Eat & Drink — London
For the Healthy Bite

Fifteen is at the forefront of new companies, operating with a business model that links directly to social responsibility. They make a delicious winter squash risotto tart and white chocolate brownie with amaretto which is absolutely essential. We highly recommend cappuccino is also a must try: they serve it so beautifully that you might feel bad about drinking it.
Jamie Oliver places more emphasis on quality ingredients than extraordinarily chic culinary techniques. His television show The Naked Chef, has changed British culinary habits for the better, inspiring people to reconnect with food. Besides creating a global movement towards healthier eating, Jamie has created Fifteen, whose young kitchen assistants come from social environments with difficulties and ethnic minorities. The top floors of this old restored firehouse, next to the Old Street roundabout, serves as a cooking school. There the chefs learn the necessary skills to serve meals in one of the two restaurants located on the lower floors: a cheaper trattoria on the ground floor and a dining room in the lower area providing an a la carte menu and a more sophisticated atmosphere.
