和書就是針對忙碌的上班族。

我印象最深刻的是看了Jamie的Food Revolution,他要去美國的一個城市讓當地的人正視吃快餐吃垃圾食物的問題,節目一開始是讓他在一所中學學校去對該校的學生所吃的午餐進行改變。他在英國也進行過相似的計劃,而且成功讓政府去正視這個問題,在社會也引起廣泛的討論,不過要在美國成功推行,我相信所遇到的阻力會比在英國更加大,聽說第二輯拍到一半就被禁止拍攝了。這個節目讓我意識到一個人的力量是有可能去改變社會的,過程一定會很困難,不過只要堅持自己的理念,最終必定能看到改變的開始。

另一個理念是他在倫敦打造了一間叫Fifteen的餐廳,每年給十五個在傳統人生道路失意的年青人甚至是犯了事的人一個去學習烹飪的機會。成功畢業的人還會給予支持去開辦他們自己的餐廳。

Jamie可算是新一代的模範,一個很有意志,很有動力,肯去實踐夢想甚至助人實踐夢想的人。

今次去倫敦,我也去了其中一家Jamie’s Italian的餐廳吃飯,食物方面一吃就能感受到用的是新鮮上乘的材料,環境方面也十分舒適,絶對是用心打造的一家餐廳。

先看看食物照片,再上網訂枱,再細味閱讀Jamie Oliver的成名經歷和他的理念。

雖然已經差不多兩點,但這家餐廳還是那麼多人。戶外的位置更要等二十分鐘。那我們就坐在室內的位置好了。侍應帶我們到了二樓,還境不錯,地方寬敞

R0027311

這是Jamie’s Italian的餐牌,第一次來吃就點了一個像Tasting Menu的Jamie’s Proper Italian Feast給我們兩位用,前菜主菜配菜甚麼都有一點 http://www.jamieoliver.com:81/italian/images/uploads/37_restaurant_MENU.pdf

R0027321

點了餐後還以為會先來飲品,怎麼來了兩罐罐頭蕃茄,是我們的頭盤嗎?

R0027336

原來罐頭先用來把我們的Antipasto托起,霖霖也醒來進備開餐了

R0027327

自家釀製的Liberta啤酒,很有味道

R0027326

所有食物一次過上枱,肚子也開始餓起來

R0027328

開胃小食之一,有三種不同的火腿,兩種橄欖,還有辣椒和很大粒的caper berries,caper berries通常都是加在煙三文魚上

R0027329

再來的是蘿蔔絲沙律,有很重的檸檬和薄荷味。還有水牛芝士

R0027330

當然不少得面包Focaccia和芝士,配上一種帶辣味的果醬,味道很有趣

R0027331

自家研製的Polenta Chips,內裡釀了芝士的炸薯仔,不過外層不夠鬆脆

R0027332

還有Spaghetti alla Norma,是西西里的傳統意粉。意粉是新鮮人手差出來的,很有口感,吃下口可以吃得出蕃茄醬的鮮味

R0027333

簡單的risotto primavera,其實就是飯和豆。飯煮得剛好,汁的味道適中,兩樣東西配合得天依無縫,一入口就融化在口腔之中。

R0027334

用上一點pesto和蕃茄烹調的烤雞,十分軟熟,還能吃到烤雞的炭味

R0027335

很滿足的一餐

R0027340

樓下有一些Jamie Oliver的書和烹飪用品賣

R0027341

下次也一定要來,好像不同的Jamie’s Italian的菜單會有點不同,不同季節也會用上不同的材料

R0027587

Explore & Be Inspired。雖然已經吃飽,但經過了還是走進來這家在Greenwich的Jamie’s Italian參觀一下

R0027588

這一家Jamie Italian分兩個門口,一個是餐廳,另一邊是外賣店。很大很新鮮的橄欖

R0027589

還有很多甜點

R0027591

如果有一家開在酒店附近,真的會每一晚也來這裡買回去吃

Jamie Oliver的餐廳:

FIFTEENhttp://www.fifteen.net/

Jamie says: “Fifteen London is my baby – I had a beautiful idea that somehow became a reality in 2002 when we first opened our doors. My intention was really simple: on one hand to create one of London’s finest restaurants and, on the other, to use the magic of cooking to give young people who’ve often faced enormous challenges in their lives, the opportunity to unlock their true talent, through great training and mentoring.

All profits allow Fifteen to use the magic of food to give unemployed young people a chance to have a better future. Fifteen is part of the Better Food Foundation, registered charity number 1094536

Italianhttp://www.jamieoliver.com/italian/

Jamie’s Italian was founded in Oxford just four years ago in 2008. Since then it has grown to more than 30 restaurants worldwide, and there are already plans for even more in towns, counties and countries around the world. But that’s not even half the story…

We’re proud to say that every one of our restaurants is unique – from the daily specials on the blackboard, to the look of the menus, to the design of the restaurants themselves. Whichever one you go to, you’ll always get fresh ingredients and beautiful recipes, all cooked with love and passion. Scroll down to find your local restaurant.

