What is Jamie Oliver’s Net Worth?
Jamie Oliver is a British TV Personality, Chef, and restaurateur who has a net worth of $200 million. Several endorsement deals, television series, and restaurants have earned him fortunes.
He offers his knowledge of gourmet eating and cooking through his books and his show, The Naked Chef. He is considered a culinary virtuoso in Italian and British cuisine, but he is also a master in a variety of other international cuisines.
Jamie Oliver was born in the Essex town of Clavering. He grew up in Cambridge. Jamie’s parents, Trevor and Sally Oliver owned a pub named The Cricketers, where he first got a taste of the food business.
Jamie began helping out in the kitchen as a small child, and his desire for a profession in the culinary arts expanded as he grew older.
At the age of 16, Oliver began his career at the Westminster Catering College and soon after began working in France before becoming the head pastry Chef at Antonio Carlugios’ Italian restaurant, The Neal Street Restaurant.
The Neal Street Restaurant is a well-known eatery in England. His tutor, Gennaro Contaldo, became a close friend.
Later in his career, Oliver hired Contaldo to help him run Jamie’s Italian, his high-end restaurant network. Jamie then worked for three and a half years as a sous-chef at The River Café.
His media career took off after he appeared in the documentary “Christmas at The River Café” for the restaurant. Jamie received multiple offers to host his own show after the documentary was shown.
As a result of this, the show “The Naked Chef” was formed. It premiered on BBC in 1999, and his first cookbook quickly became a best-seller in the United Kingdom.
That same year, Oliver was requested to serve lunch at 10 Downing Street for then-Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Jamie presented another Channel 4 television series, Jamie’s Kitchen, in which he trains 15 young people to be cooks and sets them in his first restaurant, Fifteen.
His emphasis on cooking fresh and nutritious food was carried over into “Jamie’s Ministry of Food,” a television series in which he goes to inspire ordinary people in Rotherham, Yorkshire, to prepare healthy meals.
In 2010, he aired “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” in which he traveled to Huntington, West Virginia, and Los Angeles to address America’s reliance on fast food and inspire people to modify their eating habits. In 2012, he was the host of Channel 4’s “Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals.”
Jamie Oliver is married to Juliette Norton, a former model. Buddy Bear Maurice, Poppy Honey Rosie, Petal Blossom Rainbow, Daisy Boo Pamela, and River Rocket Blue are their offspring.
The Oliver family had long lived on London’s Hampstead Heath, but in the summer of 2019, they relocated to a £6 million 16th-century mansion near Finchingfield, Essex.
On 70 acres, the estate has a six-bedroom farmhouse, a three-bedroom lodge, a pool, and a tennis court.
The Restaurant Empire Has Fallen
Unfortunately, his eateries have not fared as well as his books and television show. Jamie Oliver’s restaurant chain declared bankruptcy in May 2019.
As a result of the failure, 22 of 25 Jamie’s Italian restaurants closed, and over 1000 people were laid off. The restaurant chain owed tens of millions of dollars, including approximately $10 million given by Jamie in 2017.
The group’s debt topped $90 million at one point. The bankruptcy administrators stated in January 2020 that the majority of the £80 million owed to Jamie Oliver’s restaurant business after its demise in May 2019 would not be recovered.
