Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Jamie Oliver is not only Britain’s best–loved chef—he just might be the most popular chef in the world. But it’s not just his culinary skills that have made him a household name in both Britain and America. His boyish good looks, infectious enthusiasm, and hip, matey appeal have won him the kind of adulation usually reserved for pop stars. More than a young icon, his dynamic TV series Jamie’s Kitchen—in which he trained 15 unemployed kids to be chefs— revealed a serious individual with deep–held concerns about youth, work, and society. Now, media critics Stafford Hildred and Tim Ewbank talk to friends, family, and colleagues as they trace Jamie’s rocketing rise to the top.

I have always liked Jamie Oliver, but after reading this book I love him. Very well written and he shares so much more than I thought. What an interesting life he has led. I read it in one day and passed it on to a friend. Now 5 people have read this same book and all thought it was an excellent read. I can not understand how anyone could not love this book! If you read it you will not be disappionted.

Format: Paperback
This is the biography of British chef Jamie Oliver. I first encountered Jamie Oliver with his television program Oliver’s Twist and it was love at first bite. His approach to cooking, like his life, is simple and down to earth. This biography starts at his childhood and works its way through the year 2003. You catch a glimpse into the life behind the icon. The writing style, while a tad envious, flows well and I even laughed a few times. It was a quick and enjoyable read. I recommend it to all foodies, especially if you love Jamie Oliver.

Format: Paperback
This is probably the most poorly written book I have ever read. I really admire Jamie Oliver and have learned a lot from his TV series' and cooking style. The cookbooks are great! But this biography seemed to be cobbled together from various women's magazine interviews. Sometimes the same event was described three times, the same way. Where was the editing?!?

It would have been a good article, if it were edited down to 5% length. It was almost painful to read.
