Come on Jamie Oliver, you old geezer, please open a restaurant in Toronto!

Jamie Oliver’s stunt double takes one for the team in the latest Sobeys advert

We first got to hear about chef Jamie Oliver in his TV series The Naked Chef where he pounded out his tenderloin to the delight of British housewives everywhere.

Since then, Jamie has learned to cook REALLY well, has a thing for herb gardens, plays the drums and — although he’s from Essex — is still a good British lad.

He has recently teamed up with Sobeys and, even though the latest advert is a bit cheesy, this might be good news. If Jamie is forming closer Canadian ties, maybe we can hope for a Toronto restaurant in the near future?

Fair play to the geezer, the best ravioli I ever had was in Jamie’s restaurant Fifteen. Always remember it, and I’m not a massive pasta fan. Even more impressive is that most of the chefs are young apprentices who had a rough start in life.

So, Jamie, me old mucker, geezer and other cliched slang terms — please consider doing the same thing in Toronto! It would be pukka to have a celebrity Brit chef in town. We love our food here and I could definitely help spread the word around the foodie community.
