So this is my first entry to JamieOliver.com. My name is John, I'm 33 years old, and I'm from Toronto.
I was a chef for over ten years, working in fine dining restaurants and hotels in downtown Toronto.
I left cooking, due to extremely long hours, low pay and numerous abuse.

For the past eight months I have returned to school, to study nutrition. I owe that to Jamie Oliver. I loved Jamie's speech that he gave at TED Talks. I don't know how many times I have listened to it on my Ipod on the subways to and from work, when I need inspiration. I truly agree with Jamie that food can profoundly effect our health in this world today. Since then I have been in school trying to learn how to make people healthy. I want to thank Jamie for that.

Just now as I type away I am surrounded by papers and therapeutic menus that I have to work on!

I will be blogging soon!!
