Jamie Oliver was born in Clavering, Essex, England and was raised in Cambridge.

Jamie would help out around the kitchen when he was just a small child, and as he matured, so did his desire for the culinary profession. He attended the Westminster Catering College at the age of 16, and soon after began working in France and then moved on to take a position at Antonio Carlugios's Italian restaurant, The Neal Street Restaurant, as the head pastry Chef.

Next, Jamie was employed at The River Café for three and one half years. Jamie's media career really took off after he appeared in a documentary for the restaurant called "Christmas at The River Café". After seeing the documentary, offers came flowing in for Jamie to have his own show. And thus The Naked Chef was born.
But Jamie also has another television series called Jamie's Kitchen where he trains 15 young people in the restaurant business as chefs, and puts them to work in his very first establishment, called Fifteen. The Fifteen program provided training for young people in three locations around the world. Along with the "Fifteen" restaurants, Jamie also is co-owner of the Barbecoa Restaurant in London.
