Pukka Tukka From The Chubby Fukka - Jamie Oliver Dundrum

When I was training as a chef Jamie Oliver had just burst on the scene. All my peers and most chefs I've ever talked to hate him. "He's not a real chef" is the most common phrase I've heard over the years but I disagree.

There are tons of better chefs with more technical ability who could cook Jamie under the table with their big fancy Michelin stars but they are cooking for a handful of people who can afford to eat in their expensive dining rooms each day…
