Fifteen restaurants

Fifteen restaurants

Fifteen is the name of several restaurants created by the English celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

History

Oliver created the restaurant as part of a 2002 TV series, "Jamie's Kitchen", broadcast on Channel 4. Jamie Oliver recruited fifteen unemployed young people, some homeless and others with learning difficulties, and trained them from scratch to become professional-standard chefs. This continued after the TV series finished, and the restaurant has become a success. Many of its graduates have moved on to other top restaurants in London.Fact|date=October 2007

Fifteen was also featured in the follow-up series, "Return to Jamie's Kitchen" and provided a backdrop to the 2005 series "Jamie's School Dinners". The restaurant is a charitable foundation, with all profits generated spent on training its recruits.

Locations

The original Fifteen is located in Hoxton, in the London Borough of Hackney. In 2004, Fifteen Amsterdam opened in The Netherlands. In May 2006, Fifteen Cornwall opened in Watergate Bay, Newquay and Fifteen Melbourne, Australia opened in September 2006.
