New Delhi, Aug 19 (IANS) Foodies in India now have a reason to rejoice as celebrity chef Jamie Oliver announced on Wednesday that two of his restaurants, Jamie’s Italian and Jamie’s Pizzeria, will soon be launching here and in Gurgaon.
Jamie’s Italian will open in Ambience Mall in the capital’s Vasant Kunj area and Jamie’s Pizzeria is set to open in Ambience Mall in capital suburb Gurgaon.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be bringing Jamie’s Italian and Jamie’s Pizzeria to India. Delhi is a vibrant, colourful, buzzing city with an already incredible food scene, so to be opening two restaurants there is a huge honour,” Oliver said in a statement.
“Right now we’re recruiting for two brilliant new teams who will become part of our ever-growing family. When we open the doors of both restaurants, they’ll be serving up some really beautiful, simple, great-value Italian food, all made with the very best-quality ingredients we can get our hands on,” he added.
Both restaurants will open within the next few months.
Explaining the approach to his restaurants, Oliver said: “Since I was a teenager, I’ve been totally besotted by the love, passion and verve for food, family and life itself that just about all the Italian people have, no matter where they’re from or how rich or poor they may be. And that’s what I’m passionate about – good food for everyone, no matter what.”
