Meet Jamie Oliver

Love him or hate him, you have to admit this sounds like a good prize: a trip for two from anywhere in the world to London, where you will dine for free at Jamie's restaurant Fifteen, stay in a luxury hotel and meet the man and his staff personally. The catch? You have to donate £5 to his charity, Cheeky Chops. Oh, and you have to convince Jamie that your most memorable meal is the Most Memorable Ever. Once you have made your donation, a box will pop up asking you to submit your story. Send him an amusing episode and you may well be on your way to London to dine in style!

To enter, visit the Jamie Oliver site here. The competition closes on April 30th, so get your entries in quick!

For a quick summary of the Cheeky Chops mission, continue reading...

Here is what the Cheeky Chops site has to say about itself:

Jamie Oliver had long been thinking about helping unemployed young people by offering them a leg-up into the world of catering. 'Having not been the brightest banana in the bunch myself, I realised that my biggest weapon in life was the determination, enthusiasm, hands-on and "actions speak louder than words" approach my father taught me, and I wanted to get this across to others, especially those interested in food.'

Cheeky Chops Ltd aims to provide unique opportunities for unemployed young people to learn about the hospitality and catering industry through training and practical experience. College learning is supplemented by real-world experience in top restaurants such as The Ivy and the River Café and finally, of course in Jamie’s restaurant, Fifteen. All profits from the Fifteen restaurant will go back to the charity towards training for the current and future intakes of students. It is hoped that these young chefs will be fully equipped with high-class employable skills, self-confidence and, of course, a passion for food, so that they may move forward and carve out their own futures.

Hi Jamies Friends,

Cannot "log-in". My crazy Johann, a dedicated pizza chef in Germany 3 years back but now "so called" Chef (hates the title that implies he is better than he is) works at a major tourist Hotel in New Zealand (but just engineers food recipes and demands of himself energy and hard work) has been trying so hard to work with a REAL kitchen staff to LEARN). He knows he is well short of any "standard" yet his clients love what he prepares and at least he entertains the kitchen with wit as he presses for presentation and timely delivery.
HE (and I), keying into EVERY TV series of Jamie (now in NZ his Italian escapade), would love to be invited to enter your competition.
Dream Wishes,
CHRIS and Johann

My 12yr old nephew is totally in awe of you and your cooking skills. He is a self-taught chef who has that knack of bringing together foods and spices, which he says is from watching your programmes and reading your cookery books. He was on Junior Master Chef about 2 years ago and continues to produce amazing meals for someone his age. It is his barmitzvah year and one of his wishes/dreams is to meet Jamie Oliver - can you help make this possible?
