Suspected food poisoning at Jamie Oliver's chain of Italian restaurants  

By Nick McDermott

He has campaigned to raise standards in kitchens across Britain.

But perhaps Jamie Oliver’s next culinary crusade will be a little closer to home after suspected cases of food poisoning at his chain of restaurants.

Branches of the Jamie’s Italians have been taken to task by food inspectors over a series of other failings too.

At one restaurant, they recommended that a dish be taken off the menu – and warned of a possible ‘viral outbreak’ at another.

Spot checks uncovered a catalogue of other failings at other Jamie’s Italians, including out-of-date meat served to staff, customers exposed to E.coli bacteria and ‘filthy’ equipment.

Management at one restaurant were even threatened with legal action unless they stopped serving undercooked burgers to customers.

There are 17 branches in the chain, which  is popular with families seeking simple, reasonably-priced Italian food.

The celebrity chef’s expanding business, alongside his recent book releases and Sainsbury’s advertising deal, helped propel him to 679th in the Sunday Times Rich List, with a personal fortune of £106million.

The 35-year-old is well known for his healthy eating campaigns – and his efforts to banish Turkey Twizzlers from school canteens.

His website, where he posts recipes and writes about food issues including tips on good kitchen hygiene, is visited by thousands each week.

The food safety failings were uncovered during spot-checks at 11 restaurants between November 2009 and November last year, and were released following a Freedom of Information request.

In one report, two customers at the Reading branch complained of being struck down with the potentially fatal norovirus, after eating a shellfish dish.

Inspectors raised concern about a ‘filthy’ can-opener blade, before writing: ‘The linguine alle vongole has generated two food poisoning complaints. We recommend that this is taken off the menu or that you warn customers that you cannot guarantee that clams are norovirus free.’

Inspectors were also worried about a possible ‘viral outbreak’ at the Cambridge restaurant and criticised cleanliness at the site, describing washing-up facilities as ‘heavily contaminated with grease’.

Senior environmental health officer Rebecca Broadbelt said: ‘Recently there have been numerous staff unwell and we have received several suspected food poisoning cases.’

 

險爆食物中毒 英廚神餐廳遭警告

(明報)2011年5月11日 星期三 05:05

【明報專訊】英國靚仔廚神奧利弗(Jamie Oliver) 推動健康飲食不遺餘力,亦致力推廣廚房衛生安全。但近日他所經營的多間連鎖餐廳「Jamie's Italian」卻被揭發在過去一年的衛生檢測多次不合格,有引致食物中毒危機;其中一分店更因漢堡扒不夠熟而被警告會遭票控。

「Jamie's Italian」在英國有17間分店,以便宜、健康的意大利菜作招徠,很受食客歡迎,是次公開的衛生檢測於2009年11月至去年11月在其中11間分店突擊進行。其中一份報告中,雷丁分店的兩名顧客投訴吃了用蜆炮製的菜式後感染能致命的諾如病毒(norovirus),調查報告指可能是開罐器太髒所致。

多間分店被批欠清潔

其他分店問題包括﹕劍橋分店被批評環境欠清潔,洗滌設施滿佈油脂,可能有病毒爆發危機,店內多名職員不適,有多宗懷疑食物中毒個案。金絲雀碼頭旗艦店被發現用過期肉類煮員工餐。吉爾福德分店烹調免治肉類時未能確保殺滅細菌,可能令顧客感染大腸桿菌。利茲分店因漢堡扒不夠熟,一度面臨票控。格拉斯哥分店被發現將食材放於地上。

Jamie Oliver的發言人強調,所有不合格項目都十分輕微,並已即時改善,沒有任何食物中毒個案遭證實,其餐廳亦從未收過當局下令改善的通知信。

知道Jamie's Italian 喺Glasgow 開咗分店已經有一段時間,不過我 + Mr.T 一直都無試過,而且亦無打算去試!

 因為......

有次渣車經過咁啱喺Jamie's Italian 停紅燈,我見到門口排咗一條好誇張既長龍............

 我: 哇~ 條龍咁長,幾好生意咁喎! 唔通d野好好食?

 老公: 係鬼~ 我有朋友來過,佢話好把鬼!

 我: 咁把鬼點解仲有咁多人排隊?

 老公: 因為佢地扮哂野唔比人訂位囉!

老公朋友既經驗 - 喺餐廳門口排咗一大輪後,侍應先帶佢地去酒吧再坐咗一大輪,期間不斷push 佢地喺酒吧買野飲,喺酒吧呆咗45分鐘之後先帶佢地去枱開始點菜!

不過老公朋友話餐廳當時根本唔爆有大把枱,唔明點解要佢地喺門口排完一輪,再要佢地"蒲吧"先比枱佢地!!

後來我又有一次經過Jamie's Italian 門口,依然見客人喺門口排隊,當時我好奇望入餐廳,但裡面其實只疏疏落落得3、4枱客人 - 我都唔明門口果咋排緊隊既客人點解要等?

食一餐飯浪費咗大部份時間來等枱入座,而且食物質素不外如是......好有貼錢買難受feel 喎!

 

嗱~ 首先我對"唔比人訂位"依個做法真係好反感!

好似其他餐廳咁正正經經,客人打電話來訂位有咩問題先?

而且餐廳又唔係爆棚,點解要客人喺門口好似輪米咁輪??

英國好多餐廳都附有酒吧,雖然客人入座前先喺酒吧飲野social 吓係好正常,不過喺酒吧45分鐘後先帶客人入座是否太誇張呀?

當年Mr.T 帶我過去另一英國名廚Gordon Ramsay 主理,位於One Devonshire Gardens 裡面既Amarylis,人地咁多荷李活明星幫襯都只係要預早2個月訂枱,點洗客人棟喺門口吹西北風咁Q巴閉架!!?!??

我個人睇法係 - 若係真正有料,根本唔需要搞咁多無聊動作來引人注意啦!  

 

 第二唔明點解Jamie Oliver 開餐廳會選擇做意大利菜?

而且仲打正旗號話係"Authentic"......喂~ 你英國人來果喎!

 

我見網上好多人對Jamie's Italian 既評價講得最多就係over-priced + over-rated......我唔排除喺門口排隊等食果班客人,去幫襯只係為咗Jamie Oliver 個朵!

為咗名廚個朵而幫襯一間餐廳其實都無可厚非既,不過Jamie's Italian 同Amarylis 有好大分別喎......

當年One Devonshire Gardens 裡面既Amarylis,的而且確係由Gordon Ramsay 本人親自去主理運作;

相反Jamie's Italian 全英有17間分店~ 好明顯Jamie Oliver 只係賣"名",對我來講同Nando's, Frankie & Benny's......依咋連鎖式餐廳無咩分別! 性質同麥麥、KFC、Burger King 都係一樣!!

 

剛過去既weekend 我地喺Jamie's Italian 附近泊車,終於第一次唔見有人喺門口排隊!

當時只好快咁唸過"唔通執咗笠?" ,之後就無再深究,因為無咩興趣......

直至今朝睇到新聞,原來Jamie's Italian 發現有懷疑食物中毒個案!

唔怪之無人排隊啦!!

 

我自己一向對Jamie Oliver 無咩感覺,好少睇佢主持既烹調節目,更加無買過佢既書,佢令我最深刻既反而係佢一口黐脷筋既英文......

 
 而且唔明點解香港咁多人覺得佢靚仔!!?!
