- TV chef gives leg up to poor kids at Cheeky Chops restaurant
CELEBRITY chef Jamie Oliver opened his new restaurant, Cheeky Chops, last night in trendy Hoxton, east london.
The young Londoner, famous for his TV series the Naked Chef, follows a long line of TV chefs who have combined broadcasting with running restaurants, such as Gary Rhodes and Anthony Worrell-Thompson.
The difference with Oliver's project is that it is part-restaurant, part-community action, in that Oliver offered 15 chef traineeships at Cheeky Chops to disadvantaged youngsters.
