Fascinating show, sometimes difficult to watch.
7 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Basically, Jamie Oliver is taking a huge financial beating to create a restaurant whose primary purpose is to give opportunity to disadvantaged young people. It's not even expected to be a profit center, more of a hobby farm/charity.

Don't expect to see "Naked Chef" niceness here. Jamie Oliver has to get tough and his language is vulgar, even while he's doing a really good and kind thing. I'd not be keen on putting young kids in front of the set unless you want to hear them repeating a lot of choice words.

Some of the the students appalling work habits and personality flaws (no wonder they were unemployed!) It's interesting and frankly surprising to see which ones make it and which ones fall out. It takes its toll on the viewer, so I try not to watch too much in a single sitting. You sometimes want to yell at the participants.

OTOH, there is a lot of food service reality here, though Oliver gives people more chances than they'd ever get in real food service. Among the tongue-lashings and arguments, he gives them one awesome opportunity.

Jamie Oliver is a heck of a guy. He really put out for this.
