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。

FIFTEEN – http://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

Barbecoa – http://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.
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.
Recipease – http://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 Jack – http://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.
