Jamie Trevor Oliver is a British chef, restaurateur and the host of Jamie's Ministry of Food. His approachable cuisine has seen him front numerous television shows and open many restaurants.
Superstar chef and fresh food champion Jamie Oliver brings his signature effervescence and passion for pure, unprocessed, flavor-packed food as he talks with Carla Hall about his book, Ultimate Veg. From burgers and fritters to gorgeous curries to pies and bakes, Oliver shares his recipes, tips, and philosophy that veg-based food is no longer an "alternative" –– it’s for us all. The conversation was recorded on January 7, 2020 in front of a live audience at New York's 92nd Street Y.
We were only going to do meals on wheels and travel to someone else's place if they were someone we have been angling for since series 1. And of course they were most certainly going to get THE chicken soup (I had a massive cold so it was selfishly suggested by moi). It's JAMIE OLIVER!! The Naked Chef, the people's champ, the person who taught most of us millennials how to cook.We grab Jamie at Jamie Oliver HQ after we watch him high five all his staff, kiss babies and see a team pickling sesh going on.He proclaims mum's balls are the best he's ever had, we talk a lot about family, the nostalgic smell of hibiscus, dyslexia, his wife eating gravy with a fork and holding back his cookbook Veg for years. What an honour to meet this gent. X  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
On the anniversary of TV series 'The Naked Chef', Jamie Oliver talks to Sheila Dillon about two controversial decades dominating food on our TV screens and online, our home cooking, and dining out. In a two-part programme, Jamie describes being propelled into the limelight as 'The Naked Chef'. The charismatic young line chef given an unexpected TV pilot. His decision not to aim for Michelin stars, but to open a training restaurant for young people who wouldn’t have considered a career in catering. From writing his best-selling books, mainly into a dictaphone due to his Dyslexia, to his relationship with the UK press, and his successes and failings working with a succession of UK governments to get the UK eating healthier. Sheila also speaks to Instagram chef Joe Wicks, Netflix chef Samin Nosrat and members of Jamie’s inner team on the influence of the highest grossing British food writer of all time. This is the second part of two programmes on Jamie Oliver's Life Through Food. Part one was broadcast on Sunday 18th August 2019. Presented by Sheila Dillon Produced by Clare Salisbury
This week we talk everything from Carnival to Jamie Oliver's Jafakan Rice and what the hell was Madonna doing on that stage ?
