'FIFTEEN', Jamie Oliver's new restaurant, tasted outstanding dishes and delicious wines from official wine sponsor Yalumba. Unwooded Chardonnay and Merlot from the recently launched Y Series were freely flowing.

Jamie's much talked about charity venture, which was the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, ‘Jamie's Kitchen', offers young hopefuls from underprivileged backgrounds the opportunity to receive professional training and hands-on experience under his personal direction. The aim is to open up real career opportunities for them within the restaurant industry and all the dishes at the launch were prepared by the programme's very first intake of students.

Yalumba Proprietor, Robert Hill Smith, said: "As wine sponsors for this event, Yalumba are very proud to be able to support Jamie in this venture and are hugely impressed by the incredible progress that the students have made under his direction. Jamie’s passion for making this amazing venture happen is inspirational. We wish him and all his students success in the future."
