I always recommend his books for good recipes that really work.  His personality is another thing entirely, but he’s not raped or molested anyone which is nice.

I'd put child torture somewhere alongside those two, though.

He walks around council estates at night putting broccoli and cauliflower through letter boxes, while gauging on microchips and dressed like beige to throw them off the scent.

I have a love/hate feeling towards Jamie Oliver. I can't stand him but I really like his cookery shows. It doesn't even make sense to me. It goes back to when the wife and I lived in our first flat around 99/00 and we'd watch The Naked Chef. I'd take the piss out of him relentlessly for many of the reasons in the thread but I still really liked the show. I've always liked his stuff since like 30 minute meals and Jamie does Dallas and tha sort of thing but I still can't stand the guy.

I'm a member of the hating Jamie Oliver ultras. I think he's wank, his restaurants are wank and that his recipes are less wank, but misleading.

I once spent TWO HOURS. TWO HOURS. (how long) TWO HOURS, making this fucking potatoes dauphinoise with some other stuff I can't even remember. This was from his 30 MINUTE MENU. It was an experience painful to the extent that me and my other half at the time had almost drank two bottles of wine by the time this shit show made it to the table.

It was ludicrously complicated for what, I have found in hindsight, is not a complicated dish. Loads of pointless ingredients, some of which actively detracted from the rest of it. Why on earth you would add anchovies to it? The entire recipe seemed to be an excuse for him to slap his culinary wacker on the table and laud it over the rest of us who don't regularly have pantries full of esoteric bullshit. He also flat out lied about cooking timings to hit his stupid 30 minute target, you can't crisp up a potato dauphinoise in 15 minutes properly. What was he cooking this in? Hinkley Point? 

I bet Oliver was there in one of his many mansions, wallowing in a bath tub full of money and laughing, while I sat at home, hungry, drunk and ill from the offensive levels of salt I had ingested from potatoes with cream, cheese and fucking anchovies in. Nob.

First Carluccio dies, now Jamie hate resurfaces.  Onyx is currently texting a mate telling him the Vide Sous is in the enclosed pool area.

Isn't it Mr Biffo of Digitiser fame? He retweeted the first tweet I think.  But yes, it's marvellous.

More a link to articles than the account in of itself, but Oobah Butler (who writes for Vice) has come up with some of the best conceived idiocy I have ever read in recent months.
