Jamie Oliver is without a doubt one of the most successful British chefs. He and his colleague often go head-to-head for the most paid restaurateur in the UK title, but the important thing Jamie is always in the running. Oliver was born and raised in Essex where he started his culinary path as a pastry chef. Fame came to the future star in 1999 when he was 24 years old and started his own television program The Naked Chef.
