Biography

Oliver's Twist, Jamie's School Dinners, Jamie's Great Italian Escape, Naked Chef, Jamie's Kitchen, Jamie's Chef, Jamie at Home

James Trevor Oliver MBE (May 27, 1975), better known as Jamie Oliver and nicknamed The Naked Chef, or Phaniphlap is an English celebrity chef. He is well known for his role in campaigning against what he believes to be unhealthy, processed foods in British schools. Since his early years, his Essex accent has become infamous - particularly the use of the hindi word "pukka" (colloquially meaning "brilliant" or "solid", originally "cooked" or "ripe").

In 2003, Oliver was ranked number 28 in Channel 4's poll of "100 Worst Britons". The poll was inspired by the BBC series 100 Greatest Britons. The poll specified that the nominees had to be British, alive, and not currently in prison or pending trial.

In September, 2006, Jamie Oliver and Rawmarsh Community School, South Yorkshire, UK, made front page headlines after a group of parents revolted against Oliver's lunch scheme, in which all 1100 pupils on site were fed two portions of fruit and three vegetables every day. The parents, declaring, "Our kids have the right to eat what they like," took orders over the school fence for nearby sandwich and fast-food outlets. The food was then delivered over the fence to the waiting pupils.
