There's a lot cooking in the kitchen of world-famous chef Jamie Oliver. As one of Britain's most famous exports, the wickedly funny television personality has been the host of seven extremely popular shows, written more than half a dozen international best-selling books…and still finds time to revolutionize the way students eat in England.
Jamie's Favorite…Giving Back Moment: Doing charity work and rehabilitation in an unconventional way. I've got four top-class restaurants around the world that train hard-to-reach young people, mainly from prison, giving them a job. And in that same time I've been doing a lot of campaigns in England, trying to get better food in schools and basically causing a fair bit of creative trouble for the government, encouraging them to do a better job!
Food: I haven't really got a favorite food since my job is to keep changing it up. Italian definitely, and Asian stuff as well, but really it changes all the time.
Movie: The Outsiders
Type of Music and/or Artist: I like anything miserable. A lot of Brit stuff that Americans haven't really heard of—anyone who hollers and whines.
Time of Day: Bathtime, when I'm chilling. A little bit of peace and quiet.
Indulgence: Going out with the boys, somewhere away, kick around the night, have a few beverages and poker. Boys' night out.
Vacation: The Amalfi coast in Italy
Memory: My favorite memory can't be talked about on Oprah.com!
