Why we all hate Jamie Oliver - by Mecca Ibrahim

Who is Jamie Oliver? Well, if you live in the USA there’s a fair chance you haven’t heard of him. If you live in the UK and you have a TV, you will see this cockney ‘chef’ appearing on countless adverts for Sainsbury’s supermarket as well as in his own food programmes.

Jamie has this great ability to cause emotions in people. Love him or hate him, you can’t really be indifferent to him. My husband liked his first TV series and I really liked his second TV series. By the third series we both wanted to throw the trusty food mixer at the TV.

How Jamie saved me, by a new-born chef

TV chef Jamie Oliver taught 15 jobless teenagers how to run a restaurant. Tim Siadatan was one of the nine star pupils. Oliver has gambled £1.3 million of his own money to make the scheme a success, and the programme showed all the qualities that make the chef admirable: he is hard-working, loyal, responsible, generous and sympathetic, but even these qualities did not guarantee success. Viewers watched in incredulity as the students appeared to rebel against 27-year-old Oliver’s attempts to persuade them into working, opting instead to accuse him of using them to forward his own career, and often not turning up for work at all.
