Jamie Oliver branches out into online dating

Friday November 20, 2009

When it comes to being passionate about food, Jamie Oliver is the king of the kitchen.

And his belief that cooking is a powerful way to bring people together was the basis for his latest venture – a new dating service on his website.

Jamie says the aim of the new section – linked to Match.com – was to "get single people who loved food, to love each other."

"Hopefully…we'll be able to bring single food lovers together and make some love matches," said the 34-year-old.

Those who do sign up will be able to read dating tips and well as follow romantic recipes perfect for first-dates.

His cooking credentials are well known, but Jamie is knowledgeable when it comes to love too.

He has been married to long-term love Jules since 2000, and he is dad to three little girls, Poppy, Daisy and baby Petal.
