Jamie Oliver was born and brought up in the village of
Clavering. His parents ran and still run a pub/restaurant, "The Cricketers", where Jamie used to practice
cooking in the kitchen.
[1]
He was educated at Newport Free Grammar School.
Oliver left school at age sixteen with two GCSE qualifications in Art and Geology.
[2]
and went on to attend
Westminster Kingsway College, formerly Westminster College.
[1][3]
He then earned a City & Guilds National
Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in home economics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Oliver 2/15
Oliver cooking at one of the Scandic
Hotels (2014)
His first job was a pastry chef at Antonio Carluccio's Neal's Yard
restaurant, where he first gained experience with preparing Italian cuisine,
and developed a relationship with his mentor Gennaro Contaldo. Later in
his career, Oliver employed Contaldo to help run his successful collection
of high street restaurants, Jamie's Italian.
[3]
Oliver then moved to The
River Caf, Fulham, as a sous chef.
It was there that he was noticed by the BBC in 1997 after making an
unscripted appearance in a documentary about the restaurant, "Christmas
at the River Cafe".
[4]
That year, his show The Naked Chef debuted and
his cookbook became a number one best-seller in the UK.
[5]
That same
year, Oliver was invited to prepare lunch for then-Prime Minister Tony
Blair at 10 Downing Street.
[5]
In 2000, Oliver became the face of the UK supermarket chain Sainsbury's through an endorsement deal worth
$2 million a year.
[5]
After eleven years the partnership between Oliver & Sainsbury's ended. The final television
advertisement was for Christmas 2011.
[6]
After three series of Naked Chef programmes (The Naked Chef, Return of the Naked Chef and Happy Days with
The Naked Chef) for the BBC, Oliver moved to Channel 4 in the UK where his first series was a documentary,
Jamie's Kitchen which followed the setting up of 15 restaurant in London. The restaurant, in Westland Place,
London, continues to train young adults who have a disadvantaged background for careers in the restaurant
business.
[7]
In 2003, Oliver was awarded an MBE.
[8]
In 2005, Oliver initiated a campaign originally called "Feed Me Better" to move British schoolchildren towards
eating healthy foods and cutting out junk food. As a result, the British government also pledged to address the issue.
Delving into politics to push for changes in nutrition resulted in people voting him as the "Most Inspiring Political
Figure of 2005," according to a Channel 4 News annual viewer poll.
[5]
His emphasis on cooking fresh, nutritious
food continued as he created Jamie's Ministry of Food, a television series where Oliver travelled to inspire
everyday people in Rotherham, Yorkshire, to cook healthy meals. Another television series is Jamie Oliver's Food
Revolution (20102011), where he travelled first to Huntington, West Virginia and then to Los Angeles, California
to change the way Americans eat, and address their dependence on fast food.
[5]
In 2007, threats against Jamie Oliver's charitable foundation "15 Cornwall"
(http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/06/13/cnla_threat) were made by Cornish nationalists.
Oliver's holding company, Jamie Oliver Holdings Ltd., made enough profit for Oliver to have been listed on The
Sunday Times list of richest Britons under 30.
[9][10]
In June 2008 he launched a restaurant called Jamie's Italian, his first high-street business venture, in Oxford,
England.
[11]
Jamie's Italian has proved successful and there are now 35 restaurants in the collection. The brand has
been franchised globally and now includes branches in Dublin, St Petersburg, Singapore, Dubai, Istanbul and Hong
Kong. Dozens more are planned over the next 4 years. In December 2009, Oliver received the 2010 TED
Prize.
[12]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Oliver 3/15
In June 2013, Oliver was inducted into the Culinary Hall of Fame.
[13]
In January 2013, Oliver started the Food Tube digital TV platform as a means to promote new cooking talent. In
June 2014, three of Food Tube's stars - DJ BBQ, KerryAnn Dunlop (one of the original Fifteen apprentices from
2002) and Cupcake Jemma - published their own cookery books through publisher Penguin Books.