Barbecoahttp://www.barbecoa.com/

BARBECOA IS A CELEBRATION OF TRADITIONAL FIRE-BASED COOKING AND INCREDIBLE INGREDIENTS. FOUNDED BY JAMIE OLIVER, IT’S MUCH MORE THAN A STEAK RESTAURANT. OUR IN-HOUSE BUTCHERS HANDPICK AND PREPARE THE VERY BEST MEAT IN BRITAIN, THEN OUR CHEFS COOK BEAUTIFUL MODERN DISHES USING TEXAS PIT SMOKERS, TANDOORS, FIRE PITS, ROBATA GRILLS AND WOOD-FIRED OVENS. AS YOU SIT AT YOUR TABLE OVERLOOKING ST PAUL’S CATHEDRAL, YOU’LL FEEL THE HEAT, SEE THE FLAMES LICK AND THE SMOKE DRIFT UPWARDS FROM OUR OPEN KITCHEN.

DINERhttp://www.jamieoliversdiner.com/

When this site at Piccadilly Circus came up, I wanted to open a pop-up diner with a menu full of delicious, classic diner comfort food, with great food values and ethics at its heart. That means all our ingredients are sustainable, with an emphasis on British produce. There are plenty of yummy healthy dishes, as well as some naughty ones that I’ve tried my best to keep in check, but every one is guaranteed to make you smile.

Recipeasehttp://www.jamieoliver.com/recipease/

Welcome to Recipease! This is a special project close to my heart. For a long time now, I’ve wanted to create buzzing little community hubs where people can really get involved with food. There’s something for everyone at Recipease. Whether you’re a complete novice or a seasoned pro, you can come here to ask questions, learn new skills, get inspiration and try some really fantastic food.

We’ve sourced incredible ingredients for our dishes. Where we can, we go local to get the best of the season’s fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and fish. For certain ingredients, like our cheeses, you can’t beat going right to the source. For example, our feta is from Greece and our cured meats are from family producers in Italy. They invented the stuff and they know how to do it best.

Union Jackhttp://www.unionjacksrestaurants.com/

UNION JACKS IS ALL ABOUT BRINGING BACK NOSTALGIC BRITISH CLASSICS USING THE BEST ARTISANAL INGREDIENTS. HOPE YOU LOVE IT AS MUCH AS WE DO. JAMIE OLIVER AND CHRIS BIANCO X

After bonding over a shared enthusiasm for beautiful ingredients and cooking in wood-fired ovens, they hatched a plan to work together and the Union Jacks restaurant concept was born. The menu combines Chris’s technical expertise and artisan dough-making with Jamie’s love of top-quality ingredients. We invite you to join us in celebrating Britain’s beautiful food in a whole new way.

Jamie Oliver Biography成名史:

James Trevor “Jamie" Oliver, MBE (born 27 May 1975) is a British chef, restaurateur, media personality, known for his food-focused television shows, cookbooks and more recently his campaign against the use of processed foods in national schools. Jamie has inspired people to spend more time enjoying being in the kitchen – and even start growing their own food!

In 1997, the naked chef debuted.

The Naked Chef (1999 – 2001) was Oliver’s first series. The title was a reference to the simplicity of Oliver’s recipes and has nothing to do with nudity.

In 2000, Oliver became the face of the UK supermarket chain Sainsbury’s

Jamie works with top UK supermarket chain, Sainsbury’s, advising them on how to further improve the quality and variety of supermarket food.

In 2002, Jamie started the FIFTEEN restaurant.

Each year, fifteen young adults who have a disadvantaged background, criminal record or history of drug abuse, are trained in the restaurant business

In 2003, Jamie was awarded the MBE.

In 2004, Jamie launched a national campaign called Feed Me Better (www.feedmebetter.com) and launched an online petition for better school meals.

Jamie’s School Dinners (2005) was a four-part documentary series. Oliver took responsibility for running the kitchen meals in Kidbrooke School, Greenwich, for a year.

In 2008, he launched the restaurant Jamie’s Italian, his very first high-street business venture in Oxford, England.

Jamie’s Ministry of Food (2008) was a four-part series that aired from 30 September to 21 October 2008. Oliver aimed to make the town “the culinary capital of the United Kingdom" and tried to get the town’s inhabitants to learn how to cook fresh food and establish healthy eating as part of daily life.

In 2009, Oliver received the 2010 TED Prize. He also started the restaurant – Recipease.

In 2010, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution (2010) was a series that aired during 2010 and 2011 on ABC in the United States. In the first season, Oliver visited Huntington, West Virginia, statistically one of the unhealthiest cities in the US, to try to improve its residents’ eating habits.

In the same year, Jamie launched the 30 minutes meal program. Moreover, Jamie and renowned American chef Adam Perry Lang opened Barbecoa restaurant at the One New Change development next to St Paul’s Cathedral. The restaurant specialises in traditional cooking methods using wood, charcoal and smoke.
