Fantastic Reality/Cooking Show
t.w. | san diego, ca | 05/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an amazing DVD to buy for anyone interested in cooking or, especially, owning thier own restaurant (and face it---how many people do you know that say, "some day, I'd love to have my own little cafe..."). This is one of the best shows I've ever seen---It's a cross between a soap opera, cooking show and reality show. Once you start watching it, you'll be hooked.

Basically, Jamie Oliver (the "Naked Chef" for those of you not obsessed with the Food Network) takes a bunch of kids who are unemployed and completely unskilled (at least in the kitchen) and turns them into chefs. Along the way, you get a glimpse into what it's like to be a celebrity chef, the pressures of opening a new restaurant (HELLO??? how can ANYone afford such a venture?) and how frustrating a project of this scope must be (especially when your every move is being watched by the cameras). It's fascinating to watch the transformation of these kids (actually, they're in their early 20's, I think).

To me, this is just another example of how great British TV has become -- I highly recommend this DVD."
Jamie Oliver as You've Never Seen Him Before
Scott Mayle | Gilbert, Arizona | 05/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great series that originally aired on the BBC and also played on the Food Network. I saw it when it aired on the Food Network and I was so happy to see that it was coming to DVD. It's a great show that really gives you an inside look at what it takes to get a resturaunt off the ground. As if that wasn't hard enough, to do it with 15 untrained people who have a passion for cooking but no official experience is just a daunting task.

You'll see the frustration, and the aggrivation when things go wrong. As well as the jubilation when everything is going right, which is rarely the case it seems. Jamie is great at letting the camera see exactly whats going on in his mind. He rarely holds back and always speaks his mind when things arent going his way.

In the end it's really a great look into how people cope with being put into situations they arent used to and how far people will go when they are passionate about something. I highly reccomend this DVD to any fan of Jamie Oliver or any person thinking about getting into the resturaunt business. It's extremely entertaining and you won't be disappointed at all."
This guy is histerical!

"My wife bought this and we watched it over the weekend, and I was looking here to see what other people thought of it and I can't believe no one has said how funny Jamie is. When he's not being ravaged with business decisions and dealing with personal issues, Jamie seems like a great down to earth guy. He had me cracking up quite a few times. I wasn't sure if I'd like this show as I had only seen his Naked Chef show a few times and I wasn't that excited about it. But this was great. I can't believe his resturaunt ever opened with these kids. They start out not knowing anything he turns them into hard working chefs. It's really amazing.

I don't know what to compare this show to but it's a reality series thats for sure. But not like other ones you've seen really. It's a lot more personal than other shows like it I think. I had a great time watching it and I think you will too."
Has Jamie bitten off more than he can chew??

"He may have, but that's half the fun of watching this series..

I wanted to write a review about this because I really loved the series. I'm hoping that he actually does the whole thing again. It was really exciting, and interesting to see a side of Jamie Oliver that you really never get to see on his cooking shows, even though those are based on a "reality". This is Jamie Oliver RAW. You see him out of the kitchen, dealing with the stresses of starting his resturaunt, the stresses of his gf's pregnacy, the finances, dealing with 15 kids who have never worked in a kitchen before. It's amazing the whole thing did not come falling down on him.

If you have seen Olivers Twist, or The Naked chef and enjoyed those shows then you owe it to yourself to check this one out. It's not a cooking show, it's a reality show, but it's very worth the purchase. I can't wait to see the whole thing over again!"
