    Jamie Oliver Says Sunday Lunch Saved Him

    Jamie Oliver Says Sunday Lunch Saved Him

    From dyslexic kid to best-selling author... Despite being one of the best-selling authors in UK history, Jamie Oliver didn't read a whole book until he was 38. He's dyslexic, and writes by dictation. Growing up, school was a huge struggle for him. When he began cooking as a kid it was the first time he thought, "I'm good at something." Later, when he became a celebrity chef and tried to use cooking to help others, he was met with skepticism from the press, and his parents. In this week's show he tells us why he thinks that reaction is very human, and talks about coming back from the collapse of his UK restaurant business.

    The Daily Show correspondent has a lot of food opinions... Ronny Chieng’s recurring segment on The Daily Show is called “Everything Is Stupid,” and you could say that’s the theme of a lot of his stand-up, too. His style is often grumpy and caustic.

He also talks about his meticulous system for keeping track of restaurants he likes, how to get a big group to decide where to eat, and what he loves about food in Malaysia and Singapore.