Advertising
From 2000, Oliver was the public face of the Sainsbury's supermarket chain in the UK, appearing on television and
radio advertisements and in-store promotional material. The deal earned him an estimated 1.2 million every year
although neither Sainsburys nor Oliver ever discussed the exact figure.
[14]
By 2004, the company had made 65 advertisements with him, but this arrangement has not been without
controversy. Oliver was reported to have admitted that he does not use supermarkets, saying For any chef,
supermarkets are like a factory. I buy from specialist growers, organic suppliers and farmers".
[15]
He was also said
to have been criticised by Sainsbury's CEO Justin King when he slammed the "junk" sold by supermarkets that
ends up in the lunchboxes of millions of children. King reportedly hit back, saying: "Dictating to peopleor
unleashing an expletive-filled tiradeis not the way to get engagement."
[16]
Oliver also markets a line of non-stick pans and cookware for Tefal and has appeared in Australian television
commercials for Yalumba wines, using Del Boy's catchphrase of "Lovely Jubbly".
[17]
In August 2013, Oliver and Canadian supermarket chain Sobeys announced a partnership in improving nation-wide
nutrition and advertising campaigns.
[18]
In October 2013, Oliver also began working with Australian supermarket
chain Woolworths on a series of better nutrition initiatives and advertising campaigns.

telling an unseen questioner, "No way! It's not me, it's the food!"

was raised and subsequently the British Government pledged to
spend 280m on school dinners (spread over three years). Tony
Blair acknowledged that this was a result of Oliver's campaign.
Following the success of the campaign, Oliver was named "Most
Inspiring Political Figure of 2005" in the Channel 4 Political Awards
2006. In episode 2 of Jamie's School Dinners, Oliver's Fifteen
London restaurant was visited by former US President Bill Clinton,

[40]
Controversies
8/28/2014 Jamie Oliver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Oliver 8/15
Jamie Oliver in Toronto 2010
In 2005, Oliver was widely criticised by animal rights groups for slaughtering a fully conscious lamb on his TV
show, while PETA praised Oliver for showing the killing uncensored, claiming that it highlighted problems with the
methods used within slaughterhouses for viewers at home.
[41]
PETA spokesman Sean Gifford said that it "could
turn the more diehard carnivore into a vegetarian". British TV regulator Ofcom reported seven complaints from the
public.
[41]
Oliver has been known for his comments about other chefs and has
spoken out against Marco Pierre White, who has been critical of Oliver
in the past, and the notorious swearing of Gordon Ramsay.
[42]
In 2005, Oliver embarked upon his school dinners campaign to improve
the quality of food fed to pupils. While the campaign was arguably
successful,
[43]
at the time it was a highly controversial shake-up for
students and parents, some of whom believed that the students should
have a healthy option available, but still be given the choice as to what
they want to eat. In September 2006, Rawmarsh Community School,
South Yorkshire, made headlines after a handful of parents including Julie
Critchlow revolted against Oliver's nutritious lunch plan by delivering junk food from local shops to the pupils
through the school fence. One parent dismissed Oliver's food as "disgusting rubbish" and declared, "Food is
cheaper and better at the local takeaways".
[44]
In 2011, Oliver, an advocate of cooking meals from scratch and using local produce, caused controversy after it
turned out the sauces used in Jamie's Italian in Glasgow were from an industrial park almost 400 miles away in
Bicester.
[45]
That same year, Oliver came under fire for lack of food safety protections in his restaurants and
illnesses associated with under-cooking mince meat that may have been contaminated with E. coli.
[46]
In 2014 Oliver's central London butchery Barbecoa was voluntarily closed for 24 hours after hygiene inspectors
gave it the second lowest rating. The Times reported they had found mouse droppings, mouldy carcasses and out-
of-date meat.
