Fifteen Restaurant Review: Jamie Oliver is a likeable lad whose impact on the nation's tastes has been extraordinary. Fifteen refers to the fifteen unemployed youngsters whom he originally trained to be chefs, with great difficulty and before the restaurant opened, with full TV exposure. Now it has spawned other Fifteens from Cornwall to Australia and continues to teach. The professional staff and students have proved themselves more than up to the challenge of producing top quality Italian dishes that follow the classic Italian menu. Take San Daniele prosciutto with char-grilled asparagus, rocket and Parmesan, follow it with a gutsy risotto, then on to a particularly good fisherman’s stew or leg of Welsh lamb. The dolci? How about baked chocolate mousse with crème fraîche and raspberries in liqueur or the ripest of peaches roasted with a Prosecco zabaglione and almond praline? And that’s just the à la carte; go for the £60 Tasting Menu in the Dining Room for some extra culinary treats. Some of the alumni are now running their own restaurants; a public acknowledgement of what a determined chef can do. Set 2-course lunch £22.50, 3 courses £25; set tasting menu £60.
