5.0 out of 5 stars He's the Cat's Meow, 11 Dec. 2009

This review is from: Jamie Oliver - Jamie's Kitchen [DVD] (DVD)
I rented this DVD from the library and then later-on had to buy it. The man is a dynamo and what a great humanitarian. It's proof-positive that one person can indeed make a difference in the lives of others. The rise of his idea and plans for the restaurant and the subequent (sp?) choice of students and the amazing gigs he gets these kids; how he takes them from just average kids to truly trained chefs is incredible. And Jamie, as you'd expect, is both caring and focused, tough eventually (they are basically teens and young adults who get an opportunity so huge that it really doesn't dawn on the majority of them who think these kind of chances will come along every day - like we all do when we are young) but mostly he's just a brilliant, non-stop, take-no for an answer entrepreneur as always forcing his visions into reality. It's quite the gripping 'documentary'; it's amazing to me how much he gets done and how much you end up rooting for Jamie to get this endevor off the ground. He, of course, does, but how he does it is journey deservedly filmed and shared. That cover with him looking like he's going to lose it if one more thing goes wrong? It's a miracle he didn't and have a nervous breakdown. Great DVD about the restaurant/cooking lifestyle and pulling off the ultimate culinary philantrophic feat.
