Jamie Oliver is Britain's best-loved chef. With his down-to-earth approach to sophisticated food, he has become a TV star, written countless bestselling books, taken America by storm and earned himself an MBE. Lately, Jamie has transformed himself from being more than just a youth icon. The TV series' "Jamie's Kitchen and Fifteen" have revealed a more serious and edgy side to his personality, giving his fans a glimpse of the hard-grafting, hard-talking chef that took him to the top early in his career. His deep-held concerns about society and the importance of hard work made him an admirable role model and proved that there is far more to Jamie than his usually bubbly persona lets on. In this affectionate yet hard-hitting biography, bestselling authors Stafford Hildred and Tim Ewbank have created the definitive portrait of a lively personality. They have approached Jamie's friends, family and colleagues to produce an incisive, witty biography that shows just what makes him tick.
