He is known for a lot of things. Jamie Oliver is the Naked Chef, has given us a peek at how it is possible to make sumptuous meals in 30 minutes, is one of the biggest culinary celebrities in the UK and US, has advocated for healthier food choices for kids and school, and has won multiple awards and recognitions for his work.
Outside the kitchen and when off-camera, Jamie spends time writing books, traveling and learning new cuisines, pushing for a healthier America, and raising awareness about food culture and keeping cooking skills alive.
He also has his own line of kitchenware. He can be quoted saying: “Having the right kit can make all the difference in the kitchen – my kit should have you set up and cooking for family and friends in no time.” He also partnered with Tefal to come up with high-quality cookware geared towards healthier cooking.
But on top of everything, he is, first and foremost, a chef. In celebration of all his accomplishments in the world of food [and society], here’s a compilation of our favourite recipes by Mr. Jamie Oliver:
