Unpalatable criticism from the unimpressed cook:
GLOBE-TROTTING celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has described Melbourne as one of the most drug-plagued cities in the world. In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Herald Sun, the English chef unleashed a broadside on the city's drug-addled underbelly.
Oliver revealed that the shock of seeing young drug addicts shooting up in St Kilda swayed him to choose Australia for his latest restaurant project. "I've been loads of places, right, and Melbourne is the only place I have ever seen multiple kids jacking up on the street," Oliver said. "Don't get me wrong, every city has its light and shade, but you do have your share of shade."