[47][48]
Oliver and Gordon Ramsay are spokeschefs for the "Big Fish Fight", which campaigns for sustainable seafood, but
were criticised for their use of endangered fish.
[49]
Charity and campaigning
Oliver conceived and established the Fifteen charity restaurant, where he trained disadvantaged young people to
work in the hospitality industry. Following the success of the original restaurant in London, more Fifteens have
opened around the globe: Fifteen Amsterdam opened in December 2004, Fifteen Cornwall in Newquay in May
2006 and Fifteen Melbourne in September 2006 with Australian friend and fellow chef Tobie Puttock.
[50]
Fifteen
Melbourne has since closed.
Oliver then began a formal campaign to ban unhealthy food in British schools and to get children eating nutritious
food instead. Oliver's efforts to bring radical change to the school meals system, chronicled in the series Jamie's
School Dinners, challenged the junk-food culture by showing schools they could serve healthy, cost-efficient meals
that kids enjoyed eating.
[51]
Jamie's efforts brought the subject of school dinners to the political forefront and
8/28/2014 Jamie Oliver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Oliver 9/15
changed the types of food served in schools.
[52]
In 2012, after supporting Scottish primary school blogger Martha
Payne in her NeverSeconds blog,
[53]
Oliver attacked education secretary Michael Gove for failing to adhere to the
standards agreed to by the previous administration.
Oliver's Ministry of Food campaign began in 2008 with the Channel 4 series of the same name and the opening of
the first Ministry of Food Centre in Rotherham. More MoF Centres have since opened in Bradford, Leeds,
Newcastle/North-East, Stratford (now known as Food Academy) and Alnwick. In addition, and thanks in part to
generous donations from retail chain The Good Guys, Ministry of Food Centres and trucks have opened in
Australia in Ipswich near Brisbane and Geelong, Melbourne. State governments in Australia have also provided
valuable funding for these Centres.
In December 2009, Oliver was awarded the 2010 TED Prize for his campaigns to "create change on both the
individual and governmental levels" in order to "bring attention to the changes that the English, and now Americans,
need to make in their lifestyles and diet."
[12]
In 2010, Oliver joined several other celebrity chefs on the series The Big Fish Fight, in which Oliver and fellow
chefs Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Gordon Ramsay made a variety of programmes to raise awareness about the
discarding of hundreds of thousands of saltwater fish because the fishermen are prohibited from keeping any fish
other than the stated target of the trawl.
[54]
Oliver is a patron of environmental charity Trees for Cities.
[55]
Awards and honours
In June 2003, Oliver was awarded the MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. A proponent of fresh organic foods,
Oliver was named the most influential person in the UK hospitality industry when he topped the inaugural
Caterersearch.com 100 in May 2005.
[56]
The list placed Oliver higher than Sir Francis Mackay, the then-chairman
of the contract catering giant Compass Group, which Oliver had soundly criticised in Jamie's School Dinners. In
2006, Oliver dropped to second on the list behind fellow celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
[57]
In July 2010, Jamie
regained the top spot and has been named as the most powerful and influential person in the UK hospitality industry
once again.
[58]
In 2012, Oliver was honored by Harvard School of Public Health with the Healthy Cup Award for his substantial
achievements in working to end the childhood obesity epidemic and in recognition of his campaigning to provide
schoolchildren in the U.S. and U.K. with whole, freshly cooked food and inspiring millions of people around the
world to become passionate about preparing delicious meals from scratch.The Healthy Cup Award is presented by
Harvard School of Public Healths Nutrition Round Table, a group that helps to bridge the gap between scientific
advances and sustainable changes in food policy, practices, and products, with a focus on obesity, healthy lifestyles,
global nutrition, and chronic diseases. Members include scientific experts, business leaders, restaurateurs, health
educators and health care providers, writers, doctors, philanthropists, and concerned citizens.
In 2013 Oliver was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal College of General Practitioners for his work in
tackling childhood obesity by improving the nutritional value of school dinners.
