Jamie Oliver started 2010 by winning the $100,000 TED Prize for his impassioned plea for America and the world to embrace a healthy food movement and starting a Food Revolution in Huntington, West Virginia against obesity. The Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution based on the show he produced with Ryan Seacrest has more than 600,000 supporters now and with a bit of luck could be another success for Jamie Oliver’s show and his campaign. He also got a show Jamie Does… this year.
Oliver’s iPhone application, 20 Minute Meal, received an Apple Design Awards 2010 for best iPhone App at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
This year Jamie Oliver’s personal wealth of £65million ($99 million) placed him among Britain’s 1000 wealthiest individuals in the Times Rich List. At the same time he was also recognized as one of the country’s greatest givers at number 22 in the Times Giving List by giving away to charity £2.7million, equivalently 4.2 percent of his wealth. Well, that is just a great way to start a new decade for Jamie Oliver.
